FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023 Set a Record
FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, has announced that the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™ is set to make history as the most attended standalone women’s sporting event. With over 1 million tickets already sold for the highly anticipated tournament taking place next month, excitement is building worldwide.
Infantino expressed his delight, stating, “Delighted to share with the world that FIFA has passed one million tickets sold for this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup, to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand! As I write this, 1,032,884 tickets have been sold.
This means that with over one month to go before kick-off, we have surpassed the numbers sold for France 2019, thus meaning that Australia & New Zealand 2023 is on track to become the most attended FIFA Women’s World Cup in history. The future is women – and thanks to the fans for supporting what will be the greatest FIFA Women’s World Cup ever!”
Infantino further emphasized the growing momentum in the host countries and globally, inviting fans to witness the stars of women’s football shining on the world stage. He said, “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.”
The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 will commence on July 20 at Eden Park in Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau, with co-hosts New Zealand facing off against 1995 winners Norway. Simultaneously, Australia will take on the Republic of Ireland at Stadium Australia, the largest venue of the tournament, in Sydney/Wangal. In a proactive move earlier this year, FIFA shifted Australia’s inaugural match to Stadium Australia, ensuring over 100,000 fans can attend the opening matchday.
Tickets for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 can be purchased through FIFA.com/tickets. Additionally, fans seeking an enhanced experience can explore ticket-inclusive hospitality packages at FIFA.com/hospitality.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™ is shaping up to be a groundbreaking event, both in terms of attendance and the celebration of women’s football on a global scale.
