During the VISA Pre-sale Period, the acceptable form of payment is a valid VISA payment card only and all Tickets will be allocated to Ticket Applicants on a First Come First Served basis (please see Section “First Come First Served Sales Period”). During the VISA Pre-sale period, Ticket purchases are processed as a real-time transaction, and all successfully purchased Tickets will be confirmed immediately to the Ticket Applicants.

During the Random Selection Draw Sales Period in Sales Phase (1), Ticket Applicants may submit their Ticket Application at any time throughout the respective Random Selection Draw Sales Period, without any preference given in respect of the date of the submission (i.e. earlier submissions will not be preferred and do not have better chances of success than later submissions). During this sales period, Ticket purchases are not processed as a real-time transaction, but FIFA will collect all Ticket Applications submitted during the entire Random Selection Draw Sales Period for the allocation of Tickets at a predetermined date.

If demand for Tickets does not exceed the available inventory for a given Match and/or Ticket category, then the available Tickets will be allocated directly to those Ticket Applicants that have submitted an application for the respective Match and/or category. If demand for Tickets exceeds the available inventory for a given Match and/or Ticket category, then Random Selection Draw(s) will take place to determine which Ticket Applicants will be allocated Tickets. All Random Selection Draws to determine the successful Ticket Applicants will follow established algorhythms to ensure fairness. The Random Selection Draws are observed and confirmed by an authorized public notary. All successful, partially and unsuccessful Ticket Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their applications. The inventory remaining after the Random Selection Draw Phase will be made available in the next First Come First Served Sales period, where Tickets purchases are processed as a real-time transaction to the extent inventory remains available.

During the First Come First Served Sales Period in Sales Phases (1), Ticket Applicants may submit their Ticket Application at any time throughout the First Come First Served Sales Period, with preference given in respect of the date and time of the submission (i.e. earlier submissions will be preferred and do have better chances of success than later submissions). During such sales period, Ticket purchases are processed as a real-time transaction, i.e. available Tickets will be allocated directly to the Ticket Applicants. All successfully purchased Tickets will be confirmed immediately to the Ticket Applicants.

In the Last Minute Sales Phase, Tickets will be available online and, from a certain date determined by FIFA at a later stage onwards up until the final Match day of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017, Tickets will also be available Over-the-Counter at the designated FIFA Venue Ticketing Centres. All Tickets will be allocated to Ticket Applicant on a First Come First Served basis (please see Section “First Come First Served Sales Period”).
