Nebraska Women’s Volleyball Breaks World Record

Sep 1, 2023

Nebraska won’t play its first home football game until Sept. 16, but on Wednesday night, 92,003 fans packed Lincoln’s Memorial Stadium for Volleyball Day — making it the highest-attended women’s sports event in history.

Highlighted by the Cornhuskers’ volleyball team taking on in-state counterpart Nebraska-Omaha, the crowd broke the previous record for a women’s sports event set in April 2022, when Barcelona hosted Wolfsburg at Camp Nou for a UEFA Women’s Champions League match.

The evening also included an exhibition between Division II schools Nebraska-Kearney and Wayne State.
