Due to the low level of interest shown by New Zealand citizens, FIFA have decided to act.

20,000 more tickets have been made freely available in advance of the Women’s World Cup. This is in an effort to ensure that all available seats are taken by the time the tournament starts.

The majority of the one million tickets that have been sold so far have been purchased by fans in Australia, who believe that their national side has a good chance of taking home the trophy.

As the official partner of the FIFA Women’s Football tournament, Xero is giving away 5,000 tickets. Thesse include matches beginning on July 20 in Dunedin, Wellington, Hamilton, and Auckland.

The Football Ferns have failed to win a match in five prior visits to the World Cup. Furthermore, FIFA chief women’s football officer Sarai Bareman has claimed that the sport’s lesser status in New Zealand makes it harder to draw crowds.
