Euro 2017 was, at that point in time, the most attended women’s European Championship in history with 240,045 people attending the tournament hosted in the Netherlands.
That record has already been broken by Euro 2022. With 8,173 people watching France beat Belgium 2-1 in Rotherham, Euro 2022 blew by its predecessor and shot up to an overall attendance of 248,065.

With 15 games yet to come, including the quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final itself in 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium, who knows what figure we will end up at but it will be a long, long way ahead of 240,045!
This speaks to the rapid growth of the women’s game over the last few years, exemplified by this last season when the attendance for any women’s football match in the world was shattered by Barcelona.

For over two decades the 1999 World Cup final at the Pasadena Rose Bowl stood as the most-attended game in women’s football with 90,185 people showing up to watch the USA beat China 5-4 on penalties.
Barcelona smashed that record this season when, in the UEFA Women’s Champions League quarter-final second-leg, the Blaugrana obliterated Real Madrid 5-2 in front of a crowd of 91,553.
They then beat their own record three weeks later, hammering Wolfsburg 5-1 to the delight of 91,648 people in attendance. Wembley could be the third women’s football match in the year with and attendance of 90,000+ attendance. That would be a huge symbolic leap forward for the women’s game in England, Europe and all around the world.
