Confirmed: Tickets for this summer's @UEFAWomensEURO final at Wembley have now sold out, having only gone on general sale under an hour ago.
Previously, UEFA revealed that it had already sold over 350,000 tickets for the entire tournament before they had even gone on sale to the general public. The final attendance number at the 2017 tournament was 247,041.
“This summer is going to be a game changer for European women’s football and we can’t wait to showcase what will be a record-breaking tournament,” said UEFA chief of women’s soccer Nadine Kessler. “It’s going to be bigger and better than ever before, so get ready, get excited and get your ticket now to show your support for your country in England this July.”
With a capacity of 90,000, a sold-out finale at Wembley Stadium on July 31 could break the current European record for a women’s game, which sits at 80,203.
There’s also more at stake in a home-field advantage. In 2017, England was knocked out by eventual champions the Netherlands, who also hosted the tournament. The Lionesses’ most-capped player of all time, Fara Williams, told SkySports she believes that England is a favorite with the tournament being played at home.
“They have got a fantastic squad of players,” she said. “They have got a manager now who has got hold of the trophy so hopefully she can bring it back with her.
“The blend within the squad, in terms of the youth and experience they’ve got, I genuinely believe it’s their best chance to bring it home. With the genuine support of the women’s game, the way it is now, I think they have a fantastic chance. We’re going into this tournament as one of the favorites.”
Previously group designations were announced, with the teams sharing a total of 16 million pounds in prize money, double the 8 million pound pool distributed in 2017.
