ZURICH, December 20, 2017 - Fans from all around the world can apply for 2018 FIFA World Cupô tickets as the first window of sales phase 2 proceeds through the official platform FIFA.com/tickets.

Until 31 January, fans can apply for individual match tickets for all matches (except for the opening match and final) and venue-specific tickets for all stadiums, as well as supporter tickets and conditional supporter tickets for official fans of the 32 teams. If the number of tickets requested by 31 January 2018 exceeds the number of available tickets, the allocation will be based on a random selection draw procedure, with fans being informed of its outcome by 12 March 2018 at the latest. During the current 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.

Support your team and apply for supporter tickets and conditional supporter tickets

Official supporters of the 32 participating member associations can request supporter tickets (STs) and conditional supporter tickets (CSTs) for their national teamís matches. Supporter tickets are tickets for each of a teamís three group matches.
