Ticketing for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France was launched at the Montparnasse Tower in Paris yesterday, September 19 by FIFA President Gianni Infantino and French Football Association (FFF) and Local Organising Committee (LOC) President Noël Le Graët.
The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup will set the stage for the world’s best players to compete in world-class venues across France and tickets for the competition are intended to be accessible and affordable to encourage fans to be part of a true festival of women’s football. Prices will start at just under EUR 9 as part of a special EUR 25 package allowing fans to attend three matches.
Speaking at the ticketing launch event, FIFA President Gianni Infantino said, “An incredible month of football awaits fans in France next summer, as the 1.35 million spectators who bought tickets to the matches in Canada four years ago can testify. The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 will be an amazing competition and we are working hard to ensure that a billion broadcast viewers tune in to follow all of the tournament action. I’m delighted that on 19 October, fans will be able to secure their seats to experience the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, a country with such a rich history of women’s football.”
FFF and LOC President Noël Le Graët added, “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.”
