Men’s football is becoming unpopular in Barca? Women’s football is occupying that place? If you look at the Spanish giant Barcelona, you will see the truth. Because, there are more spectators in women’s football now than in men’s football in Barcelona.
It would be wrong to just say ‘more’. They also set a record. On Friday night, Barcelona’s New Camp set the record for the most number of visitors in the history of women’s football. The record was set by spectators at Bar প্রথমa’s first leg of the UEFA Women’s Champions League semi-final against Wolfsburg.
The New Camp was attended by 91,748 spectators on Friday night. Women’s football internationals or clubs – this is the record for most spectators at any stage. The Barcelona women won the match 5-0 against Wolfsburg.
Earlier this year, the highest number of spectator attendance was recorded in Barcelona. 91,553 spectators turned out to enjoy the match against Real Madrid in the quarter-finals last March. Which is 95 less than the number of spectators present to watch the match against Wolfsburg on Friday.
The record for most spectators in international football was in 1999. The United States and China met in the final of the Women’s World Cup. The Pasadena Roseball Stadium in California was packed with 90,165 spectators that day.
“It was a sight to behold,” Barcelona midfielder Patri Guizaro told a news conference after the match. There were so many spectators in the match against Real Madrid today and a month ago! Really seeing so many visitors we have no words in our mouths. I am sure that as the days and years go by, it will become more than what we have achieved. Honestly, we didn’t know that there would be such a huge audience. ‘
However, many believe that 110,000 spectators turned out at the Azteca Stadium to watch the 1981 Women’s World Cup final between Denmark and host Mexico. But there is no official record of spectator attendance in that match. Denmark lost to Mexico in the match and became the champion.
Barcelona’s women’s soccer matches are usually held at the 6,000-seat studio Johan Cruyff. It is also used as a training ground for clubs. But as the demand for tickets continues to grow, the matches of the knockout stages of the Champions League have to be brought to New Camp.
This is only the third competitive match of the Barাa women footballers in this stadium with a capacity of 99,000 spectators. They had to play against Espanyol at the Close Door Stadium last year due to Corona. In the next two matches, they set a record of spectator attendance.
