There are 30 current NFL stadiums actively housing our favorite teams for our online sports betting dreams. These venues range from over ninety-five to five months old, large to small, and dump to state-of-the-art. The NFL is in constant pursuit of growth and is actively striving for the best fan experience imaginable.

MetLife Stadium is the largest NFL stadium in the league, with a capacity of 82,500. The giant space located five miles west of New York City serves as home to the New York Giants and New York Jets. With construction complete in 2010, it was the most expensive stadium ever built in the United States at $1.6 billion.

FedEx Field is home to the current Washington Football Team and their online betting faithful. It is considered the second largest stadium based on capacity at 82,000. From 2004 to 2010, it was the largest stadium in the country with a capacity of 91,000 but underwent a renovation in 2011-12, lowering that number.

SoFi Stadium and Allegiant Stadium are the two newest in the NFL, having opened in 2020. SoFi Stadium serves as home to the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers. Its base capacity is listed at 70,420 but is expandable to up to 100,240 for special events such as the Olympics, Super Bowl, or World Cup. No other venue in the NFL can expand up to that size.

Let’s take a look at all of the NFL stadiums from smallest to largest based on capacity. All capacity numbers are based on base numbers and do not take into account expandable numbers. The cost of construction is based on the era in which it was built.
