World attendance record: 91,553 spectators!


91,553 spectators at the Camp Nou. Spanish women’s football managed to pulverize the best world record for attendance at a women’s football match. A record that came in the ‘new Classic’ in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Despite the rain and the fact that the game was a weekday (Wednesday) at 6:45 p.m., the fans did not want to miss the event. With this assistance, the best record ever achieved in a women’s football match is achieved, surpassing the 90,195 spectators at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena (California) in the 1999 World Cup final between the United States and China.

In this way, it is confirmed that the time has come and that a new era is opening in Spanish women’s football. The Camp Nou joins the inertia of recent years in the opening of large stadiums to Spanish women’s football and adds a new historical record so that more and more temples open their doors to women’s football. In fact, Of the sixteen teams in the Primera Iberdrola there are only two that have not yet opened their great stadium for a duel in this category: Real Madrid and Villarreal. The white team, which has barely two years of history in women’s football, plays in the Alfredo Di Stéfano, who welcomed 3,318 spectators for the first leg of this same Champions League tie between Barça and Real Madrid.

You have to go back to December 25, 1970 to attend the first match of this category at the Camp Nou, which also opened its doors for a Barça-Espanyol derby (5-0) in 2021. Although on that occasion the meeting was held behind closed doors due to the pandemic. More than a year later and on the same stage, 91,553 spectators wanted to star in a date that will be legendary in world women’s football. The Camp Nou has already burned its name into the history of this category, which hopes to continue conquering stadiums without setting limits.
