FIFA U17 WC : India breaks record of most spectators & number of goals
India creates a world record while hosting the FIFA U-17 WC. The total number of spectators, who turned up at the six host venues across the country is now 1,239,100 which has now passed 12,30,976 set in the first edition of the tournament in China in 1985. The 2011 edition in Mexico had also attracted a total of 10,02,314 spectators to be the third to have more than one million attendance in the tournament history. Kolkata’s Salt Lake Stadium has the highest attendance per match. The venue has so far logged a total of 4,85,693 spectators from nine games, at a staggering average of 53,965 per match. The stadium has a total capacity of 66.600. After three weeks of high intensity and top quality football, only England and Spain remain in contention for the top honour. And both sides will be seeking their maiden title when they come out in front of the full-capacity 66,000-odd crowd at the Salt Lake Stadium on Saturday.
