And that's not even including Twickenham, which would also qualify (I think) if it were ever used for football.

I make the total future capacity of all stadiums listed to be c. 698000. No idea if that means anything to anyone, but it would be a useful metric if anyone wanted to compare stadium capacity with other cities.

The methodology: The stadium's main intended purpose is taken as being the stadium's actual capacity where the stadium is used for multiple sports/events. I.e. Wembley's capacity is taken as being 90000, as it's main function is to be a football stadium. Likewise, the Olympic stadium is taken as being 54000, as it will mainly be used as a football stadium, with athletics being the secondary use.

It is not just the stadiums but the actual history. London is the spiritual home of four global sports, football, rugby, cricket, tennis and London also hosts the pdc darts world championships.

We did this a couple of years back with only completed buildings - basically if you include the horse racing stadia like Ascot, London comes out top with about a million capacity.

As a south Londoner I'm not familiar with the Croydon Arena, unless it was demolished since the list was made.

There's a few that can be added, such as the ExCeL London, Allianz Park (Saracens) and Park View Road (Welling).
