List of American football stadiums by capacity

File:Panoramic Michigan Stadium.jpg
Michigan Stadium is the largest American football stadium.

The following is an incomplete list of current American football stadiums. The list contains the home stadiums of all 32 professional teams playing in the NFL as well as the largest stadiums used by college football teams in the NCAA. The United States is unique in that only two of its twenty largest stadiums are home to a professional team, the others being used for college games. The largest professional team stadium falls at number 16 on the list. Not included are several large stadiums used by teams in the now-defunct NFL Europa, as these were all built for and used mainly for association football, or Rogers Centre, located in Canada (although it does host occasional American football games). Currently all football stadiums with a capacity of 30,000 or more are included.

Stadiums are ordered by seating capacity. This is intended to represent the permanent fixed seating capacity, when the stadium is configured for football. Some stadiums can accommodate larger crowds when configured for other sports, or by using temporary seating or allowing standees.

Cost

In 2013, major sports stadiums cost several hundred million dollars or more. In densely populated areas, the sports team often spends the highest proportion in building a stadium. In less desirable areas, the cost is mostly borne by taxpayers. Judith Grant Long reported, "the general consensus amongst economists, is that [stadiums are] not a good investment, simply because they don’t create enough net economic benefits in the way of job creation or tax revenues to warrant the scale of the investment.”[31]
