ZURICH: More than 220,000 tickets will be up for grabs in the next sales window for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, which will open on Monday, 11 November 2013 at 12h00 CET / 09h00 Brasilia time via FIFA.com. Tickets for 57 matches will be available on a first-come, first-served basis but we expect demand to be high. There will be no tickets in this sales window for the opening match in São Paulo, the final in Maracanã, Brazil’s group-stage matches, the round of 16 in Belo Horizonte and the semi-final matches in Belo Horizonte and São Paulo. It is important to ensure that ticket buyers have enough funds for their respective payment method.

The amount of tickets on sale includes almost 41,000 venue specific tickets (VST) which grant fans access to matches within one of the host cities, as well as a very limited amount of follow your team ticket series (TST).

FIFA would like to take this opportunity to reiterate that FIFA.com is the only online sales platform for tickets for the 2014 FIFA World Cup™. Any ticket products being offered by other companies or on other platforms are not part of, or related to, the official ticket sales programme. FIFA has not appointed any company to act as its agent for the sale of match tickets. Supporters are strongly advised not to buy tickets through other channels.
