Real Madrid Manchester United Soccer

“The Big House”

This is Michigan Stadium and it is usually home to the University of Michigan american football team. It has just played host to a friendly between Manchester United and Real Madrid and despite the game itself being a fairly run of the mill pre-season game a landmark in american soccer was reached. The stadium is the third largest sports arena in the world and the attendance for the friendly yesterday has broken the record for the number of people attending a football match in America. There were 109,318 supporters inside the stadium and this has beaten the previous record of 101,799 set in 1984
