Chinese city of Guangzhou will be able to boast with world’s largest soccer stadium.
Guangzhou Evergrande announced that work has began on an eye-catching, 100,000-seater stadium, which would be the largest football stadium in the world. A breaking ground ceremony was held in Guangzhou City last week.
Designed in a lotus flower shape, the stadium is scheduled to cost $1.7 billion (12 billion yuan) and to be completed by the end of 2022.
According to Chinese state media, the stadium’s capacity would surpass Camp Nou. It will house 16 VVIP private suits, 152 VIP suites, an exclusive FIFA area, and several infrastructurally boggling spaces within it.
The development of the sporting complex comes at a time when stadiums around the world have halted activities due to the coronavirus spread.
