Russian and Chilean fans lead requests for FIFA Confederations Cup tickets
Friday, 20 January 2017, 11:46

FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 tickets had been requested by fans from all continents by the time the first sales window closed at 12.00 CET (14.00 Moscow time) on 19 January 2017. Russian fans are on top of the list with 71,266 tickets requested, followed by their Chilean counterparts with 4,949. The tickets purchased by 5 April 2017 will be delivered by courier service free of charge as of April 2017. On top of the tickets requested during the current sales phase, a total of 48,504 had already been sold during the Visa pre-sales phase between 8 and 17 November 2016.

“The sales system in place ensures that fans all around the world have fair and equal access to tickets. The number of ticket requests from Chile confirms the great appeal of the tournament, not only in Russia but also abroad, as some fans are willing to cross the world to see their team play in the FIFA Confederations Cup. We are convinced that the Tournament of Champions will have a thrilling atmosphere in the stands and that the coming sales phases will enable more fans to secure their tickets,” said FIFA’s Head of Ticketing, Falk Eller.

All ticket applications received prior to the closure of the first sales window will have the same chance of being successful no matter when they were placed. In the case of any matches and price categories in which demand exceeds the available inventory, random selection draws will take place in the presence of a public notary to fairly allocate tickets to applicants, who will be informed by no later than 28 February via e-mail about whether their request has been successful.

As requested by the Russian authorities, to attend FIFA Confederations Cup matches, all fans need to obtain a personalised Fan ID to enjoy all matches for which they have purchased tickets. Following the random selection draws and once fans have received confirmation that tickets have been successfully allocated to them, they can apply for their Fan ID at www.fan-id.ru. FIFA
does not assume any liability or responsibility in respect of the application, issuance and use of such identification documents (Fan ID).

Ticket sales – including category 4 tickets which are reserved exclusively for Russian residents as well as Special Access Tickets for disabled people, people with limited mobility and obese people – will resume on 1 March via www.FIFA.com/tickets in the first-come, first-served sales period, in which ticket purchases will be allocated as a real-time transaction to the ticket applicants.

The FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 will take place in Kazan, Moscow, Sochi and Saint Petersburg from 17 June to 2 July 2017. Group A will feature hosts Russia alongside New Zealand (OFC Nations Cup winners), Portugal (UEFA EURO winners) and Mexico (CONCACAF Gold Cup winners), while Group B will include world champions Germany, Chile (Copa América winners), Australia (AFC Asian Cup winners) and the champions from Africa (to be determined on 5 February 2017).

The opening match will see hosts Russia face New Zealand at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on Saturday, 17 June 2017.
