USA-France ticket prices jump to more than $10K

Julie Ertz

Megan Rapinoe scored two penalties as the US edged past Spain, 2-1, on Monday to set up the quarterfinal against France.

Perhaps with that in mind, Rapinoe, who played the part of two seasons at Lyon, is looking forward to all the attention Friday's France-USA match can get.

As of Tuesday morning on, the least expensive ticket is listed for $426, while the most expensive is listed at a whopping $17,000, with a number of tickets in the $1,000 to $3,000 range.

To compare, tickets for Thursday's quarterfinal match between England and Norway span from $28 to $170. There are naturally going to be more fans from each of those country willing to buy tickets as the teams go deeper into the tournament.

America's impressive attendance at the tournament is a big factor driving the ticket prices, as is France's standing as the home team. As ESPN pointed out, the USWNT's quarterfinal match against China had an average resale price of $165, while the final against Japan had a high of $368.

The U.S. Women's National Soccer Team has advanced to the World Cup quarterfinal, to the delight of fans in the Roanoke Valley.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has struggled to sell tickets for the tournament after its attempt to bolster ticket sales backfired in May. In 2015, the USA was also No. 1 but China was No. 14. The French men won in Russian Federation past year.

The women's team's games generated $50.8 million in revenue from 2016 to 2018 compared to the male team's games which made $49.9 million, according to USA soccer's audited financial statements obtained by The Wall Street Journal.

Although the results won't be clear until after the match, it appears likely to become the most expensive Women's World Cup game ever.
