KU to Attempt Holiday-Sweater World Record

KSAL StaffDecember 19, 2015

The University of Kansas will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest gathering of people wearing holiday sweaters during the first half of the school’s upcoming men’s basketball game.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the attempt will happen during Saturday’s game. University officials say the current record belongs to Loughborough University in Loughborough, England. They say 1,175 people gathered in holiday sweaters on December 10th, 2014.

Associate Athletics Director Jim Marchiony says he and his colleagues on the marketing staff came up with the plan during a brainstorming session last summer.

To join the record attempt, participants must wear a holiday sweater, which has been defined as having long sleeves and at least one holiday-themed motif.
