The Big House Gets Bigger

After $226M in renovations, Michigan Stadium has become the nation's largest sporting arena. A comparison of its new seating capacity:
For some context, 109,901 people will make the stadium the seventh-largest city in Michigan on game days (passing up Ann Arbor, ironically), and is significantly larger than the largest city in Delaware, Maine, Montana, New Hampshire or North Dakota. The combined populations of the largest cities in West Virginia (Charleston, 53,421) and Wyoming (Cheyenne, 55,362) couldn't quite fill it.
Michigan Stadium is now the third-largest in the world behind arenas in North Korea and India.
