England Lioness Lioness Fran Kirby says a showcase clash between Chelsea and Tottenham is a “massive opportunity to build on the World Cup effect” and get more girls involved in grassroots football.

Almost all the tickets for the London derby have gone but 400 are being made available to Standard readers.

The Chelsea FC Women star believes next month’s derby at Stamford Bridge will fuel the “incredible interest” that has grown since the international tournament that ended in July.

We need to make sure that people want to keep coming to watch.” The London derby is on Sunday, September 8 with a 12.30pm kick-off.

Asked if she had seen an increase in interest in the women’s game since the World Cup, Kirby said: “We see it a lot on social media.

Forward Kirby, 26, one of the Lionesses who captured the nation’s hearts during England’s World Cup run to the semi-final, said: “It is a massive opportunity [and] we need to keep this interest running, not just internationally but domestically with club games.

That would make it the biggest-attended women’s league game in England since 1920, when 53,000 packed into Everton’s Goodison Park to watch a factory team from Preston play St Helens Ladies.
