Fans from all around the world will be able to apply for tickets exclusively on FIFA.com/tickets. Sales phase 2 will be divided into two sales periods:

Random selection draw from 5 December 2017 until 31 January 2018

Fans will be able to apply for individual match tickets for all matches except for the Opening Match and the Final, venue-specific tickets and supporter tickets and, if the number of applications exceeds the number of available tickets, allocation will be based on a random selection draw procedure. During this sales period, it will make no difference whether applications are submitted on day one, the last day or any time in between, as all will have the same chance of being successful.

First-come, first-served from 13 March until 3 April 2018

Fans will be able to purchase tickets in real time on FIFA.com/tickets with immediate confirmation of successful application, subject to availability.

Supporter tickets and conditional supporter tickets

In addition to individual match tickets (including category 4 tickets reserved exclusively for Russian residents) and venue-specific tickets, supporter tickets can be applied for as from 5 December.

Official supporters of all 32 participating member associations can request supporter tickets and conditional supporter tickets (CSTs) for their national team’s matches. Supporter tickets are tickets for each of a team’s three group matches. CSTs are tickets for each of the four knockout-phase matches that could potentially be played by a team, and are conditional upon the team qualifying for the respective rounds of the tournament. Participating member associations are allocated 8% of the purchasable capacity of each stadium in which they are playing. For more information, please click here.

FAN ID

Fans are encouraged to apply for this free document as soon as possible after they have received their ticket confirmation email.

The FAN ID and a valid ticket are required for fans to be able to enter the 2018 FIFA World Cup stadiums. Having a FAN ID gives fans additional benefits and services provided by the host country, such as visa-free entry to the Russian Federation, certain free inter-host city travel and free use of public transport on matchdays. For further details, please visit www.fan-id.ru.

FIFA does not assume any liability or responsibility concerning the application, issue and/or use of FAN IDs.
