Visa, the Official Payment Services Partner of FIFA, is the preferred payment method for FIFA Women’s World Cup ticket sales. The main buyers of tickets have been French (57% of sales), although a significant number of supporters from the USA (25%) and the UK (3%) have also been snapping up tickets. The three stadiums that have sold the most seats so far are Lyon (90,000), Paris (76,000) and Valenciennes (34,500). A total of 1.3 million tickets are available for this pinnacle of women’s sport and football fans who do not want to miss out should secure their seats as soon as possible.
