Largest stadium in the US I believe is the University of Michigan's which seats 107,501. Maracana Stadium in Brazil is the largest in the world. In the final game of the 1950 World Cup, the tournament for which the stadium was first built, a paying crowd of 172,772 turned out. But thousands more mobbed the gates which resulted in an overall total of 199,854, a world record crowd for a stadium sporting event (some reports stated that the crowd actually exceeded the 200,000 mark).
