It’s going to be loud in Buffalo on Saturday night. Really, really loud.

With the NLL Finals tied at 1, the Colorado Mammoth head to New York and the KeyBank Center to face more than just a talented Bandits team looking for its first NLL championship since 2008. The Bandits tweeted Thursday that there will be a sold out crowd at KeyBank, with just over 19,000 tickets sold.

The Bandits have hosted that many fans four times prior to this Saturday. But only three games in NLL history have ever eclipsed the 19,070 that KeyBank Center can hold, according to thelaxmag.com:

TOP ATTENDANCE IN NLL HISTORY

— April 27, 2001: 19,409; Philadelphia Wings vs. Toronto Rock in Toronto
— May 7, 2004: 19289; Calgary Roughnecks vs. Buffalo Bandits in Calgary

An NLL champion will be decided Saturday, with the opening faceoff scheduled for 8 p.m. Eastern. The game will air live on ESPNU and ESPN+.
