List of European stadiums by capacity

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Camp Nou is the highest capacity stadium in Europe.

The following is a list of European stadiums. They are ordered by their capacity; i.e. the maximum number of spectators the stadium can accommodate. The capacity figures are permanent total capacity, including seating and any standing areas, and excluding any temporary seating.

Most large stadiums in Europe are used for association football, with the rest hosting rugby union, rugby league, cricket, track and field, bandy, and Gaelic games (Gaelic football, hurling and camogie).

All stadiums with a capacity of 25,000 or more are included. The list includes all such stadiums in any country which is commonly accepted to be within the borders of Europe, including transcontinental countries that are partially in Europe (e.g. Turkey), or in a country commonly thought to be European for cultural or historic reasons (e.g. Armenia).

An asterisk(*) indicates that a team does not play all of its home matches at that venue.

Current stadiums[edit]

Capacity of 25,000 or more[edit]

The "Category" column indicates whether the stadium has been designated by UEFA as capable of hosting Champions League or Europa League matches.
