Following Brexit What Are The Largest European Football Stadiums?
I am sorry I mentioned the B….. word and will promise to try to avoid using it again. I did wonder though, how the list of the Largest European Football Stadiums by capacity has changed since January 1st 2021. See I avoided it’s use this time. What are the biggest stadiums and which countries supply most grounds on the list. I was also interested to see how many UK stadiums fell off the list following the departure.
How Many British Football Stadiums Were In The Top 10 Before Brexit?
It was interesting to see the UK had 2 stadiums in the top 10 European grounds listed by capacity. The National football stadium, Wembley with 90,000 and Manchester United’s, Old Trafford with 74,140 both left the list. This then allowed The Millennium Stadium to creep up to number 10 in the list but then we had to remove that one too. Wembley and the Millennium Stadium are both National grounds though and do not have club football played at the venue. Of course this isn’t true if you include cup finals and knockout competitions.

It is interesting that both Germany and Spain both have 3 teams in the top 10 European stadiums. The Nou Camp is home to FC Barcelona and is the biggest club ground by a long way. It is noteworthy that even the biggest club ground in England Old Trafford, would only be 6th on this list. There are works taking place at Camp Nou to increase the capacity to around 105,000. The ground was built in 1957 and the club briefly considered moving but this was rejected in 2014. It was thought, a lack of funds was the main concern. We have a list of the English Premier League Stadiums and it is really interesting how they compare to the top 10 European stadiums.
