In September, ticket packages for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019™ went on sale, and since then an impressive 45,000 packages have been sold (150,000 tickets).

FIFA Women’s World Cup™ fever is spreading around the world in the build-up to the tournament, which will set the stage for the world’s best players to compete in world-class venues across France. The biggest buyers of ticketing packages so far come from France and the USA (86 per cent).

The tournament will take place across nine Host Cities in France: Grenoble, Le Havre, Lyon, Montpellier, Nice, Paris, Reims, Rennes and Valenciennes, and each has reported brisk ticket sales.

Lyon, which will host the semi-finals (2-3 July) and the final (7 July), has already sold all of its packages for three matches, more than 22,000 (69,000 tickets). Single tickets will be available after the draw during the Visa pre-sale phase.

Ticket offers have been designed to highlight the stages of the tournament and the number of matches that each stadium will host. A total of nine different ticket packages are on offer so that fans can attend between three and seven matches, depending on which package they purchase.
