Saturday’s North London derby was on for the history books, with Arsenal smashing the Women’s Super League attendance record.

Emirates Stadium welcomed 47,367 fans after Arsenal announced 53,757 tickets had been sold for the Tottenham fixture.

The matchup eclipsed the previous WSL attendance record of 32,362 set by the Hotspurs in 2019.

The Gunners gave the packed Emirates crowd plenty to cheer for, blanking Tottenham 4-0 in a dominant showing.

Beth Mead continued her sensational season, opening up scoring for the Gunners in the game’s fifth minute. The England star gathered a deflected clearance before striking a curler into the far post for the go-ahead goal.

Vivianne Miedema added a brace to Arsenal’s tally, while Rafaella Souza nodded in a cheeky header to secure the Gunners a blowout victory against their rivals.

Arsenal will play six matches at Emirates Stadium, the club’s main venue, this season, giving fans an opportunity to watch the Gunners on the big stage. Meadow Park serves as Arsenal’s home stadium, with a maximum capacity of 4,5000.

The Gunners are one of four WSL teams competing in their club’s main stadium this weekend, with a record 80,000 fans expected to attend the league’s fixtures.
