Average World Cup attendance is second highest ever

The record average attendance was set in the United States in 1994 at 68,991.

“We think that record will stay for quite some time due to the huge capacity of the stadiums in the U.S.” FIFA spokeswoman Delia Fischer told the daily briefing.

The total attendance after 60 matches with four still to play stands at 3,165,693, meaning an average of 98.3 per cent capacity across the tournament.

When the World Cup was played in Brazil in 1950, the 22 matches produced a total of 1,045,246 spectators at an average of 47,511 per game, a record that stood until the 32-match World Cup in England in 1966.-Reuters
