If you are collecting Tickets as a third party, you must be duly authorised by the Ticket Applicant by means of a notarised power of attorney specific for the collection of your Tickets and bring notarised copies of both yours and the Ticket Applicant’s identification documents with embedded photographs.

Timely Collection

We recommend you collect your Tickets as early as possible, and before the Match day, in order to ensure your timely access to the Stadium before the Kick Off time of the Match. Please note that, whilst we endeavour to provide you with the best possible service, delays can occur when collecting your Tickets in case of high customer traffic.

Please remember that you are solely responsible for the timely collection of all Tickets purchased by you. For security reasons, FIFA will not make available any Tickets for collection at the Stadium on Match days. Therefore, FIFA strongly recommends that you collect your Tickets as early as possible; but, in any case, before the respective Match day.

Collection by Appointment
