FIFA World Cup 2018 Tickets are now on sale – even though only eight teams have qualified. Home nation fans can gamble on buying tickets in the first wave until October 12 – and if there is too much demand tickets will be allocated via a random draw. More tickets in the first phase will then be available from November 16-28.
There are three types of tickets: match specific, for stadiums or for teams. The draw for the finals will be made on December 1 – and the second phase will begin on December 5 when fans will know exactly where their teams will be playing.
FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura said: “We have put in place a ticketing system that will five all fans the chance to buy tickets.” The tournament begins in Moscow on June 14.
