Organizers hope for record attendance of 1.5M at 2015 Women’s World Cup

The 2014 under-20 Women’s World Cup isn’t over yet but the Canadian Soccer Association is already turning its attention to next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup. Matching the crowds from the 2010 Vancouver Olympics — 1.5 million spectators at six venues across Canada — is the joint goal of FIFA and the CSA for the 2015 Women’s World Cup. For the 2010 U-20 Women’s World Cup, Germany attracted 373,800 to its four venues across the country.

We’re trying to set goals that haven’t been accomplished before.
