The photograph taken from an aeroplane which is reproduced hardly gives an adequate idea of its size, for it is a large and imposing building which has been designed to provide, under cover, sitting accommodation for 25,000 persons, in ring seats for 10,000 persons and standing room for an additional 91,500, so it is capable of holding no fewer than 126,500 people, all of whom will have a practically uninterrupted view of the whole of the arena.
