Over 3 million FIFA 2018 tickets requested

18 January 2018

There is less and less time before the most anticipated football event. The demand for tickets continues to grow.

At the moment of January 15, 2018 the number of tickets requested by fans of all the world countries was 3 141 163 units. This was reported by the press service of the FIFA organization.

Most applications were filed by Russian football fans. Fans from Germany, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Colombia, the United States, Spain, Poland and China are also among the leaders. In total, 38% of all tickets were accounted by foreign fans.     

The current phase of sales will last until January 31, 12:00 o’clock. Those who are interested can submit an application for any match they want to visit, except for opening and final of the tournament, as well as a package of tickets for matches held at a certain stadium, and "fan tickets" of any of the 32 teams-participants, including the possible Play-offs matches, if the teams will reach that point.

If the number of applications exceeds the number of available tickets, the tickets will be distributed on the principle of random draw. Its results will be known on March 12, 2018. The time at which an application was submitted will not be counted in a draw. This means that those who have left the request earlier will have no advantage.
