What’s a Stadium?

A stadium (plural stadiums or stadia), is a place or venue for mostly outdoor sports, concerts, or other events and consists of a field or stage either partly or completely surrounded by a tiered structure designed to allow spectators to stand or sit and view the event.

The oldest known stadium in the entire world is the Stadium at Olympia in Greece, where the ancient Olympic Games were held from 776 BC. 

The Rungrado May Day Stadium is the largest stadium in the world. Its official crowd capacity is 150,000, though it is thought that the actual capacity of the venue is closer to 114,000, which still makes it the worldโ€™s biggest stadium by capacity.
