The Guinness World Record for crowd noise was set on Sunday night at CenturyLink Field during the Seahawks Week 2 game against the NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers.

Congratulations, 12th Man.

TheSeahawksfanbase reached a noise level of 131.9 decibels during Sunday night’s game against the NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers at CenturyLink Field, setting the Guinness World Record for crowd noise.

Former Seahawks defensive lineman Joe Tafoya and his “Volume 12” group were behind the fan-driven effort that set out to top the previous Guinness World Record of 131.7 decibels set two years ago during a soccer match in Istanbul, Turkey.

A record-setting crowd contributed to the effort, as the announced attendance of 68,338 marks the largest ever for a Seahawks game at CenturyLink Field. The gathering topped the previous record of 68,331 set on November 12, 2007, in a game that also came against the 49ers.
