After selling out the Champions League quarterfinal, Barcelona has once again sold out Camp Nou, this time for the Champions League semifinal.

The quarterfinal match broke the world record for the most-attended women’s soccer match ever.

Tickets for the first leg of the semifinal round, which will be played against Wolfsburg on April 22, sold out in just over 24 hours. Members were able to access up to 50,000 free tickets on Monday, which sold out quickly. Tuesday’s sale to the general public sold out in the afternoon.

According to the club, there are still tickets available that “UEFA must reserve for various groups” that could become available to the public in the days before the match.

Prior to the quarterfinal match, Barcelona’s Alexia Putellas was confident that the event could change the face of the game forever.

“I believe that tomorrow can be the start of a new era, because at the end of the day, tomorrow’s match is going to be inspiring for so many girls, I am guessing, that will be coming tomorrow to Camp Nou or who will be seeing us from TV,” Putellas said at the time. “They will be seeing women playing in Camp Nou, and I am sure in the future, in the mid or long run, we will be collecting the fruits of tomorrow’s match.”

Camp Nou’s capacity is 99,354, making it the largest stadium in Europe.
