rsenal have sold 20,000 tickets for next month’s women’s north London derby as clubs continue to thrive off the success of the Lionesses winning Euro 2022.
After England went all the way last month and beat Germany to win the European Championship, the women’s game has noticed a boom in ticket sales.
Arsenal’s website crashed earlier this week as fans scrambled to get tickets for their derby with Spurs at Emirates Stadium next month.
The club have now confirmed that 20,000 tickets have been sold and they are hoping to shift even more before the game on September 24.
The game is ideally situated as it is during an international break in the Premier League calendar, while tickets are affordably priced. An adult ticket is £12, while concession are just £6.
“The north London derby is a fixture that belongs at Emirates Stadium, so we’re delighted to be able to confirm the match will be played there once again this season,” said Arsenal Women manager Jonas Eidevall.
“The support we had from the fans at the Emirates last season was incredible and we’ve seen during the Euros how much demand there is to watch the biggest games at the best venues. I can’t wait to get back out there in front of the Arsenal supporters.”
