Women’s World Cup 2023 breaks ticket sales record


The ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 has reached an unprecedented milestone in ticket sales as it nears the Round of 16 stage.

As the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 unfolds, the Round of 16 is on the horizon, and teams like USWNT, the Netherlands, and Spain have already guaranteed their spots in the next stage. Beyond the thrilling matches on the field, the tournament is creating history outside the stadium with its record-breaking ticket sales.

The growing appeal of women’s soccer has been evident in recent times, and this upward trend was anticipated to be mirrored in the Women’s World Cup hosted in New Zealand and Australia.

Spectators from all over the world have filled the stadiums, displaying immense passion and support for the sport. The tournament’s previous attendance record stood at approximately 1.35 million, achieved during the 52-game tournament in Canada in 2015. However, with an increased number of games (64 matches) and teams (32), the record for tickets sold has already been surpassed.
