A total of 3,587,538 fans – making for an average of almost 69,000 per game - clicked through the turnstiles during the 1994 FIFA World Cup USA™.

Every one of those supporters helped set a new attendance record for the world’s greatest competition and, despite the subsequent expansion in the number of teams and matches, that record remains to this day.

The biggest crowd recorded in 1994 was unsurprisingly for the Final, with 94,164 turning out at the Rose Bowl to watch Brazil beat Italy on penalties after a goalless draw.
