With 87,192 spectators at Wembley Stadium, Sunday’s England-Germany final broke the attendance record for a European Football Championship match, male or female.
The previous record was held in the 1964 men’s edition final in Spain, where the host country defeated the USSR 2-1 in front of 79,115 spectators.

A new record on English soil
Already the opening game between England and Austria had pushed the record for a Women’s EURO match to 68,871 spectators, while the record for a 2019 ‘Lionesses’ game was already set with 77,768 spectators at Wembley and already against Germany, who lost a friendly 2- 1.
The all-time record for a women’s football game was broken twice by Barcelona last spring, at the Camp Nou, the only stadium in Europe that can hold more people than Wembley.
On April 23, 91,648 spectators attended a Women’s Champions League semi-final between Barça and the Germans from Wolfsburg, with tickets priced at 2.5 euros for club subscribers and 9 to 15 euros for others. For the final of the Euro, the places between 15 and 99 Euro were auctioned off.
The total attendance at this Euro is 574,875, beating the record for the women’s continental competition set 5 years ago in the Netherlands with 247,041 spectators.
