Emirates Stadium welcomed over 60,000 fans for Arsenal Women’s UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-final second leg match against Germany’s VfL Wolfsburg. 

The Women’s Super League side lost 2-3 to the visitors yesterday (Monday), with Wolfsburg progressing to the final.

A total of 60,063 fans attended the match, a record for women’s club football in England and a sell-out for the 60,704-capacity Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal went into the second leg equal at 2-2, before Wolfsburg went on to win the tie 4-5 on aggregate.

The Frauen Bundesliga side will face Primera División club FC Barcelona Femení in the UEFA Women’s Champions League final at PSV Stadium in the Netherlands on June 3.

Arsenal Women’s previous attendance record for a match at Emirates Stadium stood at 47,367, which was set during the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur Women in September last year.

Some 21,307 fans also attended the first leg at Wolfsburg’s Volkswagen Arena.

Arsenal Women said on Twitter: “Gooners… your support was incredible tonight. For making this sell-out possible and backing us through every tackle, challenge and shot at goal, from everyone at Arsenal…thank you.”
