The World 5 Largest Stadiums

Huge sporting stadiums may be a thing of the past, with stadium design now focusing on spectator experiences and comfort, and the move to TV and online viewing. But ultimately, it is the sports played in these stadiums that are the main attraction. These are the world's 5 largest stadiums.

Rungrado May Day Stadium - 150,000

The stadium is shaped like a parachute, though it was intended to resemble a magnolia flower. It is designed to host numerous types of sporting events, including football (soccer) matches involving North Korea’s national team.
