Women’s football has been growing in popularity for a while now, but to have reached a point where their international Wembley fixtures sell more tickets than the men’s is astonishing.

The FA have confirmed that more tickets have been sold for the women’s match against Germany than were sold for the men’s 1-0 friendly victory over Norway last month, according to the BBC.
With just 40,181 tickets sold for the Norway fixture, the women’s side have already surpassed that despite the game not taking place until November 23.
The FA had only expected around 30,000 tickets to be sold, with the best attendance for an England women’s game originally set at 29,092 in 2005. They have already smashed that however, and sales could continue to rise.
The rivalry between England and Germany will no doubt have helped the numbers, but the fact that the upcoming women’s game is only a friendly bodes extremely well for the future of the game.
