Excitement has stepped up ahead of next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada after tickets officially went on sale, allowing fans to snap up their tickets for what is sure to be an intriguing tournament. Held across six host cities throughout Canada, the Women’s World Cup will see the greatest players in the game compete for the sport’s biggest prize. Coming four years after a sensational 2011 World Cup in Germany, the pressure is on Canada to host another fantastic event.
With women’s football at an all-time high in terms of popularity, the World Cup is a chance for the sport to showcase their talents to an audience that wouldn’t have previously seen it. The 2011 World Cup was a real standout tournament for the women’s game, with Japan winning their first title following a thrilling penalty shootout victory over the USA in the final, and the reigning champions will again be right up there in the football betting odds next year.
The success of Germany four years ago has certainly helped play a part in the excitement ahead of next year’s event, and tickets will be very popular with Canadians and fans planning on travelling to North America next year to support their team ahead of the June 6 kick-off.
“The FIFA Women’s World Cup is the pinnacle of international football, featuring the best of the best in a 24-nation, 52-match final competition,” said Victor Montagliani, Chair of the National Organising Committee for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
“This is your opportunity to be part of a once-in-a-lifetime experience with final matches to be played in our six Canadian host cities: Vancouver, British Columbia; Edmonton, Alberta; Winnipeg, Manitoba; Ottawa, Ontario; Montreal, Quebec; and Moncton, New Brunswick.”
So, if you’re planning a trip to Canada next summer, why not book your ticket to the tournament and watch some of the best players in the women’s game.
