Canada has built a reputation for strong fan participation in FIFA events. It hosted the FIFA U-20 Men’s World Cup 2006 and drew total attendance of 1,195,299, a record at the time.
The organizing committee for Women’s World Cup 2015 is targeting a total audience of 1.5 million fans. This, in part, explains why large stadiums in Edmonton and Vancouver have been selected for the biggest matches.

The Local Organising Committee (LOC) has also announced that the highly sought-after tickets will go on sale in the third quarter of 2014.

The FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015 will be preceded one year earlier by the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup. The official match schedule and host cities for Canada 2014 will be announced in the coming months and ticket sales will begin in August 2013.
