What perform for a stage to the great sport of football! On Sunday welcomed Atletico Madrid to the top of his game with FC Barcelona. A little over 60,000 spectators came to the Estadio Metropolitano. They were witnesses of a high-class football game, the game won inside of the FC Barcelona 2:0.
Yes, you read that right, it is about women's football. This is for a lot of men still a contradiction in itself, because football men invented and only of them has been played, and because it belongs in many a convivial round is still good form to comment mocking this failed action by a goalkeeper or those unsuccessful free kick a player.
In Madrid, at least all the mistakes will not keep the people away from a football game. The 60.739 spectators from Sunday are unmatched in club football, the women. A few weeks previously had seen of 48,000 spectators in a game of women in Bilbao.
But the Numbers from Spain should not give the impression that the top football of the women is on the rise everywhere. No not in this country. To prove this, a view on the past weekend. The big match on Sunday between FC Bayern Munich and Turbine Potsdam (final score: 5:0) followed almost 1,200 spectators in Munich. This is a sobering number, and it still remains significantly above the medium. So 690 people visited in the past season, on average, just once a game in Munich, League-wide, there were nearly 850 Fans.
these are measly, frightening statistics. Especially since they do not reflect that women's football in Germany, excited in width. Meanwhile, around one Million girls and women in German football are organised on a Federal. Women's football is accepted by society for a long time.More about

But in the top of the interest goes back since 2013. The reasons are manifold: The League of twelve teams is too small. But above all, the level differences are much too large. VfL Wolfsburg and Bayern Munich are marching lonely in front, often their games end with a margin of eight or nine gates. Hope that makes eight of the twelve Teams are tied in the men's-license clubs and their infrastructure. So there remains much to do in the German women's football, so he will not be ridiculed in a sociable round men.
