Humans have become more proficient at designing and building magnificent sporting arenas. Some of the stadiums in the world today are genuinely jaw-dropping. Below are some of the most impressive stadiums in the world based on their sizes and appearance.
Camp Nou (Barcelona, Spain)
With a capacity of 99,786, Camp Nou is the biggest stadium in Europe. It was built in the 1950s and boasted the vintage that new stadiums could never match. The stadium is the home to FC Barcelona, and it’s a brain-chain of Norman Foster. Its old-fashion with a modern touch makes it among the most impressive stadiums in the world.
Wembley (London, England)
Wembley is the second-largest stadium in Europe with a capacity of 90,000. Designed by HOK Sport and Foster and Partners, the stadium was opened in 2007. It has a partially retractable roof and a circumference of 1 km. It encloses 4m cubic meters under its roof and inside its walls, making it one of the biggest and most amazing stadiums in the world.
Soccer City (Johannesburg, South Africa)
Soccer City is the largest stadium in Africa. The stadium was previously known as FNB Stadium, but it received a major facelift to host the 2010 World Cup and renamed to Soccer City. The traditional African pottery inspired the design. The stadium is stimulated by a ring of lights that run around the bottom at night.
National Stadium (Kaohsiung, Taiwan)
With a capacity of 55,000, the National Stadium in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, has a spiral shape that evokes dragon-like imagery. The stadium uses solar power energy with solar panels covering the outer side of it. These panels generate enough power for the stadium operations.
