    Since WW2 there have been 2 World Cups where the total attendance was less than 1 000 000 (1 million) and one tournament where the total attendance was over 3 000 000 (3 million).

    Name the 3 World Cups described above

    I'm gonna guess that 54 was the one under 1 million because well I don't associate the Swiss with big stadia, I may be wrong of course

    I'm gonna guess 98 for over 3 million

    And the other for low attendances hmmmm 1990? I know the grounds weren't sellous there.

    Let's work together Brumby. 54 or 62 had under 1 million

    If it's 62, then that means 98 had over 3 million

    My guess is that 54 was under 1 million

    A new guess is that 94 was over 3 million

    Can't think of the other though

    Surprises me as there were only 24 teams & (counts on fingers, runs out...) 12 less games than 98 & 02.

    Did 58 have under 1 million?

    Good guess actually, with it being in Sweden

    As for 94, well think about it, it was in America, most of the grounds hold about 3 million supporters anyway, it's because most Americans are obese so they need more space, but when normal sized people come to watch sports a whole lot can fit in
