Top 10 List:

[more Top-10 Lists]

Stadia capacities can vary depending on the configuration, sometimes seats are taken away for certain sports. Many of these stadiums once had a larger capacity - over time standing room is being replaced by more comfortable (and safer) seating for all spectators. New stadiums are being built, and others modified, so this list will change over time. This list was updated in 2023.
