Nebraska volleyball establishes a global record for female sports attendance.

Nebraska volleyball is unique, and not just in the volleyball or NCAA worlds.

The Cornhuskers broke the previous world record for attendance at a women's athletic event on Wednesday, drawing 92,003

people to Memorial Stadium for a game versus Omaha, breaking the previous high of 91,648 established by FC Barcelona Femen last year.

The figure not only broke the women's global record, but it also set a new mark for Memorial Stadium, where the Huskers play football.

Wednesday marked the end of a battle to set the record for an NCAA regular-season volleyball match.

Nebraska set a record with 15,797 spectators in attendance against Creighton last year, but it was broken one week later by rival Wisconsin,

Nebraska revealed its intentions to reclaim the record in April and promptly sold out its 82,900 seats, but then opened up

thousands more standing room-only tickets. Because the volleyball court only took up a portion of the football field, the stadium could accommodate many more fans.
