Beşiktaş beat Liverpool in front of Europa League record crowd of 63,324 [divider]
Beşiktaş beat Liverpool in the Europa League Round of 32 at the Atatürk Olympic stadium in front of a record crowd of 63,324 according to the official UEFA website.
The Black Eagles could have had a higher attendance but UEFA regulations required there to be some empty sections in the stadium for security.
Beşiktaş sold out all their tickets on Monday and accepted traditional paper tickets in addition to the controversial Passolig e-ticketing system.
Passolig is compulsory in the Süper Lig but fans have boycotted the new system amid personal data security fears.
The e-ticketing system is currently being taken to court by a non governmental organization named Supporter Rights Solidarity Center (Taraf-Der).
Taraf-Der are campaigning for the Passolig to be disbanded on grounds that the e-ticketing system violates the constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights.
The company issuing the cards can sell private data to third parties and charge a bank commission on every sale.
