It’s a crying shame that the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, had to be postponed to July 23, 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
But it’s sure to be exciting when the opening ceremonies kick off the historic event next year.
With that being said, which Olympic Games had the largest attendance?
If you guessed the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, then you are correct.
According to Guinness World Records, 8.3 million tickets were sold, which is still the largest attendance at any Olympic Games in history.
The 2012 Summer Olympics games in London, United Kingdom, came close, with reportedly 8.2 million tickets sold, per Statista.
Following that up, 2000’s Sydney Olympic games sold 6.7 million tickets, while the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games registered 6.5 million entries into the event.
