A group of Seattle Seahawks fans is trying to make CenturyLink Field the loudest stadium on Earth.

Volume 12, which isn't officially associated with the Seahawks, is organizing an effort to break the Guinness World Record for "loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium" during the Sept. 15 home opener against the San Franscisco 49ers.

Guinness has approved the group's attempt to set the new world record, Volume 12 said on their Facebook page.

The current Guinness record for is 131.76 decibels, which occurred during a soccer match at the Ali Sami Yen Sport Complex Turk Telekom Arena on March 18, 2011, in Istanbul, Turkey.

The Seahawks say the group, which isn't officially associated with the group, said Volume 12 has been measured at 112 decibels.
