it was Old Trafford at 65,000 then Millenium Stadium Cardiff 70,000 New wembley is 80,000+ and Old Trafford now the corners have been opened up is nearer 100,000. Thames AFC played in the football league from 1928 to 1932 at the 120,000 capacity West Ham Stadium, purposely built for Greyhound and Speedway Racing. Their average gate was 2,469. The stadium was demolished in the early 70s. New Brighton Tower F.C played in the Football League from 1897 to 1901. Their ground capacity was 80,000, but averaged gates of c. 1000.

Odsal Stadium, home of Bradford Bulls Rugby League Club, held a crowd of 102,569 on 5 May 1954.

Wembley is actually 90,000. Not 100,000+.and old trafford is around 75,000. So Wembley Stadium is The BIGGEST stadium in the world!!!!

Actually Wembley is not even close to being the largest stadium in the world, the Azadi stadium in Tehran curently holds 100,000- seated. Wembley is CURRENTLY the largest stadium in the UK as it is an all seater, but previously standing grounds have held more. The record in Britain is officially Hampden Park with 149,415 in 1937. (White Horse final does not count as no registered attendance. FYI after Wembley, Twickenham has the largest seated cappacity at approx 80,000... I know it's Rugby. Interestingly the Maracana Stadium in Brazil once held 200,000+ during a final against Uraguay. See

Actually, the Rungrado May Day Stadium in North Korea has a seating capacity of 150,000, and is the largest non-motorsport stadium in the world. Basically, no other stadium, whether football or bullfighting, even comes close!

1970 : attendance 136,505 European Cup Semi-Final : Celtic v Leeds United; Arguably the most memorable European Cup Final, Real Madrid v Eintracht Frankfurt, was held at Hampden in ...

M.E.N Area or 02 Arena

MEN holds 21,000

O2 holds 20,000

Definitely not the LG Arena where Dr Zakir Naik will be talking

According to various sources the O2 arena actually has a 23,000 capacity, which would make it the largest arena venue in the United Kingdom.
