Who has won the most Women’s FA Cup titles? List of past winners of finals after Man United beat Tottenham in 2024 | Sporting News United Kingdom

The Women’s FA Cup final has become one of the most-watched title matches in the world in recent seasons as the female game has continued to grow.

The 2023 final at Wembley Stadium drew a crowd of 77,390 spectators, smashing the previous record by nearly 30,000. A peak television audience of 1.4 million tuned in to watch the game live in the United Kingdom alone. That day, Manchester United suffered defeat in their very first final, losing 1-0 to Chelsea courtesy of a goal from Australia star Sam Kerr.

In 2024, United returned and landed their very first piece of major silverware, thrashing Tottenham 4-0 in front of a crowd of 76,082 in London. Ella Toone and Rachel Williams scored before Lucia Garcia struck twice all in the first half-hour of the second half, prompting jubilation for the Red Devils.

Of course, United have a long way to go before they can match the most successful sides in Women’s FA Cup history. Here, The Sporting News looks back at the past winners of the tournament.
