This year’s World Cup in Qatar has sold 1.8 million tickets so far.

Qatar residents have purchased the most tickets, with Canada, England, France, Germany, India, Saudi Arabia, Spain, the UAE, and the U.S. following. With all 32 teams now confirmed for the tournament, the next phase of tickets for the November event go on sale Tuesday. 

FIFA plans to offer a total of 3 million tickets over all buying rounds but has received more than 23 million requests. Qatar hopes to attract 1.2 million fans.

Fans interested in attending have a few ticket options, with prices ranging from roughly $69 for a Category 3 group-stage match and north of $1,600 for a final ticket.

  • Tickets for individual matches are available across four price categories, with Category 4 tickets reserved for Qatar residents.
  • Fans can purchase up to six tickets per match, but no more than 60 over the course of the tournament.
  • In line with match compatibility rules, attendees may have opportunities to attend more than one group game on the same day toward the beginning of the tournament.

Payment Process

The purchase period will be open until Aug. 16 but will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. FIFA says a queue management system will apply if there is high demand.

There will also be a third, “last-minute” sales phase.
