The Carling Black Label Cup clash between Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs has broken the record for attendance at FNB Stadium.
On Saturday, 94 807 people were inside the stadium when the Buccaneers beat Amakhosi 4-3 on penalties after the match had ended 1-1 in regulation time.
The previous record was 94 713 that was set when South Africa’s rugby team the Springboks hosted New Zealand at the Johannesburg venue back in 2010.
FNB Stadium was originally opened in 1989, but underwent a major upgrade for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
