WALES aim to capitalise on England’s Euro 2022 success with a record crowd against Slovenia next month.
The Football Association of Wales revealed there has been a surge in ticket sales since the Lionesses’ 2-1 final triumph over Germany at Wembley on Sunday.
And the attendance has already surpassed Wales’ current record of 5,455 – set against Estonia last October.
But the FAW want to make more history and have set an ambitious 10,000 crowd target for the Cardiff City clash on September 6 as they bid to book a World Cup play-off spot.
Chelsea’s Sophie Ingle is a team-mate of England stars Millie Bright and Fran Kirby.
And the Wales captain said: “I’m so excited that the Red Wall are turning out in their numbers to support us, making history and more noise once again in this World Cup qualifying campaign.
“It means the world to us as players, we couldn’t do what we do without you.
“The women’s game has had huge exposure with the recent Euros and we can’t wait to see the effect of that in the Cardiff City Stadium.
“Hopefully it will be a huge night for Welsh football as we look to reach the play-offs for the first time, we are more motivated than ever.”
Ingle and her Welsh team-mates are bidding to follow Gareth Bale and co by reaching a World Cup.

The Dragons hope to make history by booking a play-off spot for the first time.
Wales face a trip to Greece on September 2 before they host Slovenia in Cardiff.
And four points in the World Cup qualifiers would be enough to guarantee their place in the play-offs.
