Media ticketing for Third Place match and Final closes tonight

The window to request media tickets for the Third Place match and FIFA World Cup Final is now open and will remain open for 48 hours until Thursday at 23:59 hours.

All applications submitted for matches after the deadline will automatically be put on the waitlist.

As previously communicated, ticket applications must be submitted exclusively via the FIFA Media Channel. FIFA does not accept applications via telephone, fax or e-mails.

Media representatives who encounter problems with access to the FIFA Media Channel or the submission of a match ticket application are requested to go to the Stadium Media Centre where volunteers can assist them.

As was the case for the first round matches, media who have been approved for a second round match and who subsequently change their plans, are requested to cancel such tickets on the FIFA Media Channel as otherwise they are likely to be sanctioned for a no-show.

In this respect, FIFA appeals to all media to be considerate as no-shows may prevent fellow media colleagues from covering a match.

The list of open and close dates plus times for requesting media tickets for each of the Second Round matches appears below:
