Wembley Stadium will repeat its staging of the new ‘Finalissima’ football concept by hosting the first-ever edition for the women’s game, it has been announced today (Wednesday).
A joint venture between Europe and South America’s governing bodies, UEFA and CONMEBOL, the first-ever edition of the Women’s Finalissima will be played between the winners of Women’s Euro 2022, England, and the 2022 Copa América Femenina champions, Brazil, on April 6, 2023.
The match has been organised as part of the long-standing partnership between UEFA and CONMEBOL and comes on the back of highly successful final tournaments for both confederations in July this year. It will give both teams a chance to lift another trophy before heading to the FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand a few months later.
Tickets will go on sale on Monday, with prices starting from £7.50 (€8.66/$8.70) for children aged 16 or under and £15 for adults, meaning a family of four will be able to watch the game from £45.
The match follows the success of the men’s Finalissima, which saw Euro 2020 winners Italy fall 3-0 to Copa América champions Argentina in front of a sold-out Wembley crowd on June 1 this year.
This event marked the first time in 29 years that such a match had been held, with Diego Maradona’s Argentina defeating Denmark on penalties back in 1993.
