In-line with the General World Cup™ Law / Lei Geral (Law No. 12.663/2012) for the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ and based on the agreement that was reached between FIFA and the Brazilian Federal Government, FIFA will implement specific ticket allocation principles with regard to certain members of the general public:
- Category 4 tickets will be made available to residents of Brazil only.
- In addition, Students, and Bolsa Familiy members resident in Brazil are entitled to receive a discounts of 50% for Category 4 or Disabled Access Tickets or Category 4 Venue Specific Ticket Series (i.e. no discount applies for VSTs in Category 1, 2 or 3).
- Students, Elderly people and Bolsa Familiy members will be entered into a priority Random Draw with respect to the first 300,000 Category 4 tickets for the 2014 FIFA World Cup™.
- Furthermore, FIFA will also grant discounts of 50% to Elderly people (aged 60 or older by the day of the Final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™) who are residents of Brazil and purchasing Categories 1-4 or Disabled Access Tickets. This includes Individual Match Tickets, Venue Specific Tickets or Team Specific Tickets*
No other discounts or further preferential rights will be granted to other members of the general public for any Category 1-4 tickets or other Ticket products. Individuals who qualify under more than one of the eligibility criteria outlined above will not qualify for multiple discounts on the price of their Tickets.
In case the Ticket Applicant or any of his/her Guest is resident in Brazil and entitled to the purchase of a Category 4 Ticket or a discount pursuant to 12.663/2012 (General World Cup Law), when collecting Tickets pursuant to section 11.1 of the Sales Regulations, the Ticket Applicant will be required to present such official Brazilian documents which evidence the fulfilment of the Personal Condition that entitles the Ticket Applicant or any of his/her Guest to the purchase of a Category 4 Ticket or a discount pursuant to 12.663/2012 (General World Cup Law). The type of document permitted is set out in the FAQ document in questions as follows:
Elderly Persons: Customers resident in Brazil who are 60 years old or older by the 13th July, 2014 (day of the Final) are eligible for a 50% discount on all Tickets Categories, Disabled Access Tickets, TST and VSTs personally used by such customer.
Students: Students resident in Brazil and which are a holder of the Brazilian National Student ID card are eligible for a 50% discount on all Category 4 Tickets, Disabled Access Tickets and Category 4 VSTs personally used by such customer.
Bolsa Familia members: Participants of federal programs for the transfer of income (Bolsa Familia) are eligible for a 50% discount on all Category 4 Tickets, Disabled Access Tickets and Category 4 VSTs personally used by such customer.

Misrepresentation of eligibility for discounted tickets may result in the tickets being cancelled.
