This yr’s Ladies’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand is on monitor to change into essentially the most attended standalone girls’s sporting occasion ever with over a million tickets offered, FIFA stated on Thursday.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino stated the ninth version of the Ladies’s World Cup, which begins on July 20th, has offered 1,032,884 tickets, surpassing the earlier event in France in 2019.
“The future is women, thanks to the fans for supporting what will be the greatest FIFA Women’s World Cup ever!” Infantino stated in a press release.
“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.”
FIFA had already introduced that Australia’s opening match in opposition to Eire will change venue to the 83,500-capacity Stadium Australia, the event’s largest stadium, attributable to excessive public demand for tickets.
It will enable as much as 100,000 followers to attend the World Cup’s opening video games, with the match between co-hosts New Zealand and Norway happening hours earlier than in Auckland.
