WALES will break their attendance record for a home women’s international match in next month’s vital World Cup qualifier at Cardiff City Stadium after profiting from the exploits of England’s Lionesses.

Gemma Grainger’s side host Slovenia in the capital in their bid to finish as group runners-up to France and secure a spot in the play-offs for next year’s tournament.

Wales travel to Greece on September 2 before welcoming the third-placed Slovenians to the home of the Bluebirds on Tuesday, September 6 (kick-off 7.45pm).

Ticket sales have already passed 5,455 – the record that was set against Estonia in Llanelli last October – after the success of Euro 2022.

The Football Association of Wales has set a target of attracting a five-figure crowd to Cardiff City Stadium, much to the delight of the squad.

South Wales Argus:

“I’m so excited that the Red Wall are turning out in their numbers to support us, making history and more noise once again in this World Cup qualifying campaign,” said influential Sophie Ingle.

“It means the world to us as players, we couldn’t do what we do without you. The women’s game has had huge exposure with the recent Euros, and we can’t wait to see the effect of that in the Cardiff City Stadium.

“Hopefully it will be a huge night for Welsh football as we look to reach the play-offs for the first time, we are more motivated than ever.”

Clubs and schools across the country have already engaged in the group booking scheme, offering discounted junior tickets from £2 and adult tickets from £6. The group booking scheme is open until Wednesday August 24.
