There is a huge difference between could be and it would be sensible to do so.

Many stadiums are used for other events such as concerts. 

Whilst it not hard to switch a stadium between soccer and rugby, it happens often, stadiums are sized for the sport.  A soccer or rugby stadium is too small for cricket and if you held a soccer or rugby match in a cricket stadium the fans would be so far away it would destroy the atmosphere.

The old Wembley Stadium had a running track around the pitch, the new one was built without that space so as not to destroy the atmosphere.
