In an exciting finish, the Women’s World Cup ended with Spain beating England in the final 1-0. It was a very successful tournament in Australia and New Zealand, as the 2023 tournament set an all-time attendance record.
Before the tournament, there were already over 1 million tickets sold, leading FIFA to expect the total attendance record to be broken. However, the 2023 Women’s World Cup turned out to be even more popular than FIFA could have imagined.
The mark of 1.5 million figure was broken by the Round of 16 and attendance only grew in the final rounds.
Women’s World Cup Attendance Record
The Women’s World Cup attendance record was broken in Australia. Thanks to the expanded format with 32 teams playing 64 games, attendance reached an all-time high.
After the first two matches in the Round of 16, the Women’s World Cup set a new record for the biggest attendance in tournament history at 1.98 million fans. The previous best attendance in history was held in 2015 in Canada with a total of 1.35 million. However, there were only 52 matches at the time.
Not all games were a huge hit though.
To respond to the low demand for some games, organizers in New Zealand gave away as many as 20,000 tickets.
