It will come as no surprise that women’s football ticket sales are on the up following the Lionesses Euro 2022 triumph and Arsenal season tickets have sold out.
The England v USA friendly on 7th of October sold out in less 24 hours for general tickets with only premium hospitality tickets available.
That means around 90k will fill up Wembley Stadium for the heavyweight match between the Euro champions and the World champions.
Arsenal women’s ticket sales have also hit a new high as reported by Molly Hudson and Tim Stillman:
Further to this, Arsenal have sold out 1500 season tickets, more than double they managed last season. (They upped the amount available, was previously only a 1000 max) https://t.co/cFI9coxqwL

The reported 1,500 season ticket sell out is about 37% of the official Borehamwood FC capacity.
But, as we know, not all the seats are available to fans as the old Covid “red zone” in the East Stand is still closed to fans.
That leaves a lot of tickets available on general sale, although with the new influx of fans brought by the Euros, sell-outs might happen more often now.
Previously, sell-outs were driven by the opponent’s prestige and their own fans coming in large numbers to take many seats.
The 16,000 tickets sold for the North London derby should be a record for a standalone Women’s game at the Emirates as double headers with the men obviously brought in bigger attendances.
Upper tier is still not available, which means fans wanting a better view than the lower tier view have to buy tickets in club level for a higher price rather than being able to buy in the upper area.
Other Barclays WSL side have also reported an increase in season ticket sales:
Women’s football is definitely on the up in England on the football and the commercial side and long may it continue.
