FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 record-breaking ticket & hospitality sales

Women's world cup 2023 hospitality

From record-breaking ticket sales, attendance and sales for Women’s World Cup 2023 hospitality, to the spectacular on-pitch skills – and culminating in Spain lifting the tournament trophy at the thrilling Final – the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™ certainly lived up to its slogan of ‘Beyond Greatness’. 

Looking back at this incredible event, hosted jointly by Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, several new records were achieved right from the start, with the growth in participating teams from 24 to 32. Even before the concluding weekend, FIFA had already confirmed 1.77 million tickets sold, and revenue in excess of USD $570-million, as well as a prize pot of USD $110 million.

Official Hospitality also demonstrated strong growth in interest and sales, with the commercial value of sales more than doubling from FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™, and the number of commercial hospitality packages delivered showing a 45% increase.
