Where Are The Most Expensive Stadiums In The World?


Let's take a look at the largest football stadiums in the world that have played in some of the most important games in football history. Stadiums have topped the list of the world's most expensive stadiums, with a price tag of more than $2+ billion.

How much does SoFi Stadium cost? The new stadium recently finished in July of 2020 is by far the most expensive venue in NFL history, with an estimated cost of $5 billion. It will also be the most expensive stadium in the National Football League (NFL) history and the second most expensive in terms of construction costs. The stadium's cost will reach $2 billion by the end of the first year of operation, according to a Los Angeles Times report.   SoFi Stadium will host Super Bowl LVI in 2022, host the 2028 Olympics in Los Angeles, and host the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics.

Built-in 1998, Nissan Stadium in Japan cost $557 million and hosted the 2002 World Cup final. The massive Melbourne Cricket Ground cost $576 million (£1.4 billion).

 
The previous most expensive stadium in the world is Wembley Stadium in London, England, home to the English Premier League football team Tottenham Hotspur. The stadium has been rated as the most expensive stadium ever, but where does it stand on the list? Wembley Stadium cost more than $1.5 billion, which gives you an idea of how much it costs in terms of construction alone.  It opened in 2007 in Wembley, London, UK, and the stadium cost $1.6 billion to build.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium is located in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and is home to the Atlanta Falcons football team. According to a report in the New York Times, the cost of building this fantastic stadium was about $1.2 billion, with a total investment of more than $2.5 billion.
 
Located in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan, it is home to the Japan Football League (J-League), the Tokyo Blue Bombers.
 
Built-in 1999, Nissan Stadium International Stadium in Yokohama is a 90,000-seat stadium with a capacity of 62,303, the second-largest stadium in Japan, and the third-largest in the world. This venue may not be the best memory for the English but it is one of the finest. It is not a minor event and is home to the Tokyo Blue Bombers, the Japanese Football League, which has three stadiums, each with its own stadium, all of which have over 90,000 seats.
 
Krestovsky Stadium is the second-largest stadium in Russia and the third-largest in the world with a capacity of 90,000.
 
It is indeed a great thrill to watch a game in this stadium and here is a video of what you may have seen on the ACIS tour. Metlife Stadium opened in 2008 as the new home of the New York Giants and New Jersey Devils. It's a world-class stadium for NFL games and it beats all the other stadiums that it hosts. MetLife Stadium is the most expensive stadium in the world, averaging $1.5 million per game to host the annual event.
 
We will look at the 10 most expensive stadiums that have been built and what has become of the expensive stadium over the last 10 years in terms of cost.

The first non-NFL stadium on the list is New York City's Yankee Stadium, which cost $1.5 billion to complete and opened in 2009. At the time of construction, it was the most expensive stadium ever built and was privately funded by the Jets, Giants, and MetLife Stadium Company.
 
The title goes to London's new and improved Wembley Stadium, which opened in 2006 and cost a staggering $1.5 billion. Named after the Premier League team that plays there, the venue cost an estimated $2.6 billion, or $500 million more than Yankee Stadium in New York City.
 
Completed in 2010, the new stadium is the largest NFL dome-less stadium currently known as MetLife Stadium. The 65,303-seat stadium is far outpaced by its rivals in size and capacity, but the on-field stadium is also the pride of the team's owners
 
It stands to reason that our beloved Dallas Cowboys would play in one of the most expensive stadiums in the world, with a price tag of over $1.5 billion.   
 
It is the most expensive stadium in the world to be awarded the title and it is a testament to the quality of its construction and design. With its domed roof and unique design, it is no surprise that Melbourne's AAMI Park was crowned the "most iconic stadium in the world" at the 2012 Stadium World Congress Awards. Since its opening, the stadium has raced to the opening and been awarded the distinction of being the "top-grossing stadium in the world."
