Some 55,000 tickets have been sold for this weekend’s Women’s Super League clash between Arsenal and Chelsea FC Women at Emirates Stadium (pictured).
The club is looking to set a new WSL attendance record, should all ticket-holders attend the match on Sunday.
Arsenal Women already holds the existing attendance record for this season’s opening match against Liverpool, also held at Emirates Stadium, which drew a crowd of 54,115.
An Arsenal win would send the side to the top of the WSL table, leapfrogging visitors Chelsea.
Arsenal has continued to break attendance records, after attracting 47,367 fans for a North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur FC Women at Emirates Stadium in 2022. This was then beaten by the Liverpool game earlier this season.
During the 2022-23 season, Emirates Stadium welcomed more than 60,000 for the second-leg match between Arsenal and VfL Wolfsburg in the UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-final.
The match was a sell-out for the Emirates and a women’s club football attendance record in England.
