85,512 - the facts
03 November 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Over 85,000 fans created Spurs history at Wembley Stadium, connected by EE, against Bayer Leverkusen.
The final attendance of 85,512 for our UEFA Champions League opener against AS Monaco is now our record home attendance.
It surpassed our previous mark of 85,011 for our Champions League opener against Monaco in Sepember and 75,038 at White Hart Lane for our FA Cup sixth round tie against Sunderland at White Hart Lane on March 5, 1938.
That's not all though...
English club record
The figure of 85,512 now means we now hold the record for the highest attendance for a home match for an English club.
We have toppled our previous best of 85,011 against Monaco and 84,569 held by Manchester City for an FA Cup tie against Stoke at Maine Road in 1934.
Champions League home match record for an English club
Our 85,512 attendance is now the highest by an English club for a home match in the Champions League.
That toppled the 85,011 against Monaco, which in turn beat the previous best held by Manchester United, 75,520 against Lyon at Old Trafford on March 4, 2008.
We were just short of the record attendance for a Champions League match in England.
The top two attendances are both Champions League Finals at Wembley - 86,298 for Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich in 2013 and the highest, 87,695 for Manchester United v Barcelona in 2011.
It's also worth noting higher attendances in the Champions League's former guise as the European Cup. Again, two finals staged at the old Wembley Stadium attracted over 90,000 - Liverpool's win against Club Brugge in 1978 had a crowd of 92,500 and United's win against Benfica in 1967 was watched by 92,225.
