FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 is on track to become the most attended standalone women’s sporting event in history, with over one million tickets now sold.

FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, revealed that 1,032,884 tickets have now been sold for the ninth edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, surpassing the total sales for France 2019.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 will kick off at Eden Park in Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau on Thursday, 20 July, with co-hosts New Zealand up against 1995 winners Norway.

Later the same day, Australia will take on Republic of Ireland at Stadium Australia, the tournament’s largest venue, in Sydney/Wangal. Earlier this year, FIFA took the proactive step to shift Australia’s inaugural match to Stadium Australia, ensuring over 100,000 fans will be able to attend the opening matchday of this year’s tournament.
