NFL Stadium Capacity: Which are the biggest and smallest?

What is the capacity of each of the 30 NFL stadiums, and which are the smallest and the biggest when it comes to official numbers?

Around the NFL, the capacity of the stadiums varies greatly. While none of them would be considered small compared to many other professional sports stadiums, they can be dwarfed in size by college football stadiums. Let’s take a look at which NFL stadiums are the biggest and which rank among the smallest.

NFL stadium capacities for all 30 stadiums

The range in the size of NFL stadiums currently varies from just over 60,000 to 82,500. You might expect that the newer NFL stadiums in Las Vegas and Los Angeles might top the list in terms of capacity, but that is very much not the case.

When it comes to official listed capacity, the numbers are not always the complete picture. For example, AT&T Stadium can hold over 100,000 fans when the standing room is accounted for. However, the official capacity is 20,000 seats fewer. Let’s take a look at the top five biggest stadiums in terms of official listed capacity before looking at which stadiums have the smallest capacity.
