Guangzhou Evergrande Start Work On Insane 100,000 Capacity Stadium

Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande have started work on a stunning new 100,000 capacity stadium.

The stadium, which will become the largest football-only stadium in the world, is to cost a whopping $1.7 billion and is set to be completed by 2022.

Construction on the Lotus Flower shaped design began on 16 April and if it looks anything close to the pictures being shared around, then Evergrande will have a unique incredible arena as their new home ground.

It will surpass Barcelona's iconic Nou Camp, though it will only be temporarily as the Blaugrana are increasing the capacity to 105,000 as part of the ground's expansion.

The new state-of-the-art, 150,000 square foot sports complex is being built with the hope that it will be host for the opening ceremony for the 2023 Asian games.

Two-time AFC Champions League winners Evergrande currently average around 50,000 supporters for home games.
