Juventus Women draw Italian record 39,027 crowd

Juventus Women drew 39,027 fans for their game against Fiorentina at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday, smashing the attendance record for a women’s club game in Italy.

The latest landmark moment for women’s football came just a week after the world record for the highest attendance at a club game was set.

Last Sunday 60,739 supporters watched Atlético Madrid’s women’s team lose 2-0 to Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.

Juventus Women normally play matches at the club’s training center in Vinovo. All tickets for Sunday’s game were free. The previous record for a women’s game in Italy was 14,000.

Meanwhile, a record nine countries have told Fifa they want to host the 2023 Women’s World Cup, while Barclays has signed a multi-million-pound deal as the first title sponsor of the English Women’s Super League.
