British English?

The British English word seems to be stands. Do they have the same meaning or does stands have a broader definition? (So far stand is not used at all while bleacher/s is used 400x) --AndiG88 (talk) 10:40, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

I'd say they're the same thing, or close enough, but I'm in the US so forgive me if there's some difference for British stands. --Marion Barry (talk) 19:00, 12 December 2016 (UTC)

It's a grandstand

What are stands anyway? They could be anything. The tag would make no sense. The singular word grandstand is used universally and is very specific, describing the intended feature accurately with minimal chance of confusion. -- T99 (talk) 19:58, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

It appears building=grandstand is very similar to bleachers. However, in the wiki page definition for grandstand, it says they are "usually roofed." In the US, most bleachers, especially at locations like secondary schools, are not roofed (as shown in the picture on bleachers page), so I'm not sure if grandstand is quite right? --Neuhausr (talk) 14:26, 14 March 2018 (UTC)
