Arsenal and Chelsea’s Conti Cup final clash declared a sell-out

It is understood an attendance of around 25,000 could be recorded at SE25 this weekend, the highest ever for an FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup match.

No FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup final has previously attracted a five-figure crowd. The current attendance record for the Women’s Continental Tyres League cup final is 8,004, which was recorded for the last season’s tie between Chelsea and Manchester City at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, home of AFC Wimbledon. The attendance could triple this weekend.

Speaking following this evening’s announcement, Kelly Simmons, FA Director of the Women’s Professional Game, said “I could not be more delighted to see that we are going to have another packed stadium on Sunday for one of our biggest matches of the season.

“The attendance on Sunday is likely to smash last season’s record, and really highlights what a phenomenal campaign we are having and the booming interest in our leagues and competitions.

“A big shouts out as well to my colleagues and the clubs who have worked tirelessly to promote this match. It really should be an incredible showcase of what makes our game special.”

The 2022/2023 FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup final kicks-off at 3pm on Sunday afternoon.
