I was under an impression that some ALD recordings were done with gear owned by the person recording. I guess I don't really know much about the topic.

I am under the impression that most prospective ALD recordists would be planning to try to plug their own recorder into an ALD system borrowed/rented from the provider at the venue, intended for the hearing impaired. If it works, some might consider it worthwhile to invest in their own ALD system.

You can check it out from the venue. But I recommend buying your own receiver(s), they're not expensive.

OP, if you're serious, go check out the venue you're seeing the show at. Go see a basketball game there or something, check out the ALD, see if the system works. Then buy your own receiver and do what you want at the show.
Audio: AT943 + SBD feeds

Recorders: Cymatic Utrack24, Cymatic LR16, RME Multiface, (2) Tascam 680, (2) Tascam 2D, Zoom H6, Zoom H4n, and a graveyard of irivers/nomads/minidiscs.

I don't know any venue that has ALD to begin with.
I am sure some people confuse an ALD with an IEM too

In the United States, since 2010, the Americans with Disabilities Act requires that any public entertainment space using amplified sound must offer Assisted Listening Devices to people with hearing impairments. So if you are in the USA, that means pretty much every place that has amplified concerts or sporting events anywhere near you will offer ALDs or risk being in non-compliance with the ADA.

If you are not in the USA: never mind.

Lastly, I know some professional musicians who need both an IEM and an ALD, even if they don’t realize it yet. (Because they have damaged their hearing)

All of this is so true. Great job opportunity for the future, installing, setting up, and maintaining ALD systems! I've been working on live events in various capacities for a while, and only a few times have there been deaf sign interpreters, or an open caption feed. But they are getting more common on large high-profile events.
