Oops, you're right. 100,012 actually.

I'll put in the Boxing Day Test as well, and leave it for somebody to find a higher documented example. I nearly had to ask what date it was.

Rugby Union: 83,418 - Australia v New Zealand, ANZ Stadium, 7 August 2004 (This may be overtaken in a couple of weeks with the Springboks v All Blacks at Soccer City).

That'd almost certainly get 90,000.

I wouldn't mind if MLB sent an exhibition game down to Australia to see with we can get the record back. Given the right promotion, Victorians will make it their duty to attend.

The Soccer City game?
Hopefully, that would be awesome. I seriously doubt that SANZAR are going to cover seating like FIFA, so if Soweto is excited about hosting the Boks and the biggest brand in Rugby "those blasted All Blacks" they should nudge 90 000.

The Wallabies managed 109,874 in 2000 and 107,042 in 1999 at Stadium Australia, and 90,119 in 1997 at the G, but those are all outside the scope of my question.

The highest attendance I can find in the Northern Hemisphere this century is 81,601 for the 2009 Guinness Premiership Final, so that 2004 Bledisloe makes the list, for now. I'm guessing in 2001 they only just managed to get that year's phase of work completed in time for the NRL Grand Final (I remember one end being a building site for the 3rd Lions Test).

Going against what the topic creator wanted, can't help but put the highest attended football match of all time:

199,854 - Brazil vs Uruguay - 1950 WC final.

As for this century, yeah as you said probably the Azteca, which holds 105,000 I think.
