  • Old Trafford is the biggest soccer stadium in the Premier League.
  • The biggest soccer stadium in Europe is Camp Nou.
  • In general, NFL stadiums are larger than soccer stadiums.

Soccer is undoubtedly the most popular sport in Europe and the UK, and if you’re a fan of soccer betting, then you’ll know that La Liga and the EPL have some of the most impressive stadiums in the world.

Premier League clubs like West Ham and Tottenham have moved to new, larger stadiums, and Everton is in the process of building a new stadium, too. In addition, Anfield, Old Trafford, and St James’ Park are getting upgrades worth millions of dollars, all in a bid to meet the growing number of supporters that want to watch their favorite team play. 

In Europe, Barcelona plays at the biggest stadium, Camp Nou, while Borussia Dortmund has one of the most up-to-date and sophisticated soccer stadiums in Signal Iduna Park. 

Here’s how these stadiums compare to the largest NFL Stadiums.
