Record-Setting Riga

18 June 2009
Women's basketball entered a new era in Europe on Thursday night when a crowd of 8,713 turned out to watch Latvia's EuroBasket Women Quarter-Final against Russia at the Arena Riga.

The attendance is the largest for a EuroBasket Women Final Round game in the modern era (since the fall of Soviet Union), according to statistics available to FIBA Europe.

The previous record was 8,000 in Hungary 12 years ago in the Semi-Final between Slovakia and the Hungarians.
