China Builds the World's Biggest Stadium and It's a Real Eye-Candy


China is a country known as one of the largest countries in the world by square kilometers. That's why it's no wonder that the country needs a large stadium that would be able to accommodate as many spectators as possible.

Considering the fact that football needs some publicity in the country, Chinese authorities decided to give a green light for constructing a state-of-the-art stadium. The project images show that the stadium will look spectacular by all means.

Besides looking amazing, it will be enormous, featuring 100,000 seats, making it the biggest football stadium in the world. Once it's finished it will host global football matches and sporting events attracting large corporate sponsorship deals and will feature large totalizators screens displaying the latest odds around the stadium.

If you are interested in more details regarding this new football venue, stay tuned.

Stadium's Characteristics

Barcelona's Camp Nou might soon lose the long-owned title of the world's biggest football stadium, seeing as how China has started the work on its major football venue project.

The stadium will be the trademark of the current Chinese Super League champions, Guangzhou Evergrande. From the latest news, we have discovered that the work on this 100,000-capacity football venue started a week ago.

Once it starts working, it will officially be the biggest football stadium in the world. But that stadium aims to impress in more than one way. Not only is it going to be the world's biggest stadium, it is very likely that it will also be considered one of the most beautiful stadiums ever built.

The project created by the architects contains images showing the final look of the site, which will resemble that of a lotus flower with the orange-colored exterior. The inspiration came from the nickname of Guangzhou — China's "Flower City".

The stadium will also be impressive from the inside — the score will be projected onto the ceiling and it will be perfectly visible to everyone, regardless of the side they are sitting on. On top of that, it will feature 16 VVIP and 152 VIP private rooms. There will also be an area for athletes, separate areas for media and press conferences, as well as a special FIFA area.

Eye-Catching Venue Opens in 2022

It is estimated that this breathtaking stadium will be open for visitors sometime in 2022, as well as that the cost of building the venue is somewhere around $1.7 billion. The provider of the funds will be Evergrande Real Estate Group, the majority shareholder in Guangzhou Evergrande.

As such a magnificent building should host important events, the plan remains that the Evergrande Stadium should host a competition like FIFA Club World Cup along with standard Super League matches.

In addition, in order to give football in China a significant push, Evergrande Group announced building a few more stadiums with similar capacity around China.

The president of Evergrande Real Estate Group, Xia Haijun, shared his excitement regarding the stadium and its influence on football and China as a country. He mentioned that he is sure that this stadium will be recognized around the world in the same way landmarks like Dubai's Burj Khalifa or the Sydney Opera House are.

If we are to judge by the images available to the public, we can expect an out-of-this-world venue everyone would want to pay a visit to.
