Saracens have broken through the 75,000 ticket barrier for their next trip to Wembley Stadium.
The reigning Aviva Premiership champions take on league-leaders Harlequins at the home of English football on March 31.
The game will set a new record attendance for a rugby union fixture at Wembley, with Sarries' best return currently 47,000 after seven games at the ground.
Saracens chief Edward Griffiths initially targeted a crowd of 60,000, after Quins drew 82,000 fans - a world record for a regular season game - to the reverse fixture at Twickenham last December.
The current record for a domestic match belongs to Leinster and Munster, who contested a Heineken Cup semi-final in front of 82,208 fans at Croke Park in 2009.
