Is 会場 more like an assembly hall? When I looked up stadium, the closest thing I got was 競技場 (きょう ぎ じょう) - Competitive skills arena. I feel like that's a little closer.

If you read the Japanese wiki on Olympic Stadiums, you'll see 会場 (kaijou), 競技場 (kyougijou) and スタジアム (sutajiamu) all used in varying ways to refer to Olympic stadiums.

I reported it.

I read the first word as kaiju and thought 'yes they certainly are'

「スタジアムはとても大きいです」とも言えます。

スタジアムはとても大きいです was accepted for me today.

会場はとても大きいです。This is a basic sentence with almost no possibility of multiple strange translations. What could possibly go wrong?

What indeed? ★スタジアム★はとても★広い★です。

How do I get it to accept スタジアム? Fairly sure that's far more commonly used to refer to a sports arena than かいじょう (which is a pretty generic term).

Report it! If you're lucky enough to get the fourth option. It comes and goes.

I think 会場 means the place to hold an event, right?
