Wanda Metropolitano breaks world attendance record for women's club match

The Red & White fans broke a 99-year-old record.

The Wanda Metropolitano broke the world attendance record for a women's club match on Sunday as 60,739 fans gathered to watch the game between Atlético de Madrid and FC Barcelona.

The Red & White fans broke the previous record, which was set 99 years ago during a match between Dick, Kerr Ladies and St. Helen’s Ladies. The game was played on Boxing Day of 1920 and gathered 53,000 spectators at Goodison Park.

The attendance for Sunday's match also surpassed other impressive crowds such as the 51,211 fans that gathered to watch the last Liga MX Femenil final between Monterrey and Tigres and the 45,423 people that attended the 2018 FA Women's Cup final, in which Chelsea played Arsenal.

This last figure was surpassed on Jan. 30, when our team faced Athletic Club at San Mamés in front of 48,121 fans, setting the Spanish record for a women's club match at the time.
