Seahawks fans aim to break record for crowd noise in home opener

Seahawks fans have long considered themselves one of the loudest fanbases in sports, now they’re out to prove it. A fan group known as Volume 12 has applied with Guinness World Records to measure the sound levels at Seattle’s Sept. 15 home opener against San Francisco. The goal is to break the Guinness record for “loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium” which was set in 2011 at a soccer match in Turkey.

In that game between rivals Galatasary and Fenerbahce, crowd noises were recorded at 131.76 decibels. Of course that doesn’t necessarily make that the loudest game in sports history, just the loudest with Guinness on hand to certify the achievement (is being loud an achievement?).

According to Seahawks.com, fans produce noise levels of 112 decibels (I’m sure the fact that it’s 112 and not 111 or 113 is purely a coincidence, right?), which if accurate means Seahawks fans have their work cut out for them come Sept.

We know that CenutryLink Field and the fans who fill it are extremely loud. This fall we’ll apparently find out if they are world record loud.
