Largest Ever Crowd At A Soccer Game Between Two Club Sides

Date of Record: 24/07/2013

Inside the MCG, a crowd of 95,446 witnessed history as Liverpool won their first match on Australian soil against a gallant Melbourne Victory.

The crowd was the biggest Liverpool had ever played before despite dominating the world game in the 1980s and playing at some of the biggest stadiums in the world.

More than 10,000 overseas and interstate tourists were among the delighted crowd that transformed the MCG into Reds heaven in an entertaining foreign friendly won 2-0 by the famous English soccer team.

It was the biggest selling soccer match between two club sides by far, eclipsing attendance records for matches between Australia and international opponents ranging from Brazil to Greece.
