German Bundesliga Women Champions, VfL Wolfsburg is expecting a five-digit number of spectators in this year’s second Bundesliga game in the Volkswagen Arena.
The club announced on Monday, 10,000 tickets have been sold for the top game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday. The Wolves have won all eight league games this season and are top of the table.
In addition to two games in the UEFA Women’s Champions League, which were played in the men’s arena this year, the women from Lower Saxony attracted 21,297 fans to the arena in October when they beat Bayern Munich 2-1 in the top game. The team usually plays its matches in the neighboring AOK stadium.

Women’s football is currently experiencing a surge in popularity and stadium attendance: at the weekend, the women of Werder Bremen set club records with 20,417 spectators in the Weser Stadium and 1. FC Köln with 5,400 spectators in the Franz Kremer Stadium.
The league record was reached at the start of the current season with 23,200 fans in the game between Frankfurt and Bayern Munich.
Former German international, Katja Kraus would quickly wish for more women in professional and million-dollar football business. “Societal pressure has increased over the past two years, but it’s still going too slowly. If you really want change, then you have to honestly deal with the obstacles,” Kraus told the German Press Agency during the World Cup in Qatar.

For the first time, three women referees are taking part in the FIFA World Cup, and Christina Graf is also the first ARD commentator at the World Cup.
For the 52-year-old Kraus, this can only be the first step. “It goes without saying that women have the expertise to talk about the game or to direct games. It will be better for women when they are no longer the only woman in their respective roles and are therefore subjected to a special assessment,” said Kraus, who is also a co-founder of the “Football can do more” reform movement.
Once there are enough women and it’s more about performance, “then we’re much further along,” added Kraus.
