Listed below is each state’s largest football stadium(s).

Keep in mind that the posted capacities are official figures, but often teams/schools can find ways to fill stadiums beyond their capacity. If two stadiums had similar official capacities (within 1,000) both were listed.

For the purpose of this list, a football stadium is defined by a place that regularly hosts NFL, college football, or high school games.

Additional Info

  • Minnesota (Metrodome) and North Dakota (Fargodome) are the only states that have indoor venues for their largest football stadium.
  • Nine of the Southeastern Conference’s stadiums are classified as a state’s largest stadium(s): Bryant-Denny (AL), Razorback Stadium (AR), Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (FL), Sanford Stadium (GA), Commonwealth Stadium (KY), Tiger Stadium (LA), Vaught–Hemingway Stadium (MS), Williams-Brice Stadium (SC), and Neyland Stadium (TN). The SEC (with 14 schools) even rivals in the NFL in this category, as the pro circuit (with 32 teams) claims ten largest-in-the-state stadiums.
