Continental Tyres League Cup Final tickets sold out

  • +1

The FA has confirmed that all tickets for this Sunday’s FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup Final at Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park have now sold out for the first time in the competition’s history.

The match between London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea is set to surpass the previous attendance record for a Women’s League Cup Final, with almost 24,000 tickets issued for Sunday’s fixture. The current record was set last season when 8,004 fans watched Manchester City defeat Chelsea at AFC Wimbledon’s Cherry Red Records Stadium.

With this Sunday’s Final being the 12th since the first was held in 2011, the continuing momentum from a magnificent summer has once again yielded positive results, with thousands of fans securing their tickets to ensure they don’t miss out on one of the biggest matches in the domestic calendar.

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 shout 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 out game special.”

Those who missed out on a ticket will still be able to watch all the action, however, with the Final live on BBC One for the first time, kicking off at 3pm.
