September 20 – Ticketing for the 2019 Women’s World Cup France was launched in Paris yesterday at the Montparnasse Tower. The 24-team championship, in its eighth edition, will be played from June 7 to July 7.
At a ceremony attended by FIFA President Gianni Infantino and French Football Association (FFF) and Local Organising Committee (LOC) President Noël Le Graët, emphasis was made of the affordability for fans with prices starting at just under €9 as part of a special €25 package allowing fans to attend three matches.
Infantino highlighted the 1.35 million spectators who bought tickets in Canada four years ago and said “we are working hard to ensure that a billion broadcast viewers tune in to follow all of the tournament action.”
General public ticket packages go on sale on October 19 on FIFA.com. Members of the French football family (national and regional leagues, clubs and licence holders) have a month of early access that is open now, to secure their tickets.
“With ticketing offers including 25 euro packages to see three matches, the average cost of a ticket amounts to less than nine euros, which I believe illustrates how accessible this FIFA Women’s World Cup will be to fans. We hope that the French fans here and the foreign fans who will travel to France to attend matches will appreciate our efforts to make this competition accessible to everyone,” said Le Graët.
France 2019 will played across nine cities: Grenoble, Le Havre, Lyon, Montpellier, Nice, Paris, Reims, Rennes and Valenciennes. The semi-finals and final will be played in Lyon.
