This list of closed stadiums by capacity shows demolished, unused, or otherwise closed sports stadiums ordered by their capacity, that is the maximum number of spectators that the stadium could accommodate seated. All stadiums that had a capacity at the time of closing of 25,000 or greater are included.
Most of the largest stadiums were used for football (soccer) or American football. However, some high capacity venues were used for baseball, cricket, Gaelic games, rugby union, rugby league, Australian rules football and Canadian football. Many stadiums had a running track around the perimeter of the pitch allowing them to be used for athletics.
- 56,000 with individual seats.
- As originally planned, the stadium was reconfigured into the baseball-specific Turner Field, and served in that role from 1997 to 2016. After the Atlanta Braves moved to the venue now known as Truist Park for the 2017 season, Turner Field was purchased by Georgia State University, which reconfigured the facility a second time into the venue now known as Center Parc Stadium.
- The stadium was closed in 2000 once Docklands Stadium opened, and was almost completely demolished in 2002. The main grandstand and oval, listed on the Victorian Heritage Register, still stand; capacity is now 2,000. Hawthorn Football Club continue to use Waverley Park for their offices and training facilities.
- The pedestrian ramp system and west upper deck of the stadium remain standing as part of TIAA Bank Field; the remainder was demolished.
- The original Kezar Stadium was demolished in 1989. A new Kezar Stadium, with a capacity of 10,000, was opened on the same site in 1990.
- Much of the playing surface was reused for Helfaer Field, a youth baseball park, with the remainder of the stadium demolished.
- The fate of this stadium is complex. The name "Cardiff Arms Park" is today applied to a rugby ground adjacent to the current Millennium Stadium. The South Stand of the current Arms Park is physically attached to the 1970 North Stand of the former National Stadium that stood on the site. The North Stand today forms what is colloquially called "Glanmor's Gap" in Millennium Stadium.
- Reconfigured into the venue now known as Center Parc Stadium for American football.
- This venue, locally known as Old Cardinal Stadium to distinguish it from the current Cardinal Stadium (originally Papa John's Cardinal Stadium) on the University of Louisville campus, only saw sporadic use after its closure in 2005. The stands were closed in 2013 and partially demolished in 2014, with full demolition following in 2019.
- The pavilion grandstand at the end of the right field foul line remains standing as the core of today's Nickerson Field..
