These are the largest stadiums in the United Kingdom

The late Victorian era in the United Kingdom saw a surge of popularity for sports, so the country got its first modern stadium in 1872 – Lansdowne Road Stadium. In the years that followed, many more stadiums were built.

Here are the 10 largest stadiums in the United Kingdom.

Wembley Stadium

Construction works for Wembley Stadium began in 2003 and ended in 2007, replacing the original Wembley Stadium which had been built in 1923. It is occupied by the England national football team and can host 90,000 football fans. The famous stadium hosted the UEFA Champions League Finals in 2011 and 2013, as well as concerts from popular bands such as Muse, Green Day or Coldplay.

Twickenham Stadium

Destined for rugby games, this stadium was built between 1907 and 1909 and has a capacity of 82,000. It hosts almost all games of the England national rugby union team, as well as the yearly London tournaments of the World Rugby Sevens Series and various significant events, such as The Varsity Match which pits Oxford and Cambridge in rugby games.
