Women’s Stockholm Derby Breaks All-Time Attendance Record In Sweden’s Damallsvenskan

Over 18,000 fans came out to support their women’s teams.

The Hammarby vs AIK attendance during Sunday’s Damallsvenskan set a record for the largest turnout during a women’s game in Sweden. A total of 18,537 fans packed into Tele2 Arena.

The Stockholm derby saw Hammarby jump to fifth in the league while AIK sits second from the bottom after a 4-1 victory for Hammarby.

There wasn’t any trophy on the line or battle for key spots, fans simply turned out for their women’s teams.

The record comes two months after the NWSL set its all-time attendance record at Lumen Field in Seattle when 27,278 fans watched OL Reign defeat the Portland Thorns 2-1.

Spain’s women’s league still holds the largest turnout in history for a women’s club soccer game. In March 2019 Atlético Madrid and Barcelona played in front of 60,739 fans.

The highest attendance for a women’s club game in North America goes to Liga MX Femenil when over 40,000 people watched Tigres vs. Monterrey.
