FC Barcelona Femini draw world record 91,553 women’s football attendance at Nou Camp

FC Barcelona Femini drew a world record 91,553 crowd for a women's football match during their 5-2 victory against Real Madrid at the Nou Camp on March 30 to reach the Uefa Women's Champions League semi-finals.

The sellout crowd surpassed the previous-best mark of 90,185 for the 1999 Women's World Cup final between the United States and China at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The previous highest attendance for a women's club game was set in 2019 when Atletico Madrid's women's team drew 60,739 fans for a league match against FC Barcelona at Wanda Metropolitano.

"I’m speechless. It’s a dream come true. I can only answer with more work, getting better and winning games so we can give them a big spectacle," said FC Barcelona Femini goalscorer Alexia Putellas. "I saw a lot of girls, children with that spark in their eyes. It’s amazing to be part of history."

Each of the club's estimated 147,000 members has been entitled to claim up to four free tickets each, only paying a small administration fee.

FC Barcelona Femini usually play home matches at the 6,000-capacity Johan Cruyff Stadium.

FC Barcelona's new wide-ranging commercial deal with music streaming service Spotify includes branding on the women's team shirts.
