Rungrado 1st of May Stadium, 1989

The largest stadium in the world is Pyongyang, North Korea’s Rungrado 1st of May Stadium. Completed on September 8th, 1989, it has a capacity for 114,000 people. Similarly to most large stadiums worldwide, it can be configured to accommodate other sporting events/concerts/other internal events as well. The stadium is the venue for some major international athletic or cultural events including sports competitions and concerts by famous artists.

The Rungrado 1st of May Stadium was built for Kim Il Sung’s 70th birthday party in 1989 and has since been used for all types of events. If you happen to be planning on attending a game or event there soon, just dress warmly! One thing that stands out about this giant arena is its unusual four-pitch format for simultaneous games with six playing surfaces adjoining.

The largest football stadiums hosted parties for some of FIFA’s best players including Pele and Diego Maradona as well as Kaka Henry and Ronaldo.
