The FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023 is on track to become the most attended standalone women’s sporting event in history, with over a million tickets sold.
Some 1,032,884 tickets have now been sold for the FIFA Women’s World Cup, surpassing the total sales for France 2019.
In a post on Instagram, FIFA president Gianni Infantino said: “Delighted to share with the world that FIFA has passed one million tickets sold for this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
“As I write this, 1,032,884 tickets have been sold. This means that with over one month to go before kick-off, we have surpassed the numbers sold for France 2019, thus meaning that Australia & New Zealand 2023 is on track to become the most attended FIFA Women’s World Cup in history. The future is women – and thanks to the fans for supporting what will be the greatest FIFA Women’s World Cup ever.
“The momentum is building in the host countries and across the globe, and I look forward to seeing you there to witness the stars of women’s football shine on the world stage.”
Auckland’s Eden Park (pictured) is set to host the opening game on July 20, with New Zealand taking on Norway. Later the same day, Australia will take on Republic of Ireland at Sydney’s Accor Stadium.
Earlier this year, Australia’s opening match was moved to Accor Stadium (also known as Stadium Australia) from the 42,500-capacity Allianz Stadium due to a demand for tickets. Accor Stadium has a capacity of 82,500.
Tickets and ticket-inclusive hospitality packages for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 are still available for fans to purchase.
To mark 25 days to go until kick off, Sydney Harbour Bridge is also set to turn into a festival of football on June 25.
