Football is one of the world’s biggest and most popular sports. According to the 2016 FIFA Big Count, there are 290 million soccer players in the world, 300 million when referees and match officials are included. This has led to stadiums becoming increasingly sophisticated and bigger.

Barcelona has already decided to extend the Camp Nou stadium to a capacity of 105,000. Real Madrid and Madrid City Council have reached an agreement over the €400 million renovation of the Santiago Bernabeu. Chelsea has also secured permission for Stamford Bridge stadium to expand the ground’s capacity to 60,000 seats.

We look at the biggest football stadiums in the world (by capacity) :

 

1) Rungrado May Day Stadium – Pyongyang, North Korea.

Capacity: 150,000

Home team: North Korea National Team

This North Korean stadium is not just the largest football stadium in the world, but the largest stadium in the world excluding those built for auto-racing. Predominantly it is used for ‘arirang’ performances (also known as the Mass Games) and state events, but the North Korea national football team still plays some of its matches at the stadium.
