2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup Ticket Prices and Sale Date Announced for Individual Games

CHICAGO (Jan. 20, 2015) – FIFA announced today that individual match tickets for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada will go on sale starting Feb. 6 for VISA card holders (through an exclusive presale where only VISA cards may be used) and Feb. 26 for the general public. Tickets will be available for purchase at FIFA.com/Canada2015.

Ticket prices start at $20.15 for select matches, providing fans an affordable opportunity to attend the games, support their team and experience the best women’s soccer in the world as they compete for the biggest honor in the sport.

In addition, U.S. Soccer is working with the Women’s World Cup Organizing Committee to give Supporters Club members access to tickets reserved exclusively for U.S. supporters.

In order to determine the number of tickets needed, as well as the level of interest in fan events in Canada, SC members will receive a brief survey via email in where they will be asked if they've already purchased tickets, which game(s) they are looking to attend, the ticket category desired, if they will accept a lower or higher category, and how many tickets they are looking to purchase. Questions regarding interest in various fan events will also be included. Supporters Club members will have until Friday, Jan. 23, to fill out the survey.

From there, U.S. Soccer will compile the responses and place an order for tickets. A ticketing link and code to members interested in purchasing U.S. supporter tickets in advance of the on-sale date will be provided shortly after. More information on how to join the Supporters Club and its various levels of membership can be found on ussoccer.com. For further questions, you may also contact supporters@ussoccer.org.

Fans hoping to attend the World Cup will also have the option to join U.S. Soccer’s Patrons Program. For information about the Patrons Program, U.S. Soccer’s exclusive VIP Experience and only travel program to follow the U.S. Women’s National Team in Canada, contact vip@ussoccer.org. Costs include a tax-deductible donation to support U.S. Soccer development initiatives.  

Complete information on 2015 individual ticket prices, including a comprehensive ticketing and stadium information guide, is available at FIFA.com. When individual tickets go on sale, a limited number of Stadium Passports will remain available while quantities last. Stadium Half Passes will no longer be available at the start of the VISA presale period.

The USA will face Australia, Sweden and Nigeria in Group D at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The USA opens against Australia on June 8 at Winnipeg Stadium, followed by Sweden on June 12 in Winnipeg and Nigeria on June 16 at BC Place in Vancouver. 

The 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup runs from June 6-July 5 and all 52 games will be shown live on FOX, FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2 and on tablets and mobile devices through the FOX Sports GO app and FOXSportsGO.com.

Rapinoe Ruled Out of WNT Camp Due to Minor Injury

CHICAGO (January 19, 2015) – U.S. Women’s National Team midfielder Megan Rapinoe will be sidelined for several weeks due to an injury sustained in training during the USA’s January event in Carson, Calif. 

Rapinoe, who has earned 96 caps for the USA, strained a ligament in her right knee and has left camp and returned home to continue her rehabilitation, leaving the USA with 29 players for the final week of training.

Rachel and Kristie’s Japan Adventure

For three months in the fall of 2014, U.S. WNT players Rachel Van Hollebeke and Kristie Mewis lived in Japan while playing for the Iga FC Kunoichi club. They went to Japan to get some great training and games, but left with an off-the-field life experience they will never forget.
