Women’s World Cup Attendance Is Outperforming FIFA’s Expectations

Jul 29, 2023

The 2023 Women’s World Cup hasn’t even progressed through group play, but FIFA is already projecting higher attendance numbers than expected for the tournament.

Ticket sales are now close to 1.6 million, according to soccer’s governing body, which would easily surpass the record 1.35 million fans who attended the 2015 WWC in Canada. FIFA had been expecting to break that record, but its latest projections were around 1.5 million.

The USWNT has enjoyed packed houses for its first two games in New Zealand and now returns to Auckland for a potential must-win game against Portugal to secure first place in Group E over the Netherlands.
