A record crowd of over 45,000 could attend the Women's FA Cup final between Arsenal and Chelsea this weekend...as Jonas Eidevall looks to maintain his 100 percent record against Emma Hayes

A record crowd is expected at Wembley for this weekend’s women’s FA Cup finalOver 45,000 tickets have been issued for Arsenal's FA Cup clash against ChelseaThe current record stands at 45,423 when it was the same two teams in 2018 This weekend's fixture will also mark the 50th anniversary of the competition 

A record crowd is expected at Wembley for this weekend’s women’s FA Cup final between Arsenal and Chelsea. 

Over 45,000 tickets have been issued for what is the 50th anniversary of the competition. 

The first final took place in 1971 after the 50-year ban on women playing the game had been lifted in the same year.

The current record stands at 45,423 when it was the same two teams – Arsenal and Chelsea – who played out the 2018 final, which the Blues won 3-1. 

However, this did not surpass the record set by Dick Kerr Ladies on Boxing Day, 1920. A crowd of 53,000 watched on at Goodison Park as they beat St Helens 4-0. 

Only Great Britain’s game against Brazil at the 2012 Olympics and England’s friendly with Germany in 2019 have surpassed that record in the UK. 

Sunday’s game is the final for the 2020-2021 campaign, which had to be put back due to delays caused by Covid-19. 

Arsenal have won the competition a record 14 times and their last triumph in the competition came against Chelsea in 2016, with Dan Carter (above) scoring the only goal of the game

Arsenal have won the competition a record 14 times and their last triumph in the competition came against Chelsea in 2016, with Dan Carter scoring the only goal of the game.

This will be new manager Jonas Eidevall’s first final in charge of the Gunners and he is looking to maintain his 100 percent record against Emma Hayes. 

His side beat Chelsea in pre-season before claiming a 3-2 victory on the opening day of the Women’s Super League campaign. 

The Blues have not lost since and have been in fine form with 21 goals in their last six games across all competitions.
