Ligue 1 Stadiums: As seen from above
Ligue 1 is ranked fifth in Europe behind Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A but they have managed to attract a lot of star power recently, mainly just Paris Saint-Germain though.
Currently only 26 football stadiums have a capacity of 20,000 or more in France. Not that it is a standard but six out of the twenty Ligue 1 clubs have stadiums under that capacity. Still the average attendance of the league is 18,930 – which is still more than any of these six clubs can host.
Stade de France has the highest capacity of over 81,000 but no club plays regular football there – it is home to the French national team. Lille has the biggest capacity out of the Ligue 1 stadiums with over 50,000 at the Grand Stade Lille Metropole while AC Ajaccio has the smallest with just under 11,000 at the Stade Francois Coty.
