Absolute Record for women's football attendance in Spain

Post by daib0 » 30 Jan 2019, 21:21

Wednesday's clash between Athletic Club and Atlético de Madrid, corresponding to the semifinals of the Copa de la Reina, has gathered 48,121 spectators at the San Mamés stadium, thus breaking the record of attending a women's football game in Spain.

Unthought of 20 years ago ... is women's football really "arriving" now?!

this one was a special one-off becuse it was a cup semi-final.

But attendances in general for women's football is coming on in leaps and bouunds in Spain. This season so far for example:

League - At- Madrid v Barcelona - almost 14,000

League - Valencia v Levante - 17,000 +

Cup - Barca have had over 10,000

League - quite a few other games have rolled in at around the 8-9,000 mark...
