Women’s World Cup tickets on a high

4 June, 2023



Organisers of the 2023 Fifa Women’s World Cup, which starts in 50 days, say they are closing in on one million ticket sales.

More than 850,000 have been sold for the event in Australia and New Zealand.

“2023 is going to be a landmark moment for women’s football,” said Fifa secretary general Fatma Samoura.

The World Cup, which features 32 nations, including England and the Republic of Ireland, starts on 20 July with the final on 20 August.

A Fifa spokesperson told BBC Sport that the one million tickets sold milestone was expected to be reached “over the next few weeks”.

2023 is the ninth edition of the Women’s World Cup and organisers are targeting a record 1.5 million ticket sales as well as a global television audience of two billion viewers. (BBC Sport)
