Scotland supporters can ensure their place in an historic crowd this summer, as tickets for Scotland’s women’s matches at this summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup are now on sale.
The first Scotland senior team to qualify for a World Cup in over two decades, Shelley Kerr’s side will make their debut at the tournament against the Auld Enemy, having been drawn to face England in their first match in Nice on Sunday 9 June.
Kerr’s squad will then travel north to face 2015 runners-up Japan in Rennes on Friday 14 June, before concluding their group stage campaign at the historic Parc des Princes in Paris against Argentina on Wednesday 19 June.
Tickets will be on sale from 12 noon on Monday, 28 January until 12 noon on Friday 8 February. Those looking to purchase tickets must be a member of the Scotland Supporters’ Club – supporters can purchase their memberships at the same time to secure their tickets.
SSC members will be able to purchase up to four Category Three tickets, priced at £12 each, for each Scotland group stage match. Please note that the ticket price is a flat rate for all supporters.
Alternatively, SSC members are eligible to purchase the Follow My Team package of Category Three tickets, which includes every match involving Scotland at every stage of the tournament. The package is priced at £140, with the price once again a flat rate. Members would be refunded the remaining amount if Scotland were knocked out before the final.
For tickets not officially in the SWNT allocation, supporters can apply for tickets through FIFA, with a variety of packages available to all.
“Ever since we qualified for the World Cup over in Albania, all the players have noticed a massive increase in interest and we’ve received so many messages of congratulations,” said Scotland defender Jen Beattie.
“We’re all really focused on the tournament this year and the tickets going on sale is another landmark in the build up to what will be the highlight of our careers.
“The support we have received, especially in the last two years, has been exceptional and that was capped off by achieving the record attendance against Switzerland last year.
“We are really looking forward to seeing the Scotland fans out in France and hopefully putting smiles on their faces with positive performances and achieving our goal of emerging from the group.”
