When discussing the biggest soccer stadiums in the United States it is important to distinguish between those used regularly to stage soccer matches and others that have occasionally been used for soccer. The Rose Bowl is a good example and this stadium was used during the 1994 World Cup finals. It has a capacity of over 90,000 and that makes it one of the largest stadiums used for soccer in the US.
The AT&T Stadium is best known as the home of NFL team Dallas Cowboys and has a capacity of 105,000. The stadium has hosted soccer matches, including the CONCACAF Gold Cup, World Football Challenge, and International Champions Cup, with some games seeing over 80,000 fans. However, there are plenty of stadiums in the United States that are being used for soccer on a regular basis, one of which is the recently constructed Exploria Stadium.
The Exploria Stadium is the home of Orlando City SC and opened in 2017. It has a capacity of 25,500 people and while this may not be as big some of the other soccer stadiums in the United States, it makes for a great atmosphere during Major League Soccer games. As sports betting could be on its way to Florida, we expect to see many fans attending the Exploria Stadium having a wager and backing their team to win.
Another of the recent additions in Florida is the DRV PNK Stadium and the 18,000 capacity stadium is located in Fort Lauderdale. As a soccer-specific stadium, it is the home of Inter Miami CF and Florida now have two dedicated soccer stadiums.
In terms of the biggest capacity soccer stadium in the US, we turn to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Home of Atlanta United FC, this stadium has a capacity of over 70,000 and has seen some huge attendances for soccer games. Atlanta United hosted the Portland Timbers in the 2018 MLS Cup final and over 70,000 fans watched the game inside the Mercedes-Benz Stadium as the hosts went on to win the MLS championship.
The Nissan Stadium is another huge stadium in the United States to host regular soccer games. Between 2020 and 2022, Nissan Stadium is the home field of Nashville SC but they are soon expected to move to a 27,500-seat soccer-specific stadium at the Nashville Fairgrounds. Seattle Sounders FC are another soccer team to share a stadium with an NFL team and they play their home games at Lumen Field. The stadium usually has a capacity of 37,000 for most MLS games but this is often increased for important games, such as the 3–0 win over the Portland Timbers in 2012 that attracted a crowd of 66,452 fans.
Some of other significant soccer stadiums in the United States include Soldier Field, home of Chicago Fire FC, Yankee Stadium, home of New York City FC, BC Place, home of Vancouver Whitecaps FC, BMO Field, home of Toronto FC, Dignity Health Sports Park, home of LA Galaxy, and TQL Stadium, a soccer-specific stadium and home of FC Cincinnati.
