(35 votes)

The word 'stadium" comes from the Greek word 'stadion" which literally means "place where there are people." The world's largest known stadium is located precisely in Olympia, where they held the first Olympic games of ancient times (the year was 776 B.C.). Even though originally and strictly speaking, a stadium had to have a track and it held track and field events, currently a stadium is any infrastructure for sports that has rows of seats and a field in the middle. This ranking classifies all of the stadiums of the world, ordered by their seating capacity.
