Both legs of Concacaf Champions League final sold out

Both legs of the Concacaf Champions League final between the Montreal Impact and Club America are sellouts: Wednesday's first leg at Mexico City's Azteca Stadium, where 105,000 fans are expected, and the second leg, which will be played in front of a sellout crowd of 59,020 a week later at Montreal's Olympic Stadium.

"This is a new record for the club in terms of sales pace as we filled the stadium in less than two weeks, which is exceptional," said Impact executive vice president Richard Legendre.

Club America broke the Impact's six-year-old CCL attendance record when it drew 66,208 fans for its 6-0 win over Herediano in the second leg of this year's semifinals. Club America and the Impact have drawn five of the six largest crowds in the history of the competition, which began in 2008.

The European Cup record attendance is 127,621 for the 1960 final between Real Madrid and Eintracht Frankfurt at Glasgow's Hampden Park. The Libertadores Cup record is 120,000 fans for Sao Paulo's semifinal match against Newell's Old Boys at Estadio do Morumbi in 1992

Attendance will be the second highest total in club history, surpassing its previous Champions League mark from February 25, 2009, against Santos Laguna (55,571), as well as topping its inaugural MLS home opener on March 17, 2012, against the Chicago Fire (58,912).
