TORONTO (AP) - Ticket prices for the Women’s World Cup will range from $16 for early rounds to $136 for premium seats at the final in July.

Organizers released the pricing structure Tuesday for individual tickets that go on sale Feb. 26 for matches in six Canadian cities.

That’s 100 days before the opening match of the 24-team tournament. The World Cup runs June 6 to July 5, with games in Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Manitoba; Edmonton, Alberta; Moncton, New Brunswick; and Vancouver, British Columbia.

The cost of the Canada-China opener June 6 at Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium ranges from $41 to $95 and includes a match between New Zealand and the Netherlands.

The semifinals will be held in Montreal and Edmonton. Tickets for the final at B.C. Place Stadium range from $41 to $136.

Tickets will be available on the Internet or via phone.

Ticket packages went on sale in September, and more than 400,000 tickets have already been sold.

More than half of tickets for the final have been snapped up. Those who bought stadium passport packages, which include tickets for every game at a stadium, had first crack at getting tickets for the final.

Tournament organizers are expecting one-third of ticket sales to come from ticket packages and two-thirds from individual tickets. Canada Soccer’s attendance target for the tournament is 1.5 million.
