None of them will keep up with May Day, even if it's only 120,000-130,000 seats, the building footprint is somewhat bigger than just the stands, there is an 800m track up a few floors and other athletic facilities that wrap around it, and the roof "petals" extend past that touching down around the exterior.

it has an 800 meter track inside the stands ? wow thats sick ... but that eouldnt make sence , shouldnt the space inside the stands just be concourses and stairs and stuff for people to access the stands ? :S

ye i think mayday might have a bigger footprint than booth wembley and jerry world .... the question is if it has a bigger footprint than melbourne cricket ground ? cause i heard a lot of people in the mayday thread stating that " the circumference of the first row at mayday is huge "
but in the pictures of it i dont see any signs of it bieing larger than any other tracked stadium...... melbourne cricket ground however has plenty of distance between the stands and the track when it is in athletic mode.....

But May Day is just 60m high by the way, if I remember that correctly, which really isn't all too much if that number should be true.

I assembled very quickly a collage of photos from Google earth. I'll bring more stadiums in it soon. I set terrain to zero, all photos are taken from a height of 999 meters exactly! You can enrich it, but make those adjustments too:

so what's the criteria going to be? Volume? I imagine volume is only measured by what's inside the stands.

I'm pretty sure they won't, the pitches are tiny and most of the pro stadiums are 60-70000.

Its not like you can't save it and add your own photos, just as I said. And as far footprint is concerned, this was the biggest I could find. Apparently football stadiums with athletic track have the largest footprint

haha i was just gonna post a comparison between MCG and mayday but you beat me to it well yours is better anyway... on this pic may day really has a huge footprint , but we need to keep in mind that the roof streches outside of the stands as shown on this picture ... so its total footprint is alot larger than its efficent footprint..

Yea, and the roof isn't particularly high too, ANZ, Ataturk, Athens' have taller roofs, maybe Beijing's too(?)

EDIT: I wanted to put Wembley too, but my google earth isn't updated, it shows it still U/C

alot of stadiums dont look the size of their capacity, like mayday doesn't look 150 000 to me and alot of others agree on that ,just like Toyota stadium look bigger than its 40k capacity .. seat width and quallity , legroom and such has alot to do with this ..

SO maybe what we really want to know is : if you would put the same seats ( i was gonna say same legroom to but the legroom is so built into the stands , seats are more interchangable) in every stadium in the world, which stadium would have the highest capacity?

Capacity 80.000:

Maracana is almost the exact size of Beijing National!

But MayDay is really on a league of his own
