A total of 199,519 tickets for the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ will be up for grabs in the last sales phase, which will open on Tuesday 15 April 2014 at 12h00 CET / 07h00 Brasilia time, via FIFA.com. Tickets for 54 matches will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be no tickets for ten out of the 64 matches: opening (Brazil vs. Croatia), final and matches 2 (Mexico vs. Cameroon), 8 (England vs. Italy), 11 (Argentina vs. Bosnia-Herzegovina), 17 (Brazil vs. Mexico), 19 (Spain vs. Chile), 33 (Cameroon vs. Brazil), 34 (Croatia vs. Mexico) and 35 (Australia vs. Spain).

Only credit and Visa debit cards will be accepted in this phase – there is no option to pay with a Boleto. Visa is the preferred payment method of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. It is important to ensure that ticket buyers have enough funds for their respective payment method. Tickets can also be purchased over the counter at designated FIFA Venue Ticketing Centres from 1 June 2014 to 13 July 2014. All spectators, including children of all ages, require a ticket to access the stadium.

“With less than two months to go, this is the last chance for fans to secure their tickets for football’s flagship event. I am confident we will have a high demand for the remaining tickets, not only from Brazilian fans but also from people all over the world,” said Thierry Weil, FIFA Marketing Director in charge of ticketing.

So far, a total of 2,577,662 tickets have already been allocated through all sales phases and channels (including the FIFA Hospitality Programme and other constituent groups) – 61% went directly to general public via FIFA.com.

FIFA would like to take this opportunity to reiterate that FIFA.com is the only online sales platform for tickets for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Any ticket products being offered by other companies or on other platforms are not part of, or related to, the official ticket sales programme. FIFA has not appointed any company to act as its agent for the sale of match tickets. Supporters are strongly advised not to buy tickets through other channels.
