Fifa president Gianni Infantino is confident they will sell one million tickets for the Women’s World Cup in France, as football’s world governing body aims to reach a global television audience of one billion people during the tournament.
The latest figures reveal Fifa has allocated just over 941,000 tickets to fans around the world. Currently, it looks unlikely the attendance at this tournament would surpass the total attendance at the 2015 Women’s World Cup, in Canada, of 1,353,506.
20 matches have sold out with the bulk of sales to French citizens. The opening match, France v Republic of Korea, to be held in Paris at the Parc des Princes on Friday June 7th, sold out in 48 hours, as did both semi-finals and the final, all of which will be held at the Stade de Lyon.
The next games to sell out were Netherlands v Cameroon on June 15th at Valenciennes, Nigeria v France on June 17th at Rennes and Sweden v the United States on June 20th at Le Havre.
