Record crowd expected for SSE Women’s FA Cup Final

  • +1

This weekend’s SSE Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium connected by EE is set for a record crowd.

More than 30,000 tickets have been sold for Saturday’s showpiece, which will be contested by London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea (2pm KO).

Last year’s final, the first to be staged at Wembley, was played in front of a record 30,710 supporters – and came off the back of England’s historic third-place finish at the World Cup in Canada.

This year, thanks to The FA’s partnership with SSE, all children can attend the final for free.

Adult tickets are priced £15 and tickets are still available here or by calling 0844 826 2010.

FA head of football participation and development Kelly Simmons said: “Ahead of Saturday’s final, it’s excellent news that we’re looking set to match and even surpass last year’s ticket sales.

“This success is down to the hard work that the clubs, our staff and our Cup sponsor SSE have put into this year’s final, and shows the level of support there is for our clubs and the wider women’s game.

“Last year’s final was a fantastic occasion and another landmark for women’s football, and we’re delighted that this year’s looks set to be another fitting showcase for the game.

“We wish our two finalists, Arsenal and Chelsea, the very best of luck for Saturday.”

The match will be shown live on BBC One.
