Millie Bright column: Women’s football getting bigger – we want to reach level of men’s game

These addons are fancy!!

Chelsea and England defender Millie Bright has been writing columns for the BBC Sport website throughout the summer.This weekend showed where women’s football can go. I hope it excites the fans because it sure does excite the players.Even our families and friends that attended our first Women’s Super League game of the season against Tottenham on Sunday were saying “wow, you’re playing at Stamford Bridge” because it’s a change from playing at Kingsmeadow.We are getting bigger and bigger and eventually we want to be at the same level as the men’s game in terms of playing in big stadiums more regularly, but we need fans to keep buying in, coming to matches and filling them.We know it won’t happen straight away but we have shown the quality we have got. This is where we have to drive for women’s football to grow. We talk a lot about increasing the number of people who attend games but in order to do that we have to be at bigger stadiums.Even with 25,000 in a 40,000-seater Stamford Bridge I felt there was an atmosphere. I could hear the fans throughout the whole game. When the goal went in it was electric!It was a really special occasion. It’s an honour to know that the club put this on for us. The numbers are only going to grow.We want more days like this. It will definitely be on
