UEFA Women’s Champions League: Barcelona vs. Wolfsburg Tickets Sold out Ahead of the Final Clash
According to UEFA, the Women’s Champions League final involving Barcelona and VfL Wolfsburg is the first final to be completely sold out since 2009–2010.
UEFA announced with a bang that for the first time in 13 years, the final of the women’s Champions League has been sold out. This will be a huge boost to the popularity of football on the women’s spectrum. According to UEFA, more than 34,100 seats have been distributed for the game on June 3 at the PSV Stadium in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
“This is the first time we have fully sold out a Women’s Champions League final. And that’s a few weeks in advance, which is just another sign that we have reached a new level,” said Nadine Kessler, UEFA managing director of women’s football.
The final will surpass the prior record for the most fans ever to watch a women’s football game in the Netherlands, which was achieved in 2019 when the Netherlands national team met Australia in the presence of 30,640 people at the same location. Barcelona has advanced to the Women’s Champions League finale four times in five seasons after winning the competition in 2020–2021. In 2012–13 and 2013–14, Wolfsburg prevailed.
