FIFA World Cup 2018 Russia Ticket information and price details

As we inch closer to the FIFA World Cup 2018 to be held in Russia next summer, the excitement keeps on mounting up. With every passing day, the enthusiasm shoots up to reach a new level altogether. The ecstatic qualification rounds have only helped the excitement grow further. Russia, being the hosts, have made sure they leave no stone unturned in their bid to make this event a memorable one. All their 12 host stadiums and the 11 host cities have geared themselves up to show the whole world how good a host Russia can be.

With that skyrocketing excitement, it won't be difficult to make out how eager the fans of almost every nation must be to get a seat for them in their team's matches in Russia. With the massive crowds from every country thronging the Russian streets, it won't be such an easy task to get your hands on the tickets for FIFA World Cup matches. To ensure you don't get stuck up with long queues or sold outboards, we've got you an early bird guide on how to buy tickets for your team's matches in Russia.

FIFA World Cup 2018 Tickets

If you're planning to tour Russia for the FIFA World Cup solely, then you can set your internet to work right away. Tickets are and will be available on FIFA's official website. These will be accompanied by FIFA Venue ticketing centers in Russia during the last phase of ticket sales. 

However, you can't buy a ticket directly and can only apply for one through the website and venue ticketing centers. If the number of ticket applications exceeds the number of seats at the venue, FIFA will allow tickets through a random selection process and will cancel the applications of the ones not selected. In case the number of applications does not exceed the number of seats available, tickets will be allotted to the applicants directly.

How to apply for tickets and Visas?

Ticket applications can be submitted quickly on FIFA's official ticketing portal on their website. Online payment will be accepted in USD only. As for the visa is concerned, the applicant can get a visa from any Russian Embassy located in his/her country. People from over 30 countries can visit Russia without a visa too. These countries include CIS member nations like Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarussia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldavia, Tadjikistan, Uzbekistan, Ukraine. People from Hong Kong will also be allowed to enter Russia without a visa but only for a limited period of 14 days.

World Cup 2018 Ticket price - How much will the tickets cost?

The ticket prices have been divided into 4 categories; cat 1, cat 2, cat 3, and cat 4. Of the 4 groups, only the first three will be available for the fans worldwide, and the cat 4 tickets will be reserved only for the Russian locals. The prices listed for the group matches are 210 USD for cat 1, 165 USD for cat 2, and 105 USD for cat 3. 

The cat 4 tickets will cost around only 24 USD but will just be available to the Russian fans. The cost of tickets for the remaining matches will increase by a significant amount. The prices listed for the final are 1300 USD for cat 1, 710 USD for cat 2, and 455 USD for cat 3. Also, there won't be any concessions based on the age of the applicants. No half tickets or children admissions will be entertained.

Special Access Tickets

FIFA has also made provision of individual access tickets for the specially abled people and for the obese too. They can apply for the special access tickets through FIFA's website too and can also avail a free entry for another person to accompany them. The free accompany system, however, doesn't apply to obese people. 

The free ticket for the accompany will be granted as close as possible to the unique access ticket holder. The applicant will have to present a medical proof though before claiming their special access ticket. Obese people will be required to submit an application signed by a doctor with their BMI stated to be obese for them.
