Which are the largest and smallest stadia in the Premier League?
It is fairly well-known that Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United, which has a seating capacity of 74,879, is the largest stadium in the Premier League. Indeed, Old Trafford is second only to Wembley Stadium, which has a seating capacity of 90,000, in the list of the largest football stadia in the British Isles. It’s certainly the case that Manchester, with it’s vibrant nightlife and best payout casinos, has benefited greatly from the popularity and presence of Manchester United football club. As far as the Premier League is concerned, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which officially opened in April, 2019, is the second largest stadium, with a seating capacity of 62,062.
At the other end of the scale, Dean Court, a.k.a. the Vitality Stadium, the home of AFC Bournemouth, is veritably tiny by comparison and its seating capacity 11,364 makes it, far and way, the smallest stadium in the Premier League. The second smallest stadium in the Premier League, Turf Moor, home of Burnley FC, has a seating capacity of 21,944 but, to put that figure in perspective, the entire population of Burnley is in the region of 88,000, so the football stadium has capacity for 25% of the population. Remarkably, the record attendance at Turf Moor was 54,755, but that was in 1924, long before the days of the Premier League.
