Guinness World Records Loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium (outdoors) 3 July 2013

LOUDEST CROWD ROAR AT A SPORTS STADIUM (OUTDOORS)


DEFINITION OF RECORD
This record is for the greatest sound level reached by a crowd roar at a sports stadium. This record is to be attempted by a crowd of unlimited size. This record is measured in decibels (dBA).

GUIDELINES FOR LOUDEST CROWD ROAR AT A SPORTS STADIUM 1. The sound level produced should be measured on a Class 1 precision measuring noise level meter, certified and calibrated. (such as Casella CEL Inc. Sound Level Meters). 2. The microphone should be positioned at between 1.5 and 1.6 metres above the ground. For the purposes of this record, the microphone may be placed on the sidelines, but must be on level ground with the pitch. The microphone may be no closer than 2.5 metres to the nearest participant. 3. The record is measured for the general roar, and thus any external instruments may be used by spectators to assist in generating a louder volume. These include horns, drums, plastic noisemakers (i.e. Thundersticks), vuvuzelas, etc. Please note, however, that there must be no electronic or mechanical noise assistance provided by the stadium/venue. Thus, any organ music, pre-recorded sound effects, microphoned public address announcers, cannons, or similar may not be used during the time of the recording. 4. Measurements should be made in dBA, with the highest peak reading to be recorded. 5. At least one of the statements provided must be a sound engineer or similarly qualified individual who can verify based on testing that the measuring device is properly calibrated and functioning accurately. 6. Measurements should be made and witnessed by the independent judges using suitably accurate (professional standard) equipment and all relevant dimensions of the stadium must be given. 7. A print out or photograph recording the peak reading should be provided with the evidence. GENERAL GUIDELINES The name of the organisation, company or person(s) making the attempt must be given, along with the date and place. The event must take place in a public place or in a venue open to public inspection.
