Seahawks fans to attempt stadium roar record
SEATTLE (AP) — Fans of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks will attempt to break the Guinness World Records mark for the loudest stadium at Sunday’s game against division rivals the San Francisco 49ers.
The record, officially listed as “loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium,” is 131.76 decibels set in 2011 at Turkey’s Ali Sami Yen Sport Complex Turk Telekom Arena during a football match between Galatasaray and Fenerbahce.
Former Seahawks defensive end Joe Tafoya said: “Seahawk fans are always loud, so basically we’re going to measure it.”
Tafoya now co-runs Volume 12, the fan group organizing the attempt. The group is footing the bill for the Guinness World Records official to come to Seattle and has found a sound engineer with equipment to do the measuring.
