Saracens have sold over 80,000 tickets for Saturday's game against Harlequins and are targeting a new world record attendance.
The current world record for a rugby union game in England is 83,671 set by Sarries when they entertained Quins in March 2012. But with two days left until their match against Quins, chairman Nigel Wray wants the club to beat that total.
"With luck, we'll set a new world record for the largest crowd ever to watch a rugby union match in England and the largest crowd ever to watch a club rugby union match anywhere in the world. Saracens at Wembley has become a calendar event in London, a great day out including great rugby and a great show at a great stadium."
