I've always believed it to be in the 100,000 club but a quick look on Wikipedia shows its capacity to be 87,411 (although Wikipedia isn't always right!)

That makes two of us... The 100 000 might have been Sirrajuddin ibni al Marhum's propaganda

from the off page

http://www.ksn.com.my/v_nationalstadium.asp

its always with asian stadiums
best example is Mayday
Mayday is IMO a 90.000-100.000 seater stadium
150.000 is maybe the record

its like saying Bernabeu capacity is 130.000
or do you believe that
Yuba Bharati Krirangan (Saltlake) is a 120.000 seater
http://www.fussballtempel.net/afc/IND/Saltlake.html

or
Stadion Utama Gelora Bung Karno (Utama Senayan), Jakarta is 100.000 seater
http://www.fussballtempel.net/afc/IDN/Bung_Karno.html

by time we will learn the exact capacity
some years ago Rajamangala Stadium was listed as a 80.000 seater stadium
But it has got a capacity of "only" 65.000

Dear Sercan,

I nearly agree with you on these points, but I still have some little comments. Generally we can say that security and comfort standards are not everywhere the same...

As there are big and luxurios VIP boxes as you can see on the official homepage of the stadium it would be very interesting to know how much their capacity is. I sent already several e-mails to the Stadium Management but didn't receive any reply unfortunately.

I agree with you that there aren't 150.000 seats. That's why I put this number in red on my site. The North Korean travelling agencies and other organisations claim every time this number. But I think it can only be reached by counting also people on the pitch and running track. After counting the number of rows on diverse photos an taking into account that there is not the same comfort standards as in modern stadiums in Europe or America, I think that 110.000-115.000 is a realistic number.

Also on this I have some doubts, but upon request the East Bengal Football Association replied to me that this stadium has 120.000 seated capacity - What do you want to reply? I also believe, even by taking in account that there are only very little individual seats installed, that the capacity of 120.000 can only be reached by letting enter the crowd with a non-existing level of security. By respecting modern security standards it would perhaps not make more than a 80.000-90.000 capacity.

The 100.000 seemed to be correct when there were no individual seats installed on the upper tier. But now AFC informs that after renovation for AFC Cup 2007 and extending VIP areas the capacity will be 81.000 which looks very realistic to me.

I fully agree ...

There is just something coming to my mind to illustrate things like these. A nice example (even if it is the most extreme I know and I am sure Saltlake stadium wouldn't be so extreme) is the national stadium of Cameroon in Yaoundé: Stade Omnisport Ahmadou Ahidjo. This stadium was listed at the end of the '90s as a 90.000 capacity stadium. God knows how they did not to have hundreds of deaths at every match. Around 2003 they reduced the capacity for security reasons under pressure of FIFA to 52.000 (officialy all seated even if no individual seats were installed except on the VIP balcony, but seats on concrete step are also seats) for international matches, but saying that for championship matches 80.000 tickets can be sold. So this clearly means the 80.000 capacity was nearly everyone standing.
But FIFA insisted and last year they had to (as they didn't want or didn't have money to install indidvidual seats) paint numbered seating places on the concrete steps and designate exit ways and some other basic security things. And do you know what now the new official (after FIFA checks) all-seated capacity is? An unbelievable 38.720!!!

So always take into account these kind of issues when comparing stadiums all around the world.
