Salt Lake Stadium biggest one in the world?

Is it right that the biggest Football Stadium of the world is the Salt Lake Stadium in India with a capacity of 120.000? Because the May Day isn't a Football Stadium but for cultural events and Maracana has today "only" a capacity of 103.000. So is that right?

So I'm right cause the Czech Stadium isn't for football games and the May Day Stadium is only for cultural events. So the Salt Lake Stadium is the biggest Football Stadium in the world.
