FC Barcelona Femeni makes unbelievable sales for El Clasico

While the men’s team is struggling massively, the FC Barcelona women’s team is dominating. They won the league last season and added the UEFA Women’s Champions League trophy to their collection, after winning it for the first time in 2021.

As a result of their domestic dominance, fans of the women’s team are showing their support now. There’s a UEFA Women’s Champions League clash between FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, a very high-profile game, on January 18th.

The tickets for the game sold out in three days, which is a huge accomplishment considering the fact that a total of 85,000 tickets were sold for the game in Camp Nou. It’s an amazing accomplishment and just shows how far women’s football has come in terms of support and marketability.
