Tickets go on general sale as excitement builds for Women’s Basketball World Cup

Tickets for the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 have gone on sale today (Tuesday) ahead of the event in Australia later this year.

The International Basketball Federation (FIBA)’s flagship women’s event will return to Australia from September 22 to October 1 for the first time since 1994.

All 38 games will be held at the Sydney SuperDome and Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre.

The group phase will start with a bang, with the current number one side, the US, taking on Belgium and hosts Australia going up against France. The final phase will begin on September 29, culminating in the third-place game and final, a double-header ticket opportunity on October 1.

Ticketing packages are also available for basketball fans to purchase, including group phase, day pass and final phase options.

FIBA secretary general Andreas Zagklis said: “We are happy to reach another FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 milestone on the road to Sydney with this ticket launch, and we can feel the excitement building as we get closer to the September 22 tip-off.

“We hope basketball fans from around the world will secure their tickets so they can watch their favourite players take the court.”

FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 Local Organising Committee chief executive, Melissa King, said: “With under six months to go until the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup 2022 tips off, I’m delighted to see tickets going on sale to the public.

“It’s an exciting milestone as momentum continues to build for what is promising to be a highly entertaining event, filled with thrilling matchups and engaging fan activations.”

New South Wales’ Minister for Tourism and Sport, Stuart Ayres, added: “I’m absolutely thrilled that NSW is hosting the biggest international women’s basketball competition in the world. It’s a huge privilege to have this World Cup on Australian soil, the first time since 1994, and I hope it encourages thousands of girls and women to take up this fantastic team sport.”
