Euro 2022 has broken the record for overall attendance at a women’s European Championship – despite still being in the group stage.
Euro 2017 in the Netherlands was attended by a total of 240,055 fans, the previous record.
But the 8,173 who watched France beat Belgium 2-1 in Rotherham brought these euros to a total of 248,075 fans.
There are 15 games left – including a likely record crowd for the Wembley final.
England’s 1-0 win over Austria in the tournament’s opener was followed by a record 68,871 at Old Trafford, 27,570 ahead of the previous record when Germany beat Norway in the 2013 final in Solna, Sweden.
The 28,847 spectators who watched England beat Norway 8-0 in Brighton are fourth.
There was also a record for a group game without the hosts as 21,342 spectators watched the 1-1 draw between the Netherlands and Sweden in Sheffield.
The average number of spectators in the previous 16 games is 15,505.
