THAT'S THE TICKET: WWC SAYS IT'S GAINING MO AS EVENT NEARS

          Women's World Cup President & CEO Marla Messing said
     yesterday that the event has "now crossed the 400,000 mark"
     in terms of total ticket sales.  Messing: "We are over
     62,000 for the opening game in New York.  And we [are]
     approaching 15,000 for the opening game in San Jose. 
     Average per event is 23,000, and our average for first
     round, non-USA matches is over 16,000."  Messing said the
     event is "definitely on a pace to sell a half a million
     tickets."  Messing was asked by one reporter why the WWC did
     not advertise around ESPN2's coverage of the European Cup
     Final on Wednesday.  Messing: "It wasn't in our media plans.
     ... We have a finite media budget" (THE DAILY).  Messing, on
     ticket buyer demos: "Our gut tells us that 95 percent [of
     ticket sales] are from the U.S." (AP, 5/28).
