The first question that most people ask is when tickets will go on sale? The answer is that first wave has already passed and been on sale. It happened on September 14. The second stage went on November 16th so you can prepare to find what is left.
FIFA World Cup 2018 Tickets
The idea between tickets is that they will be sold in two phases. The first phase contains an application period where you have to leave all your information on FIFA.com so that you can be eligible.
It doesn’t matter if you want to purchase individual tickets, for specific venues or strips that will allow you to follow one national team of your choice. You have to follow the rule by leaving your application on FIFA website.
- channels to Broadcast FIFA 2018 World Cup
- When is Group draw date for 2018 World Cup
- complete FIFA 2018 schedule and fixtures list
However, the other question that pops up after this explanation is how to understand whether you will be successful for the application. The idea is to enable all fans a fair share to secure their tickets.
But if you miss the second phase, don’t worry because it is split into two periods. The first will start from 5th December to 31st January, and another side of this particular period will be decided after random selection.
You can also purchase tickets between March 13 to April 3 on the first-served basis. According to FIFA statistics, more than 3 million applications were made in the first phase.
Therefore, we are asking ourselves whether there will be tickets available. The question is that they will be. You can also purchase the last minute sales between April 18 and July 15 which will take you right up to the final.
