Better take photos at a height of less than 1km, cause Google Earth changes and measures with a 10 meter accuracy your height after that mark.

You're right.. But You forgot it is the biggest modular athletic stadium in the world. (Because it's the only one )

About the Height of the roof : 46m (from the pitch)

About the surface area of roof (6 hectares), I know it is not the largest one, but maybe in the top 5 because it is much larger than its 80K seating bowl and the roof also covers a part of the running track :

The new Cowboys stadium might be close to the largest in terms of footprint, with the length from one end of the arches to the other end roughly a quarter of a mile (400 meters).

Also, with the exception of Jerry World of course, the largest US Football stadiums are not NFL stadiums, but old college stadiums. The University of Michigan's stadium, for instance, seats 100,000+ in a single tier stadium that has very little slope.

So Stade de France is not so small because the largest diameter of the roof is : 325 meters.....

Old Trafford is just hideous. An oversized ugly roof with a stadium attached to it.

H: 46 meters
Size of the roof : 325 x 282 meters.

Size of the seating bowl : 274 X 232 meters !

I really do like the Stade de France, but in comparison to others sadly it in fact is rather tiny:
Quote:
Rungnado 1st of May Stadium, Pyeongyang
The May Day stadium has 150,000 seats and a total floor space of more than 207,000m2.
This makes the MAY DAY Stadium the biggest stadium in the world! It's a comprehensive athletic and cultural base where varieties of athletic activities can be held including football games. The inner stadium floor area covers 25,000m2 including 14,000m2 of which its athletic field is artificially made and 8,300m2 of lawn. Vertical axis of stadium is 450m and horizontal axis 350m.The stadium has eight storeys and is more than 60 metres high from the ground to the roof. The 60 metre long canopy is enough to cover the section of the stands. The pent of the inner roof is 60 metres long and the outer roof 40m long. The 16 arch roofs link with one another like flower petals.

Well to be honest, May Day looks very cheap and cheaply made.

Apparently they're going to expand it even further...
Then again, they have about 2 months of free time to build on it, the Premiership plays non-stop from August-May.

Perhaps they should use the City of Manchester Stadium for one year and let the constructors have a whole year where they can properly rebuild the stadium.
But the loss of ticket revenue would be to big I suppose.

They've filled in those two corners since then, looks a lot better since.



And it didn't look weird at all. This is a weird stadium -

Old Trafford's three other stands are bigger than CoMS.
