Chinese Super League football club Guangzhou Evergrande has started work on a landmark 100,000-seat home stadium. Club owner Evergrande, the property developer, is planning to build two more 80,000-seat stadiums elsewhere in China.

Guangzhou's new home stadium has a spectacular lotus leaf-shaped design, is estimated to be costing RMB12bn (€1.56bn/$1.6bn), and when complete in 2022 will be bigger than FC Barcelona's Camp Nou.
