International friendlies Football Matches and the secondary tickets market’s response

FIFA’s Women’s World Cup and the CONCACAF Gold Cup are two of the biggest tournaments being staged in the continent this year. The World Cup, which was already begun, is being hosted by Canada, while the Gold Cup will be hosted by both the US and Canada.
