Largest attendance at Highbury - 73,295 v Sunderland 9 March 1935
Arsenal’s highest attendance at Highbury crowded into the stadium for a game against Sunderland on March 9, 1935 in the old first division.
A total of 73,295 people turned up, but they were not treated to a thriller as the match ended 0-0. George Allison’s side went on to win the championship that season.
Arsenal have recorded a greater attendance than this for a 'home' game. The Club used Wembley Stadium to host Champions League home games for two seasons - 1998/99 and 1999/00 - and 73,707 people watched RC Lens win 1-0 on November 25, 1998.
The biggest attendance at Highbury since the advent of the Premiership was on May 15, 2004 when 38,214 fans turned out to see Patrick Vieira lift the Premiership trophy after a 2-1 win completed Arsenal's famous unbeaten season.
