The north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur has smashed the Women's Super League (WSL) attendance record at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

A record crowd of 47,367 turned out to watch Arsenal thrash Spurs 4-0 thanks to a Vivianne Miedema brace and goals from Beth Mead and Rafaelle.

The previous record was 38,262 which was set at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the 2019 north London derby. Ticket sales for Saturday's match had already surpassed that figure on Sept. 1, Arsenal announced.

Arsenal also confirmed that 53,757 tickets were sold for Saturday's derby.

This follows a record-breaking Women's European Championship campaign that saw 87,192 fans packed into Wembley Stadium for England's victory in the final, setting a Euros attendance record.

Kelly Simmons, The English FA's director for the Women's Professional Game, said: "After a stunning summer that saw packed out stadiums to watch the Lionesses during the UEFA Women's Euro, we were really confident that we'd see a new record attendance early on in this season's Barclays Women's Super League.
