National record for PSG-OL, more than 37,000 tickets sold at the Parc des Princes

What if the Parc des Princes was sold out for the Champions League semi-final return between PSG and OL on Saturday? It is even very likely. Three days before the shock, more than 37,000 tickets have already found takers, ensuring the Parisian arena a national attendance record for a women’s club football match.

The previous mark for a club match in France was held by OL, already during a shock against PSG, in November 2019 with 30,661 spectators, in the league. Marie-Antoinette Katoto’s teammates, beaten 3-2 in the first leg in Lyon, are playing their tenth match at the Parc des Princes and had already recorded their own record in the quarter-finals against Bayern Munich on March 30 (2-2 ), with 27,262 spectators.

More than 90,000 spectators at Camp Nou

During the Women’s World Cup in 2019, the Parc des Princes had already welcomed more spectators, especially during the quarter-final lost by Les Bleues against the United States (2-1), in front of 45,595 people. On French soil, the final of this World Cup-2019 between the United States and the Netherlands (2-0) brought together 57,900 spectators, at Groupama Stadium in Lyon.

These figures are still far from the world record for an official women’s match, recorded on Friday at Camp Nou during the other C1 semi-final between Barcelona and Wolfsburg, with 91,648 spectators.
