Brighton and Hove Albion are aiming to set a domestic league attendance record for a women’s match when they face Charlton Athletic at the Amex Stadium on Sunday December 6th.

The fixture will see the Seagulls’ women side play at the Championship ground for the first time.

Manchester City hold the current record of 3,180 for their Women’s Super League clash against Notts County last month.

Albion chairman Tony Bloom told the club’s official website: “We would love to beat that attendance record when we play our first-ever women’s game at the Amex later this year, and I hope our fans can help us achieve that.

“The interest in the club’s women’s team has seen significant growth in recent seasons, and that is credit to Tracy Doe, James Marrs and the team.

“The football James’s team produce is great to watch, and I hope a decent number of our fans will support the team at the Amex for the game on the 6th December.”

Both sides are fighting for promotion from the Southern Division. Charlton are second and Brighton are third, both on 26 points.

The Sussex club are doing some fantastic prices for the match with tickets priced at £4 for adults, £2 for under-18s and £10 for a family of four (two adults and two under-18s). Brighton season-ticket holders get in for free.
