Sports are more popular and profitable than ever before. In recent years, both teams and franchise owners have used this profit to build much larger and more advanced sports venues around the world, unlike anything that we've ever seen before. From Construction Disputes, this infographic looks at the most expensive sports stadiums ever built around the world. The three most expensive stadiums are all current homes to teams in the National Football League, with the priciest being SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
As the home of both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers of the NFL, the stadium opened in 2020 and cost $5.5 billion to build. The second and third spots also go to NFL teams, as MetLife Stadium (Jets and Giants) in East Rutherford, New Jersey cost $1.7 billion to build, and the home of the Las Vegas Raiders (Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, NV) was $1.9 billion.
