He's joking about the lost city of Atlantis.

Anyway, why is the Brazilian attendance being counted as fact when it previously stated as not being so earlier in this thread? I thought it was official attendance and not estimates.

One thing I know for sure is that over 400 people were killed in a crush in the early 1980s at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium and it was covered up to the extent even the players playing that night had no idea it occured. The Soviet officials at that time covered the whole event up, threatening the families of the fallen to keep quiet.

The greatest tragedy in a stadium was in Moscow.

Largest crowds were at Stadio Circus Maximus in Rome.

Now seriously -- the Philippines' might be that "Thrilla in Manila" (the Ali - Foreman?) fight. I think that was around 1974. The Araneta Coliseum there normally holds 15,000. But I don't know what it is in Boxing configuration.

In fact, as sercan said, the number 199,854 does not sound like it's estimated. But I didn't find any official sources acusing how they count that nunber. In Brazil x Uruguai, at least 173.000 people were in the stadium.(those paid tickets). And lots of people entered for free. The 183.000 record is the official record for paying people.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway had already received half a million people, so I think this beats all others.

well, it's really a modern-day Circus Maximus. And that's why they are called raceways rather than stadia or arena. I know it's I say potato, you say poteytoe...but sercan started this thread.

I guess if someone else started another thread to allow for raceways, etc., then he would have the moral prerogative to dictate the new terms!!

Anyway, car-racing is such a stupid, environment-raping activity that I wish it would be banned.

I've seen a handful of people claim Bristol doesn't qualify as a stadium because it has a racing track. It clearly is a stadium and should be the US attendance record of 160,000.

This isn't a stadium, it has a track.



But now it is a stadium!



It's not my thread and Sercan can include what he likes. I just don't understand why Bristol isn't a stadium. I still love the thread btw .

Well if they had gone ahead and held a football game there like they were going to would people consider it then?

And yes its stupid, but it brings in soooooo much money its ridiculous. probably because it has more sponsors than all the other sports combined.

And for me, its more like i say potato, you say pahtahtoe

Racetrakcs would be unfair IMO, because they have a bigger infield.
Itls like adding arenas into the list

~ all stadiums have got the same infield measures
