Nebraska volleyball set global women’s sports attendance record – video | Sport

Nebraska University’s volleyball team laid claim to the world record for largest attendance at a women’s sporting event, with 92,003 filling Memorial Stadium for their volleyball match against Omaha in Lincoln. The previous attendance record was 91,648, set for a Women’s Champions League football match when Barcelona defeated rivals Real Madrid 5-2 at the Camp Nou in 2022. Memorial Stadium’s official capacity is just over 85,000 for football, but that number was higher for this event because there were seats and standing room on the field.
