FIFA has informed that ticket sales for the upcoming Women's World Cup are going very well. Tickets for matches have been purchased by fans from more than 120 countries, and there is still more than six months to go before the competition begins.
This year's FIFA Women's World Cup tournament will kick off on 20 July and run until 20 August. Defending the title, with a chance of a third consecutive triumph, will be the Americans. This will be the first FIFA Women's World Cup to have more than one host country, and the first senior one for either genders to be held in more than one confederation, as Australia is in the Asian Confederation and New Zealand is in the Oceania Confederation.

The opening match will be played between New Zealand and Norway at Eden Park, Auckland, on 20 July. The final will take place a month later at Stadium Australia (known as Accor stadium for sponsorship reasons) in Sydney.

FIFA Secretary General, Fatma Samoura, said that the ticketing process for the tournament has got off to a great start. More than 500,000 passes have been sold to fans from around the world. Apart from the host nations, the United States, England, Qatar, Germany, China, Canada, the Republic of Ireland and France are so far on the list of the countries indicating highest demand for tickets.

Samoura added that this case reflects the growing value of women's football and the great enthusiasm that is growing among fans around the world who want to be part of the championship. Attendance at the World Championships is therefore looking really promising so the upcoming tournament will have a chance to break the previous record if sales continue at the same rate. The previous event held in France in 2019 attracted 1,131,762 fans to come to the arenas.
