The Board of Control for Cricket in India said the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for the biggest crowd attendance during a T20 match.

This milestone for the maximum spectator attendance was achieved during the IPL 2022 final match between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals at the Narendra Modi Stadium on May 30, 2022, BCCI secretary Jay Shah said on Sunday.

 

Earlier known as the Gujarat Cricket Association Stadium, the stadium has a capacity of 110,000 which is nearly 10,000 more than Melbourne Cricket Ground with an official capacity of 100,024.

"Extremely delighted & proud to receive the Guinness World Record for the largest attendance at a T20 match when 101,566 people witnessed the epic IPL final at @GCAMotera's magnificent Narendra Modi Stadium on 29 May 2022. A big thanks to our fans for making this possible," Shah tweeted.
