95,000 fans

That's the record attendance for an Asian Champions League game...held last week in Iran.

Perhaps only an Indian team, from Mumbai, in future years could break this record given they regularly get over 100,000 for local derbies.

Shows the potential of the game in Asia though.

KUALA LUMPUR: Piroozi’s Round of 16 clash with Bunyodkor smashed the ACL attendance record with over 95,000 spectators going through the Azadi Stadium turnstiles to watch the Iranian giants' shock 1-0 loss to the Uzbeks.

What would have been the crowd if they had let women in?
