UEFA Women's EURO 2022 fittingly ended as it began – with a record crowd. A total of 87,192 spectators witnessed England's final triumph over Germany at Wembley Stadium, bringing the total aggregate attendance to over half a million for a tournament that set new benchmarks at every step of the way.

The previous record crowd for a Women's EURO game stood at 43,301 before a ball was kicked in England, that figure dating back to the 2013 final between Germany and Norway in Solna, Sweden. It was promptly smashed in the opening game of the 2022 edition as 68,871 fans turned out to watch England edge a 1-0 win against Austria.

Records continued to fall during the group stage, including the overall tournament record of 240,055 set at the 2017 finals. As the knockout rounds approached, the figure for the 2022 finals had reached 357,993, meaning that even if no one had attended a game from the quarter-finals onwards, the previous record average of 9,000 would have been comfortably beaten.

Instead, the bar was well and truly raised, with new benchmarks set in the last eight and semi-finals. Then, surpassing all those turnouts, the 87,192 fans who attended the final established a new record for a women's international game in Europe, while also taking the tournament total to 574,875 and the average crowd to 18,544 per game.
