That’s right, ticket sales for 2023 Women’s World Cup in New Zealand & Australia have been announced!

The tournament draw occurred on 22 October:

Current/Upcoming Ticket Sales Phase

We are in Phase 2!

Don’t miss out, we bought tickets to the FINAL match for only $25 USD each!

How to Apply

Step 1 – create a FIFA account, if you do not have one!

If you already have one, you’ll need to be logged in so reset your password if you forgot and login!

Step 2 – Submit an Application

Visit this link to directly access 2023 applications.

Once you’re on the site, you will need to select if you’re:

  • Australian Citizen
  • New Zealand Citizen
  • International (i.e. not one of those above)

We mention this b/c if you go to the site on your phone, it isn’t obvious!

(If it is your first time, the user experience at FIFA can be quite poor).

What Are Category 1, Category 2 and Category 3?

  • Category 1 = middle of the field seats
  • Category 2 = corners of the field seats
  • Category 3 = behind the goal seats

It varies slightly per stadium but the image below of Stadium Australia illustrates this well.

Note: Category is NOT how close you are, only where your viewpoint is! You do NOT get your seat assignment until it is randomly assigned closer to the start date.
