When the 49ers come to town on September 15, fans of the Seahawks don’t just want to be loud. They want to be the loudest crowd in the history of sports.
A Seahawks fan organization known as Volume 12 has applied with Guinness to have the noise level monitored at the home opener. If successful, the Seahawks would knock off fans of a Turkish soccer team, whose roar achieved a decibel level of 131.76 in 2011.
The Seahawks have claimed that the crowd’s roar at CenturyLink Field can reach a decibel level of 112, which makes their stadium the loudest stadium in the NFL, though still far off from that Turkish soccer team’s record. Maybe the home opener against the 49ers will be enough to put the 12th Man over the top.
