The Official Draw for the FIFA Futsal World Cup Colombia 2016 marks the start of the sales period for individual match tickets for the event. During an initial pre-sale period, from 20 May - 3 June, tickets will be exclusively available to VISA cardholders, who can enjoy considerable benefits.

As host of futsal’s flagship event, Colombia will welcome the world’s top teams to the cities of Cali, Medellin and Bucaramanga. 

The colourful city of Cali and its Coliseo del Pueblo will be the venue for the opening match, ten group-phase games, three Round of 16 ties, two quarter-finals, a semi-final and the grand final.

For its part, the Coliseo Ivan de Bedout in the picturesque city of Medellin will stage 12 group-phase matches, three Round of 16 fixtures, a quarter-final and a semi-final.  

Last but not least, the Coliseo Bicentenario in charming Bucaramanga will witness action from 12 group-phase matches, two Round of 16 ties and a quarter-final.

The first benefit for cardholders with Visa, an official FIFA Partner, is that, thanks to the period of exclusivity between May 20 and June 3, they alone can purchase the best seats at these World Cup venues using any type of Visa card.

The prices of individual tickets vary depending on the competition phase. Prices (shown in Colombian pesos) are as follows:
