It was the biggest San Francisco 49ers game in the history of Levi's Stadium, and the fans showed up. Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers set a new record for attendance, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

Sunday's attendance added up to 72,211 excited fans who filled Levi's Stadium to watch the 49ers knock off the Packers 37-20 and advance to Super Bowl LIV. The attendance total broke a record that stood for eight ... days. Yes, it broke a record set the previous weekend when the 49ers hosted the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

"I've played the Packers a number of times," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game, "and I don't care where you play the Packers, there's always a ton of Green Bay fans in the stadium. And out of all the times I've ever played the Packers in any stadium in my life, I did not see green out there, and that's pretty hard to do.

"So, I love it here. I love Levi's and hoping our fans follow us to Miami."

While the 72,211 fans in attendance set a record for the largest crowd to watch a 49ers game, it ranks fifth all-time in Levi's Stadium history.
