Sacramento fans set record for loudest indoor roar
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The Sacramento Kings have set a record for the loudest roar at an indoor stadium.
The Kings said a sellout crowd of 17,317 at Friday night's game against the Detroit Pistons broke the previous Guinness Book of World Records mark of 106.6 decibels set by Milwaukee Bucks fans in 2008 three times.
Sacramento fans reached 124.9 decibels during a first quarter timeout. The crowd topped that at halftime and again before the fourth quarter, setting the record at 126 decibels.
An adjudicator for the Guinness Book of World Records presented the Kings with a certificate for the record. Detroit beat the Kings 97-90.
