President of the Women's World Cup organisation committee Steffi Jones and Vice-President of the association of German transportation companies (VDV) Horst Klein signed a contract providing free public transport use for holders of tickets for the Women's World Cup 2011. The contract is an essential part of FIFA’s environmental concept for the World Cup tournament- Green Goal 2011, which aims to organise a ‘climate-fair’ championship by implementing various actions in key sectors including water management, waste, catering, energy and transportation.

Tickets for the Women's World Cup 2011 are valid for the trip to/from the specific matches and also allow free public transport use in the surrounding area of each match venue. Besides providing free travel to and from the matches for supporters, the combined tickets aims to relieve traffic congestion around the venues, simplify the use of the public transport system and enhance security in the stadiums.

Venues of the Women's World Cup 2011 in Germany are Augsburg, Berlin, Bochum, Dresden, Frankfurt, Leverkusen, Monchengladbach, Sinsheim and Wolfsburg. The tournament kickoff’s on July 17th 2011 in Berlin.
