Over 41,000 tickets have been sold for the Nov. 23 friendly between England and Germany at Wembley Stadium, according to British reports, meaning the women’s team’s first match there is on pace to outdraw a recent England men’s team’s home match.
The England men drew 40,181 fans in a 1-0 win over Norway on Sept. 3. It was the team’s smallest crowd since the new Wembley Stadium opened, although the Three Lions drew 55,990 fans for a Euro 2016 home qualifier vs. San Marino on Oct. 9 in a 5-0 win.
In 2005 the England women drew 29,092 fans to Manchester’s Ethiad Stadium. That stands as their largest crowd to date.
England will play at Germany at a date to be determined. Germany saw its 18-game winning streak snapped by France last weekend, but the Germans got back on track on Wednesday, beating Sweden, 2-1.
