No, but as I already wrote, a comparison made with numbers is simply better than with photos

if this stadium really takes 120 000 people, its only because most parts of the stadium does not have seats, just concrete steps... ¨

it is because of stadiums like saltlake and mayday and those huge looking college stadiums with bleachers that you think yeah they have a high capacity, but is the actual structure equally impressive as the capacity in terms of size? and if they had plastic seats like modern stadiums , how much lower capacity would they have ? its so tricky to compare stadiums in " hugeness" when capacity has so much to do with seats / bleachers and seat width and such

therefore, the main question in this thread is imo which stadium would have the largest capacity in the world if every stadium would have 100 % equally sized plastic seats ?

It's the Mmbatho Stadium in South Africa. Built by a Russian firm, probably had a few vodkas beforehand.

They should host a couple of games at that stadium for the World Cup next year (especially if one of the newer stadium is not finished on time due to the workers strike).

Good question. I don't know if Estadia Azteca would meet your criteria. If not it would have to be one of the few all-seater stadiums on 100,000 capacity (i.e. MCG and the national stadiums of Malaysia or Indonesia.

Estadio Azteca is not all-seater.

Because it isn't, some sections have benches or just concrete seating. The most probable places for the largest individual seated grounds in the world would be in the US or maybe the MCG.

Maracanã without all-seats configuration has a capacity of 200,000

Brazil - Uruguay (1950 Fifa World Cup)
July 16th, 1950
Attendance: 199,854

Brazil - Paraguay
August 31st, 1969
Attendance: 183,341

Flamengo - Fluminense
December 15th, 1963
Attendance: 177,020

Flamengo - Vasco
April 4th, 1976
Attendance: 174,770

Nowadays, the capacity is about 100,000 (all-seats), but they put it officially 92,000 due to Brazilian law named Fan Statute, in portuguese "Estatuto do Torcedor" (in other words, safety is the reason)

How it is vs. How it was
