The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 welcomed its one millionth fan through the turnstiles today (Tuesday), for the match between Portugal and the US at Auckland’s Eden Park.

The crowd at Eden Park for the game between Portugal and the US, which ended goalless and saw the US progress to the knockout stages, helped to nudge the tournament’s attendance to over one million. Monday’s crowds had pushed the total to 982,795 after 38 matches. 

FIFA has also revealed that nearly 1.7 million tickets have now been sold, surpassing the 1.5 million target set before the tournament. 

The 1.5 million sales target was hit just over a week ago, and since then almost 200,000 more tickets have been sold. 

The final is still 19 days away and there are 22 matches to be played after today’s games. 

 Tickets for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 are still available to purchase. 

The World Cup is taking place across Australia and New Zealand, with the final schedule for August 20.
