20: Bukit Jalil National Stadium — Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Nicknamed "The Swamp" as it is home to the Gators, the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium gives its college team a peculiar advantage. The stadium is built in a shallow sinkhole, below ground level. The stands are steep, providing fans with seats that are close to the action. These factors trap noise which provides great home support and an intimidating atmosphere for visiting teams.
Home team: England national football team (soccer).
Distinctive for the its structural arch, which supports around 75% of its roof load, the modern-day Wembley Stadium is the home to the England soccer team. It also hosts other major events like boxing world title fights, NFL games in London, and music concerts for artists like Foo Fighters, Oasis, and Take That.

2: Michigan Stadium — Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States
Home team: Michigan Wolverines (college football).
With a capacity close to 110,000, it's easy to see why the Michigan Stadium is known colloquially as "The Big House." Originally built in 1927 at a cost of $950,000, it has grown steadily from its initial capacity of 72,000, into the largest stadium in the US at 107,601.
Home team: North Korea national football team (soccer).*
