About 7800 people have performed the world's largest haka in Rotorua.

The International Rugby Club's giant haka attempt took place at Rotorua's Village Green at midday on Saturday.

The Maori All Blacks are set to face the British and Irish Lions on Saturday night in Rotorua.

Even though they're awaiting the record to be officially confirmed, co-founder of the International Rugby Club, Tony Molloy, is confident that the record has been smashed.

"This was the exact kind of energy we wanted to bring into Rotorua today ahead of the match... an opportunity to connect a group of rugby-loving fans through an authentic experience," Mr Molloy said.
