the number one on a list: Jornalista Felipe Drummond, most know as "mineirinho".
today look like this:


so much space to fill with chairs, may get higher capacity, the record was 33.415 in 29/05/94

for the 2014 world cup will be all sited with unknow capacity
and will look like this:


and i think that the chairs should get even closer to the pith.

im not sure what the largest arena in the u.s is but it is not the mci(now verizon center) even after the 2009 renovations that lowered the capacity the united center in chicago is still bigger than the mci center and the united center has the most square footage of any arena in north america.

Mate, they might call themselves "Arena" but convention says they are Stadiums with roofs.

Arena's are more your Concert/Indoor sport venues which cater for nothing larger than Ice Hockey (Indoor athletics being a joke).

The two largest US arenas are Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY and Greensboro Coliseum in NC, each seating 23,500.

A joke, well maybe, but nevertheless numerous proper arenas can fit an indoor athletics track, and even a cycling track...At least that is the case at Bercy Arena in Paris for example :

Although this cycling track is not used much nowadays (last time was in 2000; especially due to the cost & time of transformation of Bercy into an indoor velodrome: They have to remove 3/4 of the tiers in the arena), it nevertheless was one of the main reason why Bercy was built, because track cycling has been very, very popular in France until recently (road cycling on the other hand still is very popular over here).
BTW, that's why most of large French stadiums were first of all & originally outdoor velodromes, e.g. Marseille, the old Parc des Princes, Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux, Lorient, Reims, Grenoble etc etc, not to mention the sadly famous Vél’ d'Hiv’ (Winter Vélodrome) which was the Paris large indoor "arena" from 1909 to 1959 year of its demolition. So the first purpose of Bercy, when it was built, was being the "new Vélodrome d'Hiver".




Here are some plans of several configurations at Bercy:


All stands used, (config. Circus/Volleyball/Basketball/Handball/Tennis) 14,524 seats:



First rows retracted/removed, (config. Hockey/Ice Sports) 14,353 seats:



Half of the lower tiers retracted/removed, (config. Equestrian competitions/Funboard/Indoor Football/Gymnastics) 13,583 seats:



All the lower tiers retracted/removed, (config. Motorsports/Jet Ski/Indoor Rugby) 12,315 seats:



A part of the intermediate tier + the lower tier removed, (config. Indoor Athletics) 8,659 seats
:

In yellow on this plan, We can see a part of the velo track since in the indoor athletics config. they have to remove the intermediate stand in the ends.


Unfortunately I didn't find a plan showing the whole track and the cycling configuration, but anyway it is almost the same as the Athletics one (minus the middle tier in the main stands).

Voilà !

That looks like an arena in name only. The word arena does pertain to a covered or enclosed space, but typically refers to basketball and hockey venues. Canada alone has 3 stadia that are covered and have capacity beyond 50,000 but they use the word stadium instead.

After poking around a bit, I would have to say this is not an arena or a stadium, but a church. The web site on Wikipedia takes you to the Philippine Church of Christ, without a word of information on the building. But the Wiki entry only says that the building can hold 50,000, not the seating area. The main floor is described as being able to hold not only religious services, but boxing, basketball and concerts. Basically everything other than the services is an afterthought for propaganda purposes.

The facility located near Manila, named the Philippine Arena, will be fitted with 50,000 seats and its domed roof will be nearly 36,000 square meters, making it the world’s largest domed arena,

its owned by the church organization, but it does not mean that its a church the church also owns a university and hospital,
this one is an arena and not a church..



Philippine arena will be a larger version (inside only) of First Direct Arena (formerly known as the Leeds Arena)

The only events that are guaranteed to happen here are weekly religious services. There are no plans to use this for the university basketball team, or any other team. This is a church, and does not belong in the stadium section.

your not even a member of that church, what makes you say that it wil be use for weekly religious services and its plans? and yes, it does not belong in the stadium section, because its an arena.
here in my country Philippines, we also have the Smart Araneta Coliseum http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_Araneta_Coliseum
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...as_by_capacity where sometimes it can be used for religious activities but it doesn't mean that its a church.. it's still an arena...
anyway, I don't want to argue about religion or whatever.. the thread is just about arena >15,000 I just want to share this. if you don't like it, that's fine it will still be the worlds largest arena in 2014 until someone builds bigger

Paris, Bercy Arena (14,000 seats in Hockey config.)

Here are 3 nice pictures taken during the three last French Ice Hockey Coupe de France finals, a game which is a great success in terms of attendance since 2007.
2007 was actually the year following the separation of the French Ice Hockey Federation from the French Ice Sports Federation and also, with this game, the year of the return of Ice Hockey at Bercy after a 19-year absence.


Ice Hockey, Coupe de France Final 2011 (Dragons de Rouen vs Ducs d'Angers) - Attendance: 13,364 (Sold out)



------

Ice Hockey, Coupe de France Final 2012 (Dragons de Rouen vs Ducs de Dijon) - Attendance: 13,362 (Sold out)



-----

Ice Hockey, Coupe de France Final 2013 (Ducs d'Angers vs Diables Rouges de Briançon) - Attendance: 13,354 (Sold out)

Bonus: A nice video of the 2012 final:
