Largest sporting match you've attended.

Attendance wise.

Though three drawbacks were:

  1. It was the first 0-0 World Cup final
  2. The stifling heat (I was only 9 and think I sweated 9 stone in 90 minutes)
  3. Brazil’s kit having an orange trim that made them look like overcooked cheese on toast

Heineken Cup final in the Millennium Stadium, I think, so 76,000 or so.

Northampton v Leinster.

Got a free ticket as a result of putting up my mate’s friends who are Leinster supporters in the spare room. One of the best fun games of rugby I’ve seen live in fairness
