Club Stadiums With The Highest Capacity Across Europe's Top Five Leagues

Every club is required to have a stadium where they can host matches in the various competitions they engage themselves in.

These Stadiums are expected to meet some certain structural requirements as stated by the World football governing council.

One of the requirements is for them to have a structure where it can accommodate football fans, officials and other dignitaries during matches.

While some Stadiums have average capacities to accommodate fans at a time, others were built to house a larger audience.

Here are five stadiums owned by football clubs with the largest capacity in their various leagues.
