Women's World Cup by the numbers
The GIST: USWNT stars Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe have said this year’s WWC will be the best one yet and “blow the lid off” women’s sports. We couldn’t agree more, so here’s a closer look at the numbers that are already proving them right.
32: The total number of teams included in the event, eight more than 2019’s edition.
2: The number of host countries, marking the first time a WWC has transcended borders.
75,784: The number of fans in attendance at co-host Australia’s first 2023 WWC match, a record crowd for a women’s football match in the country. Crikey!
$0.25: The average cents to the dollar women soccer players will earn at this year’s WWC compared to athletes at the 2022 men’s WC, up from a whopping eight cents in 2019.
