Women's Euro 2022: All remaining tickets for final sell out in 43 minutes

Tickets for the Euro 2022 final at Wembley managed to sell out within 43 minutes of being on general sale, and may set a new record for a European Championship final in terms of attendance.

To commemorate 100 days before the tournament begins at Old Trafford on 6 July, all remaining tickets for the finals went on general sale on Monday at 8 a.m. (EAT). Since July 2021, those who have pre-registered for tickets have had additional possibilities to acquire tickets.

UEFA confirmed at 10:43 a.m. (EAT) that tickets for the final at Wembley on 31 July had sold out.

"Demand was extremely high for the Final and all available tickets have now sold out," the UEFA Women's Euro 2022 official ticketing account wrote on Twitter.

"Additional tickets may be released at a later date however this is not guaranteed."

It was revealed less than an hour later that England's match against Northern Ireland at St Mary's on July 15 had also sold out. The encounter is the pair's last group stage match, with Northern Ireland's women's team making their first participation at a major event.

There is a chance for a new all-time attendance record at any European Championship final in history - male or female - with all available tickets for the final sold, more perhaps closer to the time, and total capacity at 90,000.

The current attendance record is 79,115, which was established at the Bernabeu in 1964 for the final between Spain and the Soviet Union. Spain, the hosts, won 2-1.
