There are 32 NFL teams but only 30 NFL stadiums. Which stadiums are the biggest and smallest?

Biggest Capacity NFL Stadium

MetLife Stadium is the biggest NFL stadium by capacity: 82,500

MetLife Stadium opened in 2010 and is located five miles west of New York City in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It’s the home of the New York Giants and New York Jets.

MetLife Stadium cost $1.6 billion to build. At the time of its completion, it was the most expensive stadium ever built in the United States.

SoFi Stadium has the largest expandable capacity of any NFL stadium; it can fit up to 100,240 spectators, just a few hundred more than AT&T Stadium (100,000).

Soldier Field is the smallest NFL stadium by capacity: 61,500.

State Farm Stadium, host of Super Bowl LVII — and home to the BetMGM Sportsbook at State Farm Stadium — is the second-smallest standard-capacity stadium in the league. Attendance for the Super Bowl 57 was 67,827.
