More than a half-million tickets for this summer's Women's World Cup have already been sold, with games featuring host Germany, the United States and Brazil generating the most interest.

A total of 800,000 tickets were available for purchase, and the president of the local organizing committee said Friday she is hoping for sellouts at all 32 games. Steffi Jones plans to tour the nine cities where games will be played, looking to spark further interest.

China holds the attendance record for a Women's World Cup, drawing almost 1.2 million fans to the 2007 tournament that was won by Germany.
