Women’s Football Eidevall highlights impressive ticket sales ahead of North London Derby

ARSENAL Women’s boss Jonas Eidevall has hailed supporters after more than 51,000 tickets have already been sold for the clash against Spurs. 

Saturday lunchtime’s North London Derby clash at Ashburton Grove could smash the all-time domestic attendance record, with Eidevall praising such tremendous backing. 

While the modern-day record crowd was posted when Joe Montemurro’s Arsenal beat Spurs 2-0 at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in November 2019, hopes are high the historic total will be beaten.

In 1920, Goodison Park hosted 53,000, when Dick Kerr Ladies played St Helens Ladies before the FA scandalously outlawed women playing the game.

Highlighting the impressive sales, Eidevall said: “It’s not giveaways or discounts, it’s sold tickets.

“I think that’s really, really special because doing this the way the club has done it means it’s sustainable. 

“It shows that the interest there is for real.”
