The World's Largest Sports Stadiums

This documentary, in the form of a Google Map, enables you to zoom in on the top twenty biggest sports stadiums in the world. You might think the biggest sports stadium is the home of a NFL football team or a FIFA soccer team. But you would be wrong. The biggest stadium in the world by capacity, at 150,000, is the home of the Grand Mass Gymnastics and Artistic Performance Arirang and the parade/shows celebrating Kim II-sung and North Korea. I am not promoting North Korea in any way, but the facts are the facts, North Korea has the largest sports stadium by capacity to date. Many of these stadiums are devoted to a single college football team, while others serve multiple venues.

These locations were determined by Wikipedia's List of Stadiums By Capacity.

You can view most of these stadiums from mid-field in this
Google Earth KML file if you turn on the Buildings Layer.
