39,000 Fans Turn Out At Allianz Stadium For Juventus Women Vs Fiorentina Women

For the first time in history today, Juventus' women's team played at the Allianz Stadium and a record 39,000 fans were there to witness the 1-0 victory.

The Bianconeri hosted Fiorentina in a top of the table clash in Turin and thanks to the sell-out crowd, the atmosphere looked absolutely incredible for the historic game.

Prior to today, the record for a women's game in Italy had been 14,000 but Juve fans completely obliterated the record and long may the growth of women's football in Italy continue.

It follows on from some great things happen in women's football in Spain, where the world record for the amount of fans at a women's football game was set just a week ago.

Athletic Bilbao broke the attendance record at the end of January when 48,121 supporters attended their Copa de la Reina game against Atletico at San Mames.

Then, a whopping 60,739 fans watched Atletico Madrid host Barcelona at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Atletico, who are current leaders of the Primera Division, were eventually beaten by Barca thanks to goals from Asisat Oshoala and Toni Duggan.

To boost attendance figures, tickets for the match were available for free to club members, and €5 for the general public, according to ESPN.

Women's football is seriously thriving at the moment and the upcoming World Cup in France promises to be very special.
