Next month’s FIFA Women’s World Cup is set to become the most attended standalone women’s sports event in history, with organisers confirming more than one million tickets have now been sold.
FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, revealed that 1,032,884 tickets have now been sold for the ninth edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, surpassing the total sales for France 2019.
“Delighted to share with the world that FIFA has passed one million tickets sold for this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand!” Infantino said.
“As I write this, 1,032,884 tickets have been sold. This means that with over one month to go before kick-off, we have surpassed the numbers sold for France 2019, thus meaning that Australia and New Zealand 2023 is on track to become the most attended FIFA Women’s World Cup in history.”
Most of the ticket sales have been in Australia.
Last week, FIFA told AFP that of the 930,000 tickets sold by then, New Zealand accounted for 220,000.
Since then, about 250,000 more tickets have been released for sale in New Zealand.
Infantino said history would be created.
“The future is women — and thanks to the fans for supporting what will be the greatest FIFA Women’s World Cup ever!
“The momentum is building in the host countries and across the globe, and I look forward to seeing you there to witness the stars of women’s football shine on the world stage,” he said.
