Adelaide United is delighted to announce it has set a new attendance record for a standalone regular-season Westfield W-League match.
5,159 supporters watched the Reds’ 3-1 win over Western Sydney Wanderers at Coopers Stadium on Sunday afternoon, in what was United’s final regular season match of the 2020/21 campaign.
The previous record for a standalone regular season fixture was 3,105 – recorded in 2016 – whilst the highest attendance for a standalone Finals Series game occurred in the 2018 Grand Final with 6,025.
Adelaide United Chief Executive Officer, Nathan Kosmina, praised the record attendance and said it was a reflection of the growth of women’s football and more broadly women’s sport in South Australia.
“We’re absolutely delighted to have broken the Westfield W-League attendance record,” Kosmina said. “This would not have been possible without the incredible support from SA Power Networks and My Money House.
“I’d also like to thank our members, fans, and the South Australian community for turning up in droves to cheer the team on.
“This attendance highlight’s the people of South Australia’s commitment and support of women’s football and in general women’s sport, which has never been stronger.
“We also hope this further strengthens our position that Adelaide and Coopers Stadium is a suitable venue to host FIFA Women’s World Cup matches in 2023.”
Adelaide United Women Head Coach, Adrian Stenta, said: “Today was a very special day for our Club.
“I’m extremely proud of the girls and their efforts in what has been our most successful season as a team.
“The support from our fans has been phenomenal all year, but to see a sea of red everywhere today was quite amazing and I’d like to thank everyone for coming to watch us.”
