bump !



i think we can declare west stand on DKR stadium in Austin the single largest stand in the world ( not counting racetracks ) , atleast by physical size and height, and probably by capacity to . that stand has seats 70 meters above the field according to the " stadium height " thread , and when i meassured it on google earth i found that it is over 100 meters deep , from the back row to the front row !!! no other stadium i compared to was deeper than 85 meters in that way ( including Mayday, Camp Nou , penn state , Old Trafford , Ataturk.... )

if anyone finds a larger stand , prove me wrong, but i feel pretty sure on this one

Montreal Olympic Stadium? The concourse is so massive it has two subway stations: one at each end. The walls are massive and the stadium incorporates the tallest inclined structure in the world. I'd be surprised if this stadium wasn't the most massive, or close to it.

i think the most massive stadium was Sydney OLympic stadium-Telstra.And the stands there are just colossal.DKR is definetely the tallest at 65 m(i know this 4 a fact).The biggest volume must be that of a very large olympic stadium,and Sydney was just enormous.

yeah... the site is pretty big ... BUT... from those subway stations to the stadium it's literally a ******* LONG WAY!!

Station "Viau", is just in front of the "Star cité" movie theater (those green blocks u see in the bottom right corner)

Station "Pie-IX" is on the corner of Pie-IX av. and "Pierre de Coubertain" av...

in both cases it's a ling walk but the Viau station is closer.


this gives an idea of the distance you have to walk to get to the stadium from the PIE-IX station:

I'm guessing the new WC stadium in Brasilia maybe close to the largest, only just over 70K in capacity but the concourses are massive.

I'm more surprised that Malaysia fielded a sports team that many people bothered showing up to watch.

It was probably a pre-season tour game for an EPL team or something.

PS. What is that round thing on the roof of the Bird's Nest Stadium?

Warsaw EURO2012 stadium is just as big in terms of structural circumference as Beijing Olympic however it has an advantage as it has a retractable roof and also has a over 100 meter tall central hanging spire
