NEW YORK, New York — Last-minute tickets sales heated up for Sunday night’s FIFA Women’s World Cup championship that pits the U.S. against Japan, the defending champs.

Sales took off after the U.S. team clinched its spot last Tuesday, doubling the listing prices on ticket exchange sites.

Overall, fans have spent $3.4 million on tickets in the secondary market, according to, at an average price of $374.

The game will be played in Vancouver, and it’s the most expensive ticket to a North American soccer game that has on its books.

Those are still bargain prices compared to a seat at the men’s World Cup final in Brazil last year, which had an average resale price of $5,508. But the Women’s World Cup tickets are hotter than the men’s qualifier game against Mexico in September 2013.

That was the second-most expensive North American soccer game, and resale tickets sold at an average price of $293.

The most expensive seats to Sunday’s championship match sold at an average of $664, while the cheapest nose-bleed seats sold at $243.

The game will start at 7 p.m. ET.
