Tickets for the first ever Women’s Finalissima have sold out - almost five months before the event.

The match will feature European Champions England against the Copa America Femenina winners, Brazil, in a game at Wembley Stadium on 6 April 2023.

The two champions will meet at the home of English football for a chance at grabbing another international trophy with the game set to be played in front of a packed out stadium that seats 90,000 at full capacity.

'The great games keep on coming for us,' says England head coach, Sarina Wiegman. 'This time, we have the opportunity to welcome Brazil to Wembley and it will be another big moment after the EUROs and USA match.'

The Lionesses’ last two games at Wembley have been packed full with fans. Most recently, 76,893 watched them beat the World Cup winners, USA, in a friendly fixture following England’s triumph at the EUROs in front of 87,192 fans - a record attendance for both the men and women’s EUROs final.

This game will be an important test for the Lionesses ahead of the Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand this July. Sarina Wiegman and current captain and WH January cover star, Leah Williamson, are hoping to add the Women’s Finalissima to their trophy cabinet before they kick off their World Cup run with their Group D opener on 22 July.

‘This is a chance to again test ourselves against another top 10 team in the world,' says Wiegman, ‘an opportunity to win another trophy and give our fans something special to watch.’

Ever since the Lionesses’ huge success at the EUROs, there have been major developments in the women’s game. Attendance figures for the domestic leagues have been higher than ever before with a new Women’s Super League attendance record of 47,367 set in September at the North London Derby between Arsenal and Spurs.

Now, with a sold out Finalissima just round the corner, it seems like the women’s game isn’t showing any signs of slowing down, and we’re so ready to see what our Lionesses get up to.
