Makes you wonder how they managed that without half of them getting crushed to death. They certainly couldn't do that in the Maracana now, despite the basic structure of the stadium being the same. Officially it only holds 88,992 now (according to fussballtempel.net).

By the way, most of that crowd went home disappointed because Uruaguay won. An omen for 2014 perhaps...?

The first event held at the stadium was the FA Cup final on 28 April 1923 between Bolton Wanderers and West Ham United. This is known as the White Horse Final. Such was the eagerness of fans and casual observers to attend the final at the new national stadium that vast numbers of people crammed through the 104 turnstiles into the stadium, far exceeding its official 127,000 capacity. The crowds overflowed onto the pitch as there was no room on the terraces. Estimates of the number of fans in attendance range from 240,000 to well over 300,000. It is estimated that another 60,000 were locked outside the gates. The FA were forced to refund 10% of the total gate money to fans unable to reach the terraces. The White Horse Final has the highest ever unofficial "non-racing" sports attendance in the world, which is very unlikely to be broken in the near future. (This claim, however, is disputed, as the Maracana held (officially) 199,854 fans for the decisive match of the 1950 World Cup between Brazil and Uruguay.)

121, 696 at Melbourne's MCG for the 1970 AFL Grand Final between Carlton and Collingwood.
Rugby Union record is 109, 874 at Sydney's Stadium Australia in 2000.
The Rugby League record is as Spud said in the previous post and the Melbourne Olympics had 104,400 in 1956.

It's worth bearing in mind that press estimates of crowds sizes (anywhere, not just at football matches) are usually wildly inaccurate, and overstated. The more conservative estimates of under 150,000 are probably nearer the mark.

I see. Then it would be 66,308 at Olympic Stadium in Montreal on Sunday, November 23rd, 2008. The Calgary Stampeders beat the Montreal Alouettes 22-14 to win the Grey Cup. (I just noticed someone had posted it on the previous page.)

Two or three weeks ago, Saracens v Harlequins at Wembley attracted a world record crowd for a Rugby Union club match, with 83,761 there.


One report contrasted the game now with the start of the professional era in the 90s, when 5000 would have been a capacity crowd for the fixture.


It does have to be said that their typical crowds are nowhere near that figure. The league just arranges one or two fixtures a year at Wembley or Twickenham with the express intention of getting headline-grabbing crowds, as well as hopefully boosting the appeal of the game.
