The sitting capacity figures are for each stadium’s permanent total accommodation, including seating and any official standing areas.

Stadiums are sorted out in the list based on the biggest of these capacities. Note that this list does not include the race tracks, closed or inactive stadiums, or the figures attained from temporary spectator capacity.
