List of covered stadiums by capacity

For indoor arenas, see List of indoor arenas by capacity.

The following is a list of covered sports stadiums, ordered by capacity; that is the maximum number of spectators the stadium can accommodate for a sports event. This is intended to include only stadiums that are used for sports traditionally held outdoors. It is split into two sublists:

  • Stadiums designed for field sports, such as baseball and any of a wide variety of football codes.
  • Tennis stadiums (a traditional outdoor sport, but with a much smaller playing area)

Only domed and retractable roof stadiums are included, i.e. stadiums that cover both spectators and playing field. The stadiums are divided into current stadiums, closed stadiums, and stadiums currently under construction.

Indoor arenas should not be included on this list as there is a separate list for them.
