2022 Will See The Completion Of The Largest Football Stadium In The World

20 April 2020

China’s most successful football club Guangzhou Evergrande has begun working on its goal to create the largest and arguably most creative football stadium in the world.

Worth $1.7 billion, the new Guangzhou Evergrande Football stadium’s design takes inspiration from the nickname of the city it’s being built in. 

Guangzhou is commonly referred to as the “Flower City” and for that reason Shanghai-based American designer Hasan Syed designed the stadium to resemble a Lotus flower.

The new football stadium’s most notable feature is that it will become the first football stadium with a capacity of 100,000 eclipsing that of the Camp Nou in Barcelona. 

Furthermore, it will have 16 VVIP private rooms, 152 VIP private rooms, a FIFA area, an athlete area, a media area, and a press room.

This majestic stadium is expected to be complete in 2022 and could potentially be the first of many massive Chinese football projects.
