Record crowd expected when England women host Germany at Wembley.
England women are set to play in front of a record-breaking crowd in their historic match against Germany at Wembley Stadium after the FA confirm over 33,000 tickets sold.
This attendance will beat the previous record for an England women’s international football friendly in which just over 29,000 attended the Etihad Stadium to watch England play Finland in the 2005 European Championship.
The international friendly is part of England’s preparations for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2015 and will mark the first time England women’s team have played at the new Wembley.
England head coach Mark Sampson, who is leading his squad in training camp at St George’s Park, said: “This is a magnificent start to ticket sales and shows just what fantastic support there is out there for this team and for women’s football.
“We know it will be a great occasion, not just playing at Wembley but playing a team of Germany’s quality. These are exactly the sort of matches we want to be playing in preparation for next summer’s World Cup, against the best teams in the world.
“There is a big buzz around the team and staff today knowing how much support there is for us out there.”
England host Germany at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 23 November 2014 at 3pm (local time).
