Most Vuvuzelas Blown Simultaneously

Most Vuvuzelas Blown Simultaneously

23 July 2009, Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Following its global exposure at the Confederations Cup, the traditional South African sporting instrument known as the vuvuzela was the subject of Guinness World Records™' most recent live adjudication.

Taking place at the brand-new Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in the "Windy City" of Port Elizabeth, South Africa, an attempt for the most vuvuzelas blown simulatenously took place on the evening of 23 July 2009, before the Vodacom Challenge game between the Orlando Pirates and the Kaizer Chiefs.


The event was an outstanding (and deafening) success, with a total of 12,511 people all managing to blow together for a brand-new Guinness World Records-approved achievement. GWR's Rob Molloy was on hand to officially recognize the record attempt.


After the attempt, a pulsating game of high-tempo soccer followed between South Africa's top two teams, ending 1-1 at full time. With no extra-time, the Chiefs eventually won in a sudden-death penalty shoot-out and now go on to play Manchester City in the final of the tournament in Pretoria on Saturday.
