I got curious about Cobresal, so I looked them up here. They play in a 20,000 seat stadium, which is strange, because the town they play in (El Salvador, in the Atacama desert) only has 7,000 people. Green Bay and Saskatchewan have nothing on these guys.

Indeed, it is. This stadium was built in 1980 by the Chilean state copper company Codelco; then in 1985 the stadium was expanded to 20,000 because Cobresal qualified for the Copa Libertadores 1986 (this is the minimum capacity required for Stadiums in this tournament). The stadium is located in the town of El Salvador, a mining camp built by Codelco in the Atacama Desert. Currently has about 5,000 inhabitants.


Aerial view of El Salvador and the Estadio El Cobre, home of Cobresal, in the Atacama Desert, Chile.

Because the stadium capacity quadruples the population of the village of El Salvador is popularly known as "the world's largest stadium "

Impressive considering neither of those schools is anywhere near Dallas. That's a sellout for Toyota Stadium, yes?

North Dakota State fans bought 15,000 of those tickets. They have better fan following than many FBS schools. It also helps that they've been so dominant(4th straight national championship). Their fan support is a big reason why North Dakota State has hosted an ESPN College GameDay in each of the last two seasons.
