From strength to strength: The World Cup is set to break attendance records.

The 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand is on track to beat current attendance records for women’s sport, with an incredible 1 million tickets already sold for the summer tournament.

With 5 weeks until the summer tournament kicks off, FIFA president Gianni Infantino announced that, as of last week, 1,032,884 tickets have been sold. This is more than France 2019!

Infantino speaks fondly on the tournament, and of women’s football as a whole, in which he highlights the exciting time we are living in in the women’s game:

“The future is women”.

The 2015 World Cup in Canada attracted the current record for a standalone women’s sports event, as it attracted 1.35 million spectators. The 2019 World Cup in France dropped slightly in supporters to 1.13 million. Therefore, this World Cup is set to be the biggest one yet.

When taking a look back to the Euro’s last summer, the final at Wembley Stadium attracted 87,192 fans- which established a new record for a women’s international game in Europe. This is likely to be the first of many high attendances in the women’s game, due to the impressive amount of tickets sold.

Seeing young footballers inspired by not only what the Lionesses did in the summer but also what they’ve achieved for the game, is extremely exciting and hopeful for the next generation. Something that this World Cup can continue to grow.

Over 1 million tickets sold with over a month to go- how many more tickets can be sold before July 20th?!
