The post-Euro 2022 buzz continues on Sunday as last year’s crowd is almost doubled for Chelsea v Manchester United
The fervour and excitement of the crowds milling around a packed Olympic Way. The music from Boxpark Wembley reverberating around as fans of all ages gather in the fan zones and beyond, full of anticipation for the 90 minutes ahead. These scenes, rare less than a decade ago, are now customary in women’s football as the sport continues to go from strength to strength.
Another landmark will be reached, another record broken with Sunday’s Women’s FA Cup final. For the third time this season, Wembley will be sold out for a women’s game. Chelsea and Manchester United will walk out in front of about 90,000 fans, almost double the previous record for the final, set last year.
