Oh I love this board... I mean, we practically cleared that topic on page 1. That's why discussions take up to 600 posts. I'm still waiting for another Spurs vs. Arsenal vs. ManU vs. Chelsea battle in here.

Rose Bowl was already mentioned there. And it is clear, that there is at least one stadium with a bigger tier.

I guess it must be Bristol, concerning total capacity... and Michigan stadium could have more rows but is smaller in capacity.

Texas Motor Speedway's single tier grandstand is larger than Bristol's single tier bowl.

Texas Motor Speedway: 154,861
Bristol Motor Speedway: 147,000

I was thinking of Bristol, but figured that certain forumers would state that Race Tracks are not sports facilities as auto racing is not a sport!
Does not Martinsville have a huge stand in one end section?

I personally would never agree with that statement, for good reasons.
I think that discussion would lead too far and is a matter of personal taste.
Despite that: The topic is "biggest tier", that could be any stadium-like structure with people on it.

Yeah I agree.
Texas grandstand may be bigger capacity wise but which is taller? I would say Bristol is.

Here is your winner!

Bristol, Tennessee 167000 seats on a half mile oval. Anyone have any info on how tall these stands are?

I'm talking about single tiers. Bristol is clearly not one big 167,000 single tier. You can see that the end stand is seperate and there is also a second tier. CBS Sportsline lists the grandstand(a single tier that covers 3/4 of the bowl) as 147,000. The grandstand at Daytona is actually listed over 200,000 as is Indianapolis, but they have two tiers. The total capacity for Texas Motor Speedway is well over 200,000, but the main grandstand is listed by CBS Sportsline at 154,861. There's also a huge grandstand on the backstretch. As for which is taller, just look at the pics. TMS is likely taller too. Bristol looks taller because its compact, but look at the pic and how small the cars look in comparison to the TMS stand.

rantanamo seeing how as "thesmallprint" is the originator of this thread, it should be his definition of the largest single tier. As for Bristol not being a continous tier have you ever been their? There is no gap between any of the stands.

So once again THE WINNER!

Yes, I've been there, and Kansas and Kentucky and Texas. Hope to get to Talladega soon. That end is seperate and is raised a bit from the rest of the bowl. The rest of the stand is what seats 147,000. Even it is a piecemeal. That end totally has its own entrances.

After looking at the origination of the thread, the answer would be confusing. Stand on one side that includes all tiers? Single tier? I'm confused. Daytona's front tri-oval stand seats 167,000. I didn't include it because it has 3 tiers.

How on earth can the Südtribüne be the biggest tier when it's only one end of a stadium, and stadia like the Rose Bowl, Michigan Stadium etc. have a tier that wraps all the way around the pitch?!

If the question was about the deepest tier, then the Südtribüne might be in with a shout, though I'd throw in the big shallow end stand (East Stand) at Eden Park in Auckland, which seems to go back forever...
