On Saturday, the German top league combined hockey and football craziness by staging a hockey game where masses of fans tend to go the most: a football stadium.

The Nuremberg Ice Tigers wrote hockey history with the first DEL Winter Game at Stadion Nürnberg, a stone’s throw away from the ice rink the team usually plays.

An announced sell-out crowd of 50,000 spectators came to watch the game against reigning champion Eisbären Berlin – including 6,000 to 7,000 Eisbären supporters who made the 450-kilometre journey to Nuremberg – and to break the single-game attendance record for a league game in Europe that was previously held by Helsinki.

Germany also holds the all-time attendance record for a hockey game in Europe which was set on 7 May 2010 when 77,803 spectators watched Germany win the opening game of the 2010 IIHF World Championship against the United States at Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen.
