From the 14th September 2017, you can apply for Individual Match Tickets for all Matches of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, as well as Venue Specific Tickets and Team Specific Ticket Series.

The first Random Selection Draw period starts on the 14th September 2017, at 11H CET / 12H Moscow Time, and will end on the 12th October 2017, at 11H CET / 12H Moscow Time. If necessary, Tickets will be allocated accordingly by Random Selection Draw.

During the Random Selection Draw Sales period in Sales Phase (1), Ticket Applicants may submit their Ticket Application online 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 successful, partially and unsuccessful Ticket Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their applications.
