Home Field Advantage

In team sports, the term home advantage (also called home field/court/ice advantage) describes the advantage that the home team is said to have over the visiting team as a result of playing in familiar facilities and in front of supportive fans. The term is also widely used in "best-of" playoff formats (e.g., best-of-seven) as being given to the team that is scheduled to play one more game at home than their opponent if all necessary games are played.In many sports, such designations may also apply to games played at a neutral site; as the rules of various sports make different provisions for home and visiting teams.
