Not much difference. For example, in Spain, tennis matches are played in
bullrings. They are suitable for other types of sports. Live concerts are
also performed in bullrings.

That's right. One thing is the arena where bullfighting is performed.
("leisure=stadium" + "sport=bullfighting") and another the building
("building=stadium"). It has been hard for me to explain to the Spanish
community that the stadium is still a stadium even though bullfights are no
longer performed there. It seems that they have finally understood it.

I prefer "building=stadium" because a "bullring" is a type of stadium where
you can do other things besides performing bullfights. It does not differ so
significantly from other types of stadiums as to specify that it is a
different building. It is a type of stadium. However, if someone prefers to
use "building=bullring" I think it is possible. I prefer "building=stadium"
according to the common tag used for this type of building.

Thank you for commenting.
