The reason many people today still say the actual crowd figure was around 120,000 is that many fences were found flat after the match giving the appearance many had found their way into the ground without paying. Due to the nature of the old stadium there were also many places young children could sneak through and men could climb over.
It would be great if we could take back the record from Stadium Australia (ANZ as it is now known).
Dare I ask if anyone on here was at the game ????
** Fun Fact ** Laurel & Hardy were playing at the Alhambra on the same night
