“Where can I buy Matildas World Cup tickets?” That question is on the minds of many fans in Australia and New Zealand for the big event.
The 2023 Women's World Cup promises to be one of the best-attended women’s sporting events in history and tickets have been selling like hot cakes since going on sale in October 2022.
A collection of the World Cup’s early fixtures have already been sold out and with demand for seats starting to soar as pre-tournament excitement builds, more and more matchday tickets are being snapped up.
As one of the host nations, the scramble for Matildas’ tickets has been particularly intense and already Australia have had to upgrade venues for their tournament opener against the Republic of Ireland to satisfy demand.
However, there is still time to grab a ticket of your own to cheer the Matildas onto victory and below, we’ve got the lowdown on how you can purchase some FIFA Women’s World Cup tickets.
How to get Matildas World Cup tickets?
First of all, to bag any ticket, including Matildas World Cup tickets, fans must have a valid FIFA ticketing account. The registration process is a pretty straightforward series of steps that only takes a few minutes to complete.
Authorised tickets for the 2023 Women’s World Cup can only be purchased through FIFA’s official portal,.
Once your account is all set up and ready to rock, you can access tickets through one of three portals, which offer access to Australian residents through one, New Zealand residents through another and all international applicants through the third and final gateway.
All tickets for the tournament are listed online on FIFA’s website and they will remain there until they have completely sold out.
Ticket prices range in price and they start as low as just $15 for adults and $8 for children, though the cheapest seats could have obstructed views, so make sure to do your due diligence before taking the plunge.
If you’re after premium seats with the best views, then Category 1 tickets are the ones for you. They start at $40 for adults, while tickets for the World Cup final itself on August 23rd could set you back up to $120 a piece.
You can also pick up a ticket for resale on FIFA’s official resale platform, though there are protections in place to ensure that you aren’t scalped by people looking to flip tickets for a quick buck. FIFA have capped prices at 110% of the original value to keep costs under control in that section.
How many tickets have been sold for the Women’s World Cup?
While fully up-to-date accurate information isn’t readily available, we do know thanks to FIFA president Gianni Infantino, that just over one million tickets had been sold for the tournament as of June 9, so that figure is certain to be far loftier now.
The current record of 1.35m tickets sold for the Women’s World Cup in Canada back in 2015 is definitely under threat and attendances in 2023 should eventually set a new benchmark.
Which World Cup matches have sold out?
Below, we’ve listed some of the World Cup fixtures that are believed to be virtually sold out, while a considerable swathe of other games in the tournament have already been labelled as matches with “low availability” on FIFA’s website.
