Missed the last World Cup in Rio? Now’s your chance to see the next one … right here in Vancouver.

Tickets for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup went on sale this week.  The largest women’s sporting event in the world runs from June 6-July 5 at venues in six cities across Canada, including Vancouver. Downtown Vancouver’s B.C. Place stadium will host nine matches in total, including the all-important final on July 5.

The 2015 Women’s World Cup claims to be Canada’s first coast-to-coast sporting event. Other cities getting in on the act are Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal and Moncton.  In total, 24 national teams will be facing off, including Canada, which won bronze in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Currently on sale are special ticket packages for seeing multiple games at B.C. Place. (Individual tickets don’t appear to be available yet.)  For hardcore fans, the Stadium Passport package includes tickets for eight games (everything except the final): a pair of doubleheaders on June 8 and June 12 and single games on June 16, June 21 and June 23 (round of 16) and June 27 (quarter-final). Prices range from $185-$395 for the package.

Not interested in that much football? The Half Pass packages offer access to four matches. Half Pass 1 includes a double-header on June 8, as well as a round of 16 match on June 23 and a quarter-final on June 27.  Prices range from $95-$235.  Half Pass 2 includes a double-header on June 12, as well as a match on June 16 and a round of 16 match on June 21.  Prices range from $80-$200.

Tickets to the final are not included in any of the packages.  But you do have an option to purchase a final ticket when you buy a package.  Prices range from $50-$165 and there’s a limit of six final tickets per purchase.

In case you’re wondering, the exact lineup for matches has yet to be determined.  If Canada wins its group – which is still being filled – it will go on to play a round of 16 game at B.C. Place and, potentially, a quarter-final game.  Qualifying for the event concludes on Nov. 27 and the official draw takes place on Dec. 6.
