Wembley sold out for Women’s Finalissima between England and Brazil as Lionesses’ popularity continues to soar after Euros victory

    Women’s football continues to take off in England with the Lionesses selling out Wembley Stadium again for their upcoming clash against Brazil.

    The two footballing nations will do battle in the first-ever female edition of the Finalissima – a contest between the European champions and Copa America winners.

    Wembley will be packed to the rafters again with fans desperate to watch the history-making Lionesses

    It will give the Lionesses a chance to continue their unprecedented success with another trophy, with the match set to go ahead in April at the Home of Football.

    But fans still without tickets hoping to get a chance to watch the game will be disappointed, after the FA revealed on Tuesday that only hospitality packages remain.

    Sarina Wiegman’s side sent the nation mad over women’s football last summer during the Women’s Euros in 2022.

    The Lionesses played in front of huge crowds throughout the home tournament, who roared them to success as they beat Germany in the final.

    Demand for tickets appears to have stuck around after the latest match sold out against Brazil – but that is not the only one.

    England sold out when they faced the United States at Wembley last year, while Women’s Super League sides have reported an increase in ticket sales during domestic games.

    In December, Lionesses hero Beth Mead won the BBC Sports Personality of the Year, becoming the first female footballer to do so.

    The Arsenal forward scored six goals at the Euros to push England to victory, though has since been cruelly injured after rupturing her anterior cruciate ligament.

    Speaking after winning the award, her plea for women’s sport to continue growing appears to be on its way to being fulfilled.

    She said last month: “I wouldn’t have done it without those girls over there and the team that have backed me. Yes, I’ve got this accolade, I did my job, I scored a few goals but I wouldn’t have done it without them.

    “And I certainly wouldn’t have done it without my mum, my dad and all my family.

    “But most of all, this is for women’s sport, and for women’s sport heading in the right direction. So let’s keep pushing girls and let’s keep doing the right thing.”
