Barcelona made history when they won the Women’s Champions League against Real Madrid with over 91,000 fans watching, which is a women’s football record.
A grand total of 91,553 were in attendance at the Camp Nou as Barca went down 5-2 winners on the night and 8-3 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.
The previous highest attendance for a women’s club game came in 2019 when 60,739 watched Barcelona win 2-0 against Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Wednesday night’s crowd at Europe’s biggest stadium also eclipsed the attendance record at a women’s international, set when 80,203 fans watched the United States win Olympic gold by beating Japan 2-1 at Wembley during London 2012.

Tickets for the clash at the 99,354-seat stadium were completely sold out and those who attended certainly got their money’s worth.
Real briefly threatened to spoil the party after Olga Carmona’s penalty and a fine strike from Claudia Zornoza saw them 2-1 up on the night following Mapi Leon’s early opener.
But Barcelona weren’t to be denied El Clasico bragging rights on a historic night.
Second-half goals from Aitana Bonmati, Claudia Pina, Ballon d’Or holder Alexia Putellas and Caroline Hansen comfortably got them through.
They will find out their semi-final opponents on Thursday when 2007 winners Arsenal travel to the Volkswagen Arena to take on Wolfsburg with a 1-1 draw after last week’s first leg.
