To ensure a fair and transparent allocation of tickets, the procedure for ticket allocation for the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021™ has been divided into two phases. The dates given below are all subject to possible change without prior notice. Any such changes will be communicated on FIFA.com/tickets.
Sales phase 1:
The first sales phase is divided into two sales periods:
Random Selection Draw (Visa Presale) – 03 August to 17 August 2021
Ticket applicants were able to submit their ticket applications at any time throughout this sales period, without any preference given in respect of the submission date (i.e. earlier submissions were not be given any preference and did not have a better chance of success than later submissions).
In this sales period, ticket purchases were not processed as a real-time transaction. All ticket applications submitted during the entire Random Selection Draw sales period were collected for the allocation of tickets by random selection draw at a predetermined date once this sales period ended.
During the Random Selection Draw sales period, tickets were available exclusively to fans who were Visa cardholders.
First-Come, First-Served Sales Period – 28 September to 12 October 2021
During this sales period, which starts on 28 September at 11:00 CET / 12:00 Doha Time and ends on 12 October 2021 at 11:00 CET / 12:00 Doha Time, tickets will be allocated on a first come first served basis; therefore, we advise fans to place their order as soon as the sales period opens as high demand can be expected, and the most sought-after tickets are likely to sell out very quickly. Please note that during this sales period, all ticket purchases will be subject to availability and will be processed as a real-time transaction.
Throughout the First Come First Served sales period, the tickets will be available to fans who are Visa cardholders as well as to holders of all other accepted payment cards.
Sales phase 2:
Last-Minute Sales Phase – 2 November to 18 December 2021
The Last-Minute Sales Phase will be the last chance for all fans to purchase their tickets online (from a date to be defined up until the final matchday of the competition, tickets will also be made available over the counter at designated location(s) in Qatar).
Throughout the Last-Minute Sales Phase, all ticket purchases will be subject to availability and will be processed as a real-time transaction.
During the Last-Minute Sales Phase, tickets will be available to fans who are Visa cardholders as well as to holders of all other accepted payment cards.
The dates provided above are subject to possible change without prior notice. Any such changes will be communicated on FIFA.com/tickets
Ticket products: There are two types of tickets available for the First Come First Served sales period: Individual Match Tickets, offered in categories 1 to 4, and Team Specific Ticket Series, offered in categories 1 to 3.
Individual Match Tickets (IMT): these are tickets for a specific match, which are available for all matches (match no. 1 to match no. 32). Individual Match Tickets will be available throughout all sales phases (subject to availability).
Team Specific Ticket Series (TSTs): TSTs are ticket packages to follow the national team of your choice. A TST will not always comprise all matches played by the chosen national team, but only the number of matches comprised in the package you have purchased. This means that, depending on which TST you apply for, your TST may include between three matches (“TST3” comprising only the three group matches) and six matches (“TST6”, comprising all three group matches, a quarter-final, a semi-final and the final). TST products are designed to allow you to follow the team of your choice and to enjoy the competition throughout all competition rounds selected in your TST product, allowing you to plan your trip and confirm the round(s) of matches for which you will have tickets to attend. If your team is eliminated and your TST includes rounds after your team has been eliminated, your TST will remain valid for any such round or rounds to follow the team that progresses into the next round of the competition. The elimination of your team will not entitle you to any form of refund. Please note that the ticket application and ticket confirmation will only identify the national team and the number of matches of your choice, and the purchase will include all tickets comprised in the requested TST. For the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021™, TSTs were available during the Visa Presale Random Selection Draw sale period and will also be available during the First Come First Served sales period. To ensure fair ticket sales for Individual Match Tickets and Team Specific Ticket series, you may apply for up to ten tickets per match or a maximum of 150 tickets for the entire FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021™ competition. It is possible to attend more than one match on the same day, but please note that certain matches are deemed incompatible due to time constraints and therefore you may not be able to apply for them.
