Picture of the Day: The Largest US Soccer Crowd Ever
A friendly between Manchester United and Real Madrid this past Saturday set the US attendance record for a soccer match with an official tally of 109,318 fans. The record-breaking match took place at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan, commonly known as ‘The Big House’. The crowd broke the previous record of 101,799 which was set at the Rose Bowl for the 1984 Olympic final.
Although the match was just a showcase and statistically irrelevant, Man U would go on to win by a score of 3-1. [source]
