The association of being at home with feelings of increased physical comfort, safety, and psychological well-being are reflected in a wealth of popular expressions and sayings, such as, Home free; Home is where the heart is; East-West, home is best; Home sweet home; There's no place like home. Thus, it is hardly surprising that the term home advantage has been adopted in sport to represent two related phenomena-both of which are founded on the belief that a team's own park, stadia, or venue is, indeed, a good place in which to compete.
