The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 is already set for success with six months to spare.

More than 500,000 tickets have been sold to the ninth edition of the tournament, which begins July 20, 2023, in Australia and New Zealand — the first co-hosted women’s tournament.

  • The final at Stadium Australia on Aug. 20 is the most “sought-after match.”
  • Australia’s opener against Ireland will reportedly move from Allianz Stadium to Accor Stadium, allowing nearly 40,000 more people to attend.
  • The competition marks the debuts of Morocco, Zambia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and the Republic of Ireland.

Ticket sales reportedly put the tournament on track to surpass 2019’s attendance record of 1.1 million in France.

Fans from more than 120 countries have purchased tickets, with the most coming from Australia, New Zealand, the U.S., England, and Qatar.

The 2023 edition will be the first with 32 teams — it previously only had 24 — with a record 64 matches played in 10 stadiums.

This year’s competition also has a new format. The first FIFA Women’s World Cup Playoff Tournament will be held in February and feature 10 countries competing for three spots.

Tournament Talks

Last month, FIFA announced new competitions for the women’s sport. 

Soccer’s global governing body revealed plans to introduce the FIFA Women’s Club World Cup and establish the FIFA Women’s Futsal World Cup. It also endorsed expanding the women’s tournament at the Olympics from 12 to 16.
