Football’s growth and popularity has fuelled a large number of teams and countries to build massive stadiums. While many football fans in this country prefer the old timey grounds of Craven Cottage and Goodison Park, there are supporters who love the comfort of spacious seating and excellent sight lines. Regardless of which type of stadium fans prefer, they can visit AT Madrid to wager on their favourite team before the next big game.

Some of the biggest football stadiums in the world provide fans with a combination of great seats and atmosphere. Here is a look at the world’s five biggest football stadiums:

5. Rose Bowl – 90,888 capacity

Harrow Times:

The Rose Bowl is located in swanky Pasadena, California and it is the home to the UCLA Bruins American football team. The venue holds a capacity of 90,888. Yes, it is a stadium built for a college gridiron football team. Fans can wager on the latest football matches using this code and follow the teams they predict will win.

While mostly used over the years for gridiron, the Rose Bowl has plenty of history with proper football as well. It regularly hosts international fixtures featuring CONCACAF teams. In 2018, the Rose Bowl signed an agreement with the LA Galaxy to host the team’s home matches that exceed 35,000 fans. The Galaxy’s current venue is unable to hold more than 27,000 supporters. Perhaps the Rose Bowl’s biggest claim to fame was hosting the 1994 World Cup Final.

4. FNB Stadium – 94,736 capacity

Harrow Times:

FNB Stadium is better known as South Africa’s Soccer City. The venue played host to games at the 2010 World Cup including the final between the Netherlands and Spain.

Soccer City is now the home of the South African national team and the Kaizer Chiefs. In 2015, the Kaizer Chiefs and local derby rivals, the Orlando Pirates, broke the stadium’s attendance record with 94,807 fans watching the game.

3. Camp Nou – 99,354 capacity

Harrow Times:

Barcelona can lay claim to having the biggest club ground in world football. The stadium is iconic for fans all over the world and many take trips to Barcelona just to tour the ground.

The club has received permission from Barcelona’s council to expand the stadium and increase the capacity to 105,000 in the future. The increase will make Camp Nou the second largest football stadium in the world.

2. Melbourne Cricket Ground – 100,024

Harrow Times:

The Melbourne Cricket Ground, or MCG, wasn’t built for football as the name implies. The MCG has been the home to cricket and a variety of Australian Rules Football teams since it was built in 1853.

While Melbourne-based teams do not play at the MCG, the stadium does host Australian national team games. The venue has also hosted friendlies between A-league clubs and European teams who tour Australia in pre-season.

1. Rungrado 1st of May Stadium – 150,000 capacity

Harrow Times:

Is the Rungrado 1st of May Stadium really the biggest in the world? If you believe North Korea’s propaganda machine, then it is. The Rungrado was opened in 1989 just before the country’s 1994 famine wiped out as many as 3.5 million people. Rungrado plays host to the North Korean national team’s home games along with a number of other events put on by the government.

The stadium, like most things in North Korea, was built to show the country’s strength against the capitalist west. But like other monuments in North Korea, there is very little money to maintain the venue or for the population to attend games.
