5 Biggest Stadiums in the UK


English football remains the leading force of European football, so it is no surprise it is also home to some of the biggest and best stadiums in world football. This also comes as Liverpool have recently picked up the Premier league title, following a dominant season. They will now be looking to defend their title next season, and are already being supported to do so with the different paddy power promo code offers. But Manchester City will be expected to be much improved, and it sets up for a fascinating season next year. Anfield stadium is Liverpool's home, but this does not sit within the top five. Here we cover the top five biggest stadiums in the UK?

Emirates Stadium - 60,260

In at number five is Arsenal's Emirates Stadium. This opened back in July of 2006, following the side moving over from Highbury. The project was finished at a cost of £390 million and instantly put it as one of the biggest in the country. The highest attendance to date in the stadium was recorded back in 2007, when Arsenal hosted Manchester United with a capacity of 60,161.

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium - 62,062

The newest stadium on the list and now regarded as the most modern in the world is the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. It opened in April of 2019, following the move over from White Hart lane. This multi-purpose stadium has a capacity of 62,062, with the largest recorded attendance being 61,104. That was recorded with a match against Chelsea back in December of 2019.
