England's match against Germany at Wembley in November has sold out

All tickets have been sold for England Women’s record-breaking match with Germany at Wembley Stadium connected by EE on Saturday 9 November.

It means the attendance on the day is set to far exceed the 45,619 that were in attendance for a previous meeting between the same two nations in November 2014.

That Wembley occasion set a new record for an England home fixture which has remained ever since.

There is a chance the crowd on the day could even top the 80,023 that was the biggest turn-out for a women’s game in this country. That came when USA beat Japan 2-1 to claim gold at London 2012.

Sue Campbell, FA director of women’s football, said: “This is a magnificent show of support for the squad and staff after a tremendous year of progress for the England team.

“My thanks go to everyone who has bought a ticket as we never take such support for granted.

“We started the year with success at the SheBelieves Cup, had a wonderful World Cup including securing Olympic qualification and it is only fitting that we get to end 2019 on a high – and can also say our own thank you to those who have backed us all the way.

“What will make it even more special is to see everyone who has bought a ticket turn up on the day to help smash the all-time record.”
