Tickets for Sunday’s FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup final between Arsenal and Chelsea at Selhurst Park have now sold out.

The Football Association announced the news this evening via an official press release.

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

No FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup final has previously attracted a five-figure crowd. The current attendance record for a FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup final is 8,004 which was recorded for last season’s tie between Chelsea and Manchester City at The Cherry Red Records Stadium, home of AFC Wimbledon. That attendance could potentially be tripled 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 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 our game special.”

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