Brazil Fifa World Cup 2014 Ticket FAQs
What are the steps I should take to secure tickets?
- You should register on FIFA.com between 20 August & 10 October for Sales Phase 1.
- The First Come First Served option (ie you can buy what you see is available) for Sales Phase 1 will run from 5 to 28 November.
- If unsuccessful in Phase 1 you would then apply again between 8 December & 30 January 2014 for the next phase – Sales Phase 2.
- In our opinion most fans will be unsuccessful in the first two Phases so don’t worry if this is you. The PMA ticket sale phase is where the majority of fans will attain match tickets for their country’s Group Stage matches. This takes place from 8 December 2013 to 7 February 2014.
- If by some chance you miss out again then tickets will come available towards the start of the tournament in the Last Minute sales phase from 15 April 2014.
The specifics of the different phases are detailed and can be downloaded from FIFA.com here You need to read the Ticket Terms & Conditions thoroughly which prevent the resale of tickets as well as other conditions.
What are the FIFA Sales Phases?
Sales Phase 1: You can apply for your tickets in Sales Phase 1 for the 2014 FIFA World Cup from 20 August 2013 to 10 October 2013. It makes no difference when you apply between these dates, as all orders will all be processed together. You will be able to request tickets on a Random Selection Draw basis for categories 1-4 during this period.
You will be able to buy tickets based on the date and venue of a match, or to follow a team (know as a TST & explained further below); because until the Draw on 6 December 2013 it will not have been decided where specific teams will play any given match (with the exception of Brazil as team A1).
If at 10 October 2013 the number of people applying for tickets exceeds the number of tickets that are made available by FIFA in that first phase then a ballot will take place. From our experience and in our opinion a ballot will take place for this Phase as only a small number of tickets are available at this stage.
All applicants for Sales Phase 1 will be notified before 5 November 2013.
All successful and partially successful Ticket applicants will receive a confirmation message by email, or SMS if an email address is not available, advising them of the Tickets that they have been successfully awarded.
All unsuccessful Ticket applicants applying online will also receive a message by email, or SMS, advising that they have been unsuccessful in their Ticket application. Applicants can also check the status of their account at any time by checking online at www.FIFA.com
All successful and partially successful Ticket applicants will be able to purchase tickets on a First Come First Served basis from 5 November 2013 to 28 November 2013.
Sales Phase 2: Will commence two days after the Final Draw on 8 December 2013 when football fans will know where their respective teams will be playing.
The 1st part of Sales Phase 2 will be again a ticket request collection period with orders to be made until 30 January 2014. Random selection draws will take place if applications exceed the number of available tickets for a given match and/ or category. First Come First Served tickets will be available from 26 February 2014 to 1 April 2014.
What types of Tickets are available from FIFA?
There are three types of ticket products available from FIFA.com for the 2014 FIFA World Cup:
- Individual Match Tickets for a specific match;
- Venue Specific Ticket Series (VST) are ticket strips for a specific venue. Strips include the Group Matches (not including the Opening Match), Round of 16 and 3rd / 4th place match, played at the specific venue and;
