THE attendance of Holland’s win over Senegal was announced as 1,700 MORE than the stadium’s capacity.
And a vast amount of empty seats were spotted around the Al-Thumama Stadium throughout the game.
The official capacity for the stadium is said to be 40,000.
But the announcement over the loudspeaker towards the end of the Dutch’s 2-0 victory claimed 41,721 were present for the game.
And those on social media ripped into the attendance figure given.

Another added: “They’re getting 104% attendance at their games 🤦🏻♂️.”
And a third said: “Maybe they counted everyone twice?”
The attendance being reported as more than the capacity of the stadia is already becoming a theme at this World Cup.
