In the Ticketgum study, MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford takes the crown as the best stadium in North America.

It's also a destination for top entertainment acts such as Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran.
The 82,500-seat stadium is currently boasting a 4.5 Google rating. The online attention that MetLife receives really moved the venue up the rankings, according to Ticketgum. The stadium sees a monthly search volume of 178,000.
In Ticketgum's ranking of the best stadiums in the world, MetLife comes in at No. 4. The No. 1 stadium is Mineirão in Brazil, No. 2 is Celtic Park in Scotland, and No. 3 is Wembley Stadium in London.
