SAINTS Women have set a new ticket sales record ahead of their Continental Cup clash with Women's Super League giants Arsenal.

Southampton FC welcome the Gunners, who reached the semi-finals of last season's Women's Champions League, to St Mary's on Thursday, November 23.

Current ticket sales have surpassed the 8,800 mark, which would beat the current attendance record of 8,121.

Speaking to the crowd in attendance at St Mary's for Southampton's Men's game against West Brom on Saturday, Spacey-Cale admitted she hopes the club can have 15,000 in attendance. 

Tickets are available at the cost of £5 for Adults and £1 for Under-18s.

Due to popular demand, the club have also opened their Staplewood Lounge alongside the Saints Bar, which includes a child-friendly option for supporters and their family to attend the match in comfort.

Arsenal currently sit second in the WSL and have a long list of international stars such as Beth Mead and Alessia Russo, who are key players for England.
