6) FNB Stadium – Capacity: 95,000

The First National Bank Stadium frequently features on our lists. Not only is it the sixth largest stadium in the world but it is the largest in Africa, as well as the most expensive. The stadium is better known as Soccer City and is located on the outskirts of Johannesburg. It was one of many built for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.


5) Camp Nou – Capacity: 99,500

The Camp Nou was originally constructed in 1957 and is the largest stadium in Europe. Home to Catalan giants Barcelona, the ground has seen some of football’s greatest players grace the pitch. A 1980 remodelling of the stadium was funded by the club’s fans, who donated money to the development in return for having their names inscribed on the stadium’s bricks. The club this year unveiled a £495million redevelopment of the ground which would see the capacity rise to around 105,000.
