About two billion fans are expected to tune in from screens globally. It will be the first-ever dual-host Women’s World Cup and the largest-ever with 32 teams competing. Add to the popularity of women’s soccer the fact that global sports tourism is one of the fastest-growing sectors and a boon to commercial and economic growth in host cities. The market was valued at $587.87 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate of 17.5% from 2023 to 2030.
