Going to a game at the FIFA Women’s World Cup? Here are some tips for fans

Tournament organisers have shared a list of ‘top tips’ for fans heading to the 29 matches being playing in New Zealand during the month-long FIFA Women’s World Cup.

FIFA’s tips are:

Get your tickets before match day

Tickets are not available for purchase at the stadium on the day, so make sure you purchase your ticket online at FIFA.Com/tickets before heading to the game.

FIFA will have people at the stadium to help with ticketing questions.

Download the FIFA Women’s World Cup ticketing app

Before game day, you will need to download the FIFA Women’s World Cup ticketing app from the Apple Store or Google Play.

Your tickets can be found in the app, and a barcode will appear at least three hours before kick-off to access free public transport and entry into the stadium.

In the FIFA ticketing app, you can share tickets with friends ahead of the game to support a quicker entry into the stadium.

It’s a good idea to make sure mobile phones are fully charged before heading to the game.

Just show your FIFA Women’s World Cup ticket on the ticketing app when travelling.

Get to the stadium early

Make the most of the last-mile fan zones and stadium atmosphere by getting to games early.

Upon entry to the stadium, everyone will have their bags searched and there will be security wanding of fans, so please be patient and give yourselves lots of time to get through the gates.

Make sure you are familiar with prohibited items.

To make stadiums safe and comfortable for everyone, there are restrictions on what fans can bring, including the size of bags.

These may differ from other events you’ve attended at the stadium, so please check before you leave.

Don’t forget stadiums are cashless

All FIFA Women’s World Cup stadiums are cashless, so to purchase food and drinks, merchandise and more, make sure to come prepared.

Once scanned into the venue, there will be no pass-outs, so you won’t be able to leave the stadium and return. Make sure you have everything and everyone you need before you enter.
