Ian Wright has called on fans to fill stadiums, with some WSL tickets less than £5.

It’s come home – England are Euro 2022 champions. But what next?

Nearly 90,000 fans watched the Lionesses lift the trophy at Wembley after their 2-1 win over Germany on Sunday.

Now, attention is turning to how the women’s game can capitalise on such an historic moment.

After the game, which sparked jubilant celebrations across the country, Ian Wright told the BBC the main challenge is to attract bigger crowds.

The Arsenal legend said greater numbers of fans needed to attend domestic matches in the Women’s Super League (WSL) to boost its profile, and to encourage youngsters to take up the sport.

"What we want to see is we want people to be able to go to the WSL games,” Wright said.

“We want to make it easier for those people to go to the WSL games.”

“The players want fans in those stadiums,” the pundit continued.

“You've got to make it easier for them to get there. Why don't they have an away end allocation?

“Why do I as an Arsenal fan have to be a member of all the WSL teams to get to an away game?

“They've got to remove those barriers."

Where can I buy WSL tickets?

Tickets can be purchased on each of the team’s websites, which are all available via the FA here.

This includes for the top division, the Barclays WSL, and the second division, the Barclays Women’s Championship.

Anfield, Stamford Bridge and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have been lined up to host games next season, in a move to attract larger crowds.

One of the standout games in the capital, for instance, will see Arsenal host Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, 25 September for the north London derby.
