On December 5, 2017 at 12.00 p.m. Moscow time starts the second phase of 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ ticket sales. The second phase will consist of two periods: the first will last from December 5 to January 31, 2018, the second - from March 13 to April 3, 2018.
During the first period of the second phase of sales the tickets will be distributed by random draw. This means that ticket applications can be filed at any time until January 31, and the draw will determin lucky ticket holders regardless of the date the application was submitted. You can apply for tickets only at FIFA.

During the second period of the second phase of sales tickets will be sold on a first come first served basis (subject to availability), that is, fans will be able to purchase them in real time and receive a confirmation of a successful application immediately after the payment is complete.

At the initiative of the Russian authorities, to attend all 2018 FIFA World Cup matches, after buying a ticket all fans should also get a FAN ID. We recommend applying for this free document immediately after receiving an e-mail confirmation of the ticket purchase after the end of the sales period by random draw.

To enter the stadiums, where 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ matches will be held, fans need a valid ticket and a FAN ID. In addition, a FAN ID allows you to take advantage of additional benefits and services: visa-free entry to the territory of the Russian Federation, free travel on special trains between the host cities, free travel on public transport on the day of the match.
