i just noticed something interesting .. the huge lower tire clearly has plastic chairs with backrest .. but the upper tire ? it looks like it has blue plastic chairs without backrest...
I think so.

I also think the single tier stand is temporary :



this is the same stand with two levels.



Bad quality picture from inside:

Sorry, but i am always cautious with capacity and attendances from "propaganda" countries.
Capacity of the Kim Il-Sung Stadium was written as 75,000 some years ago.
But now its 50k. Which could be true, because as far i know the antional team plays here (FIFA?!)

All in all i think we will never knew the real capacity.
Maybe 25-50 years. Currently it still sounds too "political" to me.

Bukit Jalil has got 74-75 rows
Berlin 73 rows
Also, don't forget that the 89th and 90th rows will have a lot more seats than the 73rd, 74th and 75th, so it's not just a case of scaling up...

yeah you are probably right about that stand bieing temporary ... on the other hand , isnt mass games pretty much the only thibng they do in that stadium so maybe the temporary stand has become permanent ... it would still be awesome to see how the temporary stand looks when its not filled with slaves...ahum people ...

and this rases many more questions about this stadium ... is the 150 000 capacity including thhe " temporary stand " ( wich must have a HUUUUGE capacity since there seems to be no alleys or anything on it just packed rows of people ) and the two tire bowl except for the part of the 2 tire bowl that is covered by the temporary stand , OR do you think the 150 000 capacity is the entire 2 tire bowl , when the temporary stand is not there ? and does anyone know how the stadium looked during that 190 000 wrestling event ? was the temporary stand there then ?

You're certainly right.

I don't Know (I think the 150,000 cap. is without the temporary tier).
All that I know is during the era of Kim il sung (till 1994) the temporary stand was not there as we can see on old pics.
This stand is used for the "Arirang Festival" (2002, 2005, 2007) and it's filled by 25,000 to 30,000 "Pixel Children" from 13 to 15 years old.

During these "festivals", especially in 2002 & 2007, they invited many artists from France, Italia, Germany & USA and tourists from everywhere are "allowed" in the country (which seems to be beautifull).

Anyway that's why for the documentary from Canal+, the two journalists said they were actors in vacations.

The Rungnado Stadium is a great stadium, but it has no individual seating which could have been installed when the stadium was built. All stadiums without individual seating are boring.

This Stand is made for their mass-game shows.

no doubt this thing is massive
from some of the pics on this thread (in particular this post https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...4&postcount=38) the bottom tier doesn't look as if it could be much smaller than something like the rose bowl or the luzhniki stadium and thats why i think 150,000 can't be far off the amount of seats in the stands

and isn't it
PYONGYANG - Rungrado 1st of May Stadium (150,000)
instead of
PYEONGYANG - Rungnado 1st of May Stadium (150,000)

I thought that maybe, but i dont think its nearly as big as the Rose Bowl. Not even close. Look at this pic.



look at the people in the stands next to the "2008". At this angle, the stand doesnt look that big at all.

Earlier in the thread, it was estimated to have around 90 rows all the way around. The Rose Bowl has 77 all the way around and has a capacity of 91,136. Do you really think that the addition of those 13 rows can account for 59,000 seats? I don't believe it.

http://uclabruins.cstv.com/genrel/062300aaa.html

Or, even better, Michigan Stadium, which has a listed capacity of 106,201 has 92 continuous rows plus 6 in each endzone. I'm sorry, but I just don't see May Day Stadium having a capacity of 150,000. If I had to guess, I would have to think somewhere in the 110,000 range, if that.

Given that it has an athletics track which would make the diameter larger, it's possible.

Can you imagine a 60k seat stadium with only 13 rows?

People, it has a very big diameter already from the first rows, like any other stadium with football pitch (I don't mean handegg) and athletic track around it. And don't forget the higher you get on the tier, the more seats you have.
