The hottest ticket in pro sports may now be WOMEN'S SOCCER -- with every team in the National Women's Soccer League reporting a BOOM in sales post-World Cup ... TMZ Sports has learned.
With stars like Carli Lloyd, Tobin Heath, Alex Morgan and others returning to their teams in the NWSL .... reps for just about every team tell us people are buying tickets like CRAZY!!
In fact, a rep for the Portland Thorns FC (home of Alex Morgan and Tobin Heath) tell us they've already sold 16,000 TICKETS for the next home game ... which isn't until July 22nd!
FYI -- Portland averages roughly 13,769 fans per game ... but the fact so many tickets have sold this far in advance is unprecedented.
There's more ... a rep for the Seattle Reign FC (home of Hope Solo) says they've also received a "tremendous surge" in ticket sales, app downloads and merchandise sales.
"We're expecting the game this Sunday to be close to a sell out ... and the next game as well.
In Houston (home of Carli Lloyd), ticket sales are in such high demand -- the team is opening up the upper deck to the stadium ... which is usually closed for NWSL games.
Bottom line -- Women's soccer has never been hotter in the U.S. ... and as a rep for the Western New York Flash put it ... "This is the best opportunity we've had for ticket sales. We're trying to ride the wave."
