World football’s governing body FIFA has announced that individual match tickets for the 2019 Women’s World Cup will go on sale to the general public from March 7, with nearly one million seats still available for this summer’s showpiece.
France is staging the eighth edition of the Women’s World Cup from June 7 to July 7 and less than four months after the launch of ticket packages, which was followed by the exclusive Visa presale phase for Visa cardholders after the tournament draw, FIFA said that 330,000 tickets have been sold. Visa, the official payment services partner of FIFA, is the preferred payment method for Women’s World Cup ticket sales.
A total of 1.3 million tickets are available, with FIFA stating that the host nation (57%) has been responsible for the majority of sales to date, followed by the United States (25%). The three stadiums that have sold the most seats so far are the 58,215-seat Stade de Lyon (90,000), the 48,583-capacity Parc des Princes in Paris (76,000) and the 25,000-seat Stade du Hainaut in Valenciennes (34,500).
Individual prices will start at €9 (£8/$10) for category 4 tickets to all group matches, with the exception of the opening match. Ticket prices for this game, which will see the host country take on Korea Republic at the Parc des Princes, will start at €13 for category 4.
Along with Paris, Lyon and Valenciennes, the World Cup is also taking place in Grenoble, Le Havre, Montpellier, Nice, Reims and Rennes. Lyon will host the semi-finals (July 2-3) and the final (July 7), with prices for the latter ranging from €23 for category 4 to €84 for category 1.
