Barcelona Femeni once again looking to break records

Women’s football has been neglected for a long time. Although football is considered as the most popular sport in the world, the disparity between the popularity of the male version and the female version is alarming. Not only does the female side get lower payments but they also get lower viewership due to unjustified prejudice formed via a patriarchal society that continues to embed gender norms within the community. This, however, has been completely flipped by the Barcelona Femeni side, the current champions of Europe. In their latest match against Real Madrid, the Catalans managed to pull in a whopping 91 thousand fans to the stadium and they are looking to break that record already.

Barcelona Femeni is challenging the footballing world and breaking records left and right

The 91 thousand fans that showed up to support their team and the women who have dedicated their lives to the sport, broke the record for the highest attendance at a women’s football match. It was a huge achievement, not only for Barcelona but for women’s football as well. Now, it seems like the Catalan girls might break the record again, as it has been reported that 50,000 tickets have already been sold for their Semi-finals match against Wolfsburg.

These 50,000 tickets were only sold to club members and the rest of the tickets will be sold tomorrow. According to reports, the tickets were sold out in less than a day which shows us that the Catalan fans are truly ready to support their club. At the end of the day, football unites us. The beautiful game has been uniting people for over a century and we cannot have a gender divide. Football is football, no matter who plays and the true fans of the club will support both the men’s team and the women’s team.

It is great to see that fans are more open-minded these days and we cannot wait to see how women’s football will progress in the years to come.
