Rungrado 1st of May: The World’s Biggest Stadium

Contrary to what most people may think, the biggest stadium in the world isn’t located in a country with a great history of soccer, or even with a successful club. It’s not the Camp Nou, Anfield, Santiago Bernabeu, San Siro, or Old Trafford. Surprisingly, the world’s biggest stadium is the Rungrado 1st of May, built in just two years and a half in the center of Pyongyang, North Korea’s capital, and its name comes from the combination of Labor’s Day and the Taedong river. This stadium has a little over 30 years of history, as it was opened on May 1, 1989, and it can fit as much as 150.000 people standing (114.000 seated). It also has as much as 10 stories and 80 different entries.
