China begins building world's largest football stadium

World's largest football stadium begins construction in China

Saturday 18th April 2020

Ground has been broken on a new football stadium in China which will be the world's largest football stadium when it is completed.

The new ground in Guangzhou will have a 100,000 capacity and be home to Guangzhou Evergrande when it is completed at the end of 2022.

Guangzhou are China's most successful club, having won the Chinese Super League 8 times in their history. They currently play at the 55,000 capacity Tianhe Stadium and averaged 45,000 for their home matches last season.

The new ground will cost in the region of £1.4bn and marks the start of a serious investment into stadiums in China with up to 5 new grounds planned in the next few years, all of which will have a capacity of between 80,000 and 100,000.
