The Women’s Super League (WSL) attendance record has been broken once again at Emirates Stadium, as Arsenal Women beat Manchester United Women 3-1 on Saturday. 

It was the first time that the Emirates sold out in WSL history, with some 60,160 tickets snapped up.

Arsenal has consistently broken WSL records at the 60,704-capacity Emirates Stadium, the venue traditionally occupied by the men’s team.

The new figure beats the 59,042 that watched Arsenal beat fellow London club Chelsea Women in December. At the time, this crowd beat the attendance record that was set by Arsenal at the beginning of the season, with the club’s opening 2023-24 match against Liverpool Women attracting 54,115.

In May last year, some 60,063 watched Arsenal feature in the UEFA Women’s Champion League against VfL Wolfsburg Women at the Emirates.

Traditionally, Arsenal Women play games at the 4,500-capacity Meadow Park, but the club is scheduled to play six of its 11 home games at the Emirates during the current campaign.
