The Organising Committee of the FIFA Futsal World Cup Colombia 2016 has now made tickets for the competition available for fans in the host nation and around the world. The tournament will be held this September and October, with matches taking place in the cities of Cali, Medellin and Bucaramanga.

Between 19 April and 19 May 2016 you can purchase a city pass or “package”, which entitles you to a ticket in the category of your choice for each of the matches held in one of the three host cities. A 30 per cent discount is available for these passes.

All tickets are numbered to ensure you enjoy the experience of watching a FIFA World Cup competition in the best possible conditions at first-rate arenas: El Coliseo del Pueblo in Cali, El Coliseo Ivan de Bedout in Medellin and El Coliseo Bicentenario in Bucaramanga.

You can buy city passes online, at Tu Boleta outlets across Colombia or by calling 593 using any Colombian mobile phone operator (local operator charges apply).

  • The Cali city pass includes: the opening two matches and ten more group-phase matches, three Round-of-16 matches, two quarter-finals, a semi-final and the grand final. Prices are as follows: Category 1: $498,400; Category 2: $324,100 and Category 3: $174,300.
  • The Medellin city pass includes: 12 group-phase matches, three Round-of-16 matches, a quarter-final and a semi-final. Category 1 passes cost $399,000 and Category 2 passes $247,800.

NB: Prices are given in Colombian pesos and include the discount.

The Visa pre-sale period will begin on 20 May 2016, the day after the tournament draw, when individual tickets for each game will go on sale at a standard price, initially to Visa card holders only. During the Visa pre-sale period, Visa cardholders have the exclusive opportunity to purchase FIFA Futsal World Cup match tickets using their Visa cards before tickets go on sale to the general public on 3 June 2016.

Visa is the preferred payment method of Colombia 2016 and its cardholders will be entitled to a 20 per cent discount on city passes during the Visa pre-sale period, which runs until 3 June. Visa will be the only payment method accepted during the pre-sale period.

The third and final phase of ticket sales will then begin and be made available to the general public, though city passes will no longer be available by this stage.
