The number of people who watch a match; the number of fans who attend a game at the stadium. Example:
The world record for a football attendance was 200.000 who watched Brazil lose to Uruguay in the 1950 World Cup final in the Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro.
The attendances at the 2012 Olympic football tournament were very good indeed. Attendances of over 80.000 supporters watched both the men’s and the women’s gold medal matches.
