Spurs set English attendance record


London (AFP) – Tottenham smashed the record for the highest attendance for an English club on Wednesday as 85,011 fans packed into Wembley for their Champions League clash against Monaco.

With Tottenham’s White Hart Lane stadium capacity reduced while work continues on the redevelopment of their historic home, the north London club have opted to play their European matches at Wembley this season.

That gave them the opportunity to break a host of attendance records as Tottenham fans flocked to the English national stadium.

The record crowd surpassed the previous high for an English club of 84,467 set by Manchester City for an FA Cup tie against Stoke at Maine Road in 1934.

It was also the largest home attendance for an English club in the Champions League and set a new attendance record for Tottenham, whose previous highest home gate was 75,038 for an FA Cup match against Sunderland in 1938.

“Tonight’s attendance breaks three records — thank you for your incredible support,” a message on Tottenham’s Twitter account read.
