The first phase of ticket sales kicked off on 19 January at 1pm Doha time, and will end at the same time on 8 February, FIFA announced.
Fans applying for the tickets will not be impacted by the time of day they complete the application, as long as it is submitted before 8 February — given that the draw will be made following the closure of phase one.
“All successful, partially successful, and unsuccessful applicants will be duly notified of the outcome of their applications by Tuesday, 8 March 2022, along with the steps to follow and the deadline by which to pay for allocated tickets,” said FIFA in a press release.
Qatar’s anticipated 2022 FIFA World Cup will kick off on 21 November 2022 in Al Khor. Thus far, 13 out of the 32 countries have qualified for the grand tournament; qualification matches will continue this year until the intercontinental playoffs.
Want to apply for a ticket?
All football fans who want to get their hands on early tickets for the much-awaited FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, can visit FIFA.com/tickets and choose their preferred category.
The website shows four types of tickets: individual match tickets, team-specific tickets, four stadium tickets, and accessibility tickets. Supporter tickets and conditional supporter tickets will be introduced later on.
The tickets for category 4 are the cheapest since Mexico’s 11 QAR (3 dollars) seats, based on 1986 exchange rates. They also stand at half the price of the equivalent category in the 2018 event that was hosted by Russia.
Showcase matches, however, are relatively more expensive to the previous tournaments.
The price ranges are as follows:
|Individual Tickets||Category 1
||Category 2||Category 3||Category 4|
|Opening game||2250 QAR||1600 QAR||1100 QAR||200 QAR|
|Group stage||800 QAR||600 QAR||250 QAR||40 QAR|
|Round of 16||1000 QAR||750 QAR||350 QAR||70 QAR|
|Quarter-Finals||1550 QAR||1050 QAR||750 QAR||300 QAR|
|Semi-Finals||3480 QAR||2400 QAR||1300 QAR||500 QAR|
|3rd Place||1550 QAR||1100 QAR||750 QAR||300 QAR|
|Finals||5850 QAR||3650 QAR||2200 QAR||750 QAR|
* Category 4 is for Qatar residents only.
Residents of Qatar can only pay through Visa, while international fans can pay through various other cards. Spectators will have to obtain a Fan ID (Hay’ya Card) in order to enter the country and access stadiums, the organising committee has announced.
The second ticket sale is expected to kick off later this year, prior to the final draw in April.
