The attendance record for a women’s sporting event has been broken at a college volleyball match in the United States.
A crowd of 92,003 watched Nebraska beat Omaha at Memorial Stadium, surpassing the 91,648 who watched Barcelona take on Wolfsburg in the 2022 UEFA Women’s Champions League game at the Nou Camp.
“It’s unbelievable,” Nebraska quarterback Andy Jackson told ESPN.
“Everyone was trying to stay isolated, but we were so excited. I’m grateful to be a part of that.”
“We had big dreams here,” Nebraska women’s volleyball coach John Cook told USA Today. (Rookie player) Kennedy Orr wrote me a note saying, “Coach, tonight the impossible is possible.” We did it. .
The previous record for a women’s sporting event in the United States was 90,185 people who were at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California to watch the United States’ victory over China in the 1999 Women’s World Cup Final.
