On the viewing front the gap will close in the coming years and as for attendances perhaps you should look at these links as the womens game becomes more and more popular.

Re: ESPN, BT, Euro, Premier and Sky Sports news

Not to be unnecessarily critical of the women’s game but often these attendances are inflated by free tickets.

That’s a world apart from tens of thousands of paying customers at £30-40 a ticket.
