The following is a list of covered sports stadiums, ordered by capacity; that is the maximum number of spectators the stadium can accommodate for a sports event. This is intended to include only stadiums that are used for sports traditionally held outdoors. It is split into two sublists:
- Stadiums designed for field sports, such as baseball and any of a wide variety of football codes, and/or athletics (track and field).
- Tennis stadiums (a traditional outdoor sport, but with a much smaller playing area)
Only domed and retractable roof stadiums are included, i.e. stadiums that cover both spectators and playing field. Wembley Stadium in London, which seats 90,000 spectators, is not included as the roof can only be partially closed. The stadiums are divided into current stadiums, closed stadiums, and future stadiums (those currently under-construction and those planned for construction).
Closed and demolished stadiums
(All of these were domed)
