    Default Higher attendance than stadium allows

    Don't know if others has noticed this, but I just played a match with my Juventus side against Lazio with a higher attendance than my stadium allows.
    I got a new stadium with a capacity of 59190 just before the season started, so I was a bit surprised to see that 59196 had been at the match.

    Where did these 6 extra people sit?
    And is it even legal to squeeze more people into a stadium than it's built for?

    Perhaps your club was calculating that not every one would attend every match...

    I know why mine happened.

    I had a 5000 capacity stadium, I sold 1900 season tickets, unfortunately being in the premier league meant my stadium could only use the seats which was only 1300, so 600 of them wearnt allowed to stand so were refused entry.
