A stadium 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 even. This article details the largest stadiums in the Africa, ordered by their audience capacity. The capacity figures are for each stadium’s permanent total capacity, including seating and any official standing areas.
The capacity does include movable seating – used by multi-purpose stadiums to regularly convert the stadium for different sports, and retractable seating for safe standing, but excludes any temporary seating or standing, such as for concerts. Stadiums are sorted in the list based on the largest of these capacities. Note that this list does not include race tracks, closed or inactive stadiums, or figures attained from temporary spectator capacity.
