Seattle fans set new stadium noise record

The Seattle Seahawks fans have set a new noise record for

loudest outdoor sports stadium, taking back a mark they achieved

earlier this season.

An official from Guinness World Records recorded the crowd noise

at 137.6 decibels during the Seahawks victory over the New Orleans

Saints on Monday night. The record came during the second quarter

of Seattle’s 34-7 victory and was announced on the Seahawks Twitter

page.

Seahawks fans had set a record of 136.6 in a win over San

Francisco in September. The mark was topped by Kansas City fans in

October with 137.5 decibels.

To put that in perspective, a jet engine at 100 feet is about

140 decibels.
