Several attendance records have been smashed during UEFA Women's EURO 2022 and another landmark was reached following the semi-final between Germany and France. The overall tournament attendance record of 240,055 set at Women's EURO 2017 in the Netherlands has now been doubled, with last night's match bringing the total attendance of this tournament to 487,683.
Nearly 100,000 children have been part of that record-breaking attendance while 47% of all fans in the stadiums have been female, with a similar fan demographic anticipated for the final. Tens of thousands of international fans have travelled to England, bringing a festive atmosphere to the nine host cities.
The tournament has been marked by crowds enjoying this family-friendly atmosphere, and the same buzz and excitement can be expected for the final between England and Germany on Sunday, which is set to establish another major benchmark.
With a tournament stadium capacity of just over 87,000 at Wembley, fans have the chance to be part of a new all-time attendance record for a EURO final tournament match. The current attendance record for a EURO final tournament game – men's or women's – was set at the men's final in 1964 between Spain and the Soviet Union, which was played in front of 79,115 spectators at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid.
Nadine Kessler, UEFA chief of women's football and Women's EURO 2013 winner:
"Whoever comes out on top, England against Germany at the iconic Wembley Stadium will be one for the history books and an unforgettable event for a whole generation. For all the lucky ones who have a ticket for the final, we are looking forward to seeing you at Wembley, breaking another attendance record and supporting your team!"
Ticket holders arriving early can soak in the atmosphere at the Fan Party at Arena Square next to Wembley Stadium, which will open at 11:00 and be free to enter for those with a valid match ticket. There will be drinks and food of various cuisines on offer as well as live entertainment in the build-up to the match.
Advice for ticket holders
Ticket holders are advised to arrive at the stadium early to assist with enhanced security protocols and should only travel to the stadium with a valid ticket for the final.
Wembley Park is operating a 'No Street Drinking Zone' on Olympic Way and the surrounding area, supported by Brent Council, the Metropolitan Police and partners. For stadium information and policies, including details about the restricted bag policy and prohibited items list, visit here.
The UEFA ticketing portal was the only official platform to buy tickets and fans are strongly advised not to purchase tickets on the secondary market. For supporters without tickets, there are plenty of options to watch the game and join in the unique atmosphere of the tournament throughout the host country, either with friends and family from home – the match will be screened free-to-air on BBC One in England – or in pubs and bars.
