New Orleans Saints attempted to break Sacramento Kings crowd noise record

On November 15th of 2013, 17,000 plus filled Sleep Train Arena and broke the Guinness World Record for crowd noise at an indoor stadium – three separate times, eventually peaking at 126 decibels.

Just one night later, a boxing match across the pond attempted to do the same which quickly fizzled – proving to be no match for the thunderous Sleep Train crowd.

The record was secure until a few weeks ago when 70,000 plus decided they’d attempt to break the record set by Sacramento Kings fans during a Sunday Night Football game in Louisiana.

As the New Orleans Saints hosted the Carolina Panthers, hoards of fans waved their supplied rally towels in effort to break the record with a Guinness representative in attendance, all while playing on national television.

They failed.

At their peak, 70,000 plus could only muster a 122.6 decibel level, well below the 126 record recorded by the much smaller Sacramento crowd.

It’s likely more efforts will be made to break the record in the near future, but they’ll have a challenge in front of them considering 70K couldn’t match the passion of 17K Sacramento fans.
