Barça-Madrid breaks the world attendance record in a women’s football match

The match played this Wednesday between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, corresponding to the second leg of the women’s ‘Champions’ quarter-finals, has entered the history of women’s football by becoming the match with the most spectators in the stadium thanks to the 91,553 fans who populated the Camp Nou.

The historic match between culés and meringues enters the football books after beating the final of the 1999 Women’s World Cup, which pitted the teams from China and the United States and brought together 90,195 spectators in the stands of the Rose Bowl stadium.

In other big tickets -more recent- the Wanda Metropolitano brought together 60,739 spectators in an Atlético-Barça de Liga game, while the ‘Champions’ finals have not had a greater impact than that mentioned, even with stadiums with less capacity.

But this Wednesday, Barça-Madrid went a step further with a historic entry, also taking advantage of the good time (6:45 p.m.) of the match. It was a perfect afternoon for the Blaugrana after beating the Madridistas 5-2 and completing their place in the semi-finals with an overall result of 8-3.
