Federation of International Football Associations has announced new early bird tickets for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 have been put on market.

During this sales period, FIFA noted, tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, and purchases will be processed as a real-time transaction, subject to availability. All successfully purchased tickets will be confirmed immediately to the ticket applicants. 

Ticket categories 1, 2 and 3 are available to all fans. The ticket category 4 is only reserved for Qatar residents (for all online sales, at the time of the order, each ticket applicant must provide the domestic address of their residence in Qatar as well as their QID number).

Three types of tickets will be made available during this sales period; Individual Match Tickets, Team Specific Ticket Series and Four-Stadium Ticket Series.

The world football governing body advised that fans place their application as soon as the window opens as tickets will most likely sell out quickly.

Meanwhile, FIFA revealed it had Sunday ended receiving payments for allocated tickets during the first random selection draw sales period that finished on February 8. 


Fans across the globe have proven their enthusiasm ahead of football’s biggest celebration as 17 million ticket requests were made in the first sales period, which lasted just 20 days. The largest number of applicants came from the host country.


During the opening random selection draw sales period, FIFA was also inundated by applications from football hotbeds and key markets, such as Argentina, Brazil, England, France, India, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and the USA. The most sought-after tickets were for the final on 18 December at Lusail Stadium, with 1.8mn requests for that match alone.


All local and international fans attending FIFA World Cup 2022 matches will need to obtain a Hayya Card. All international fans must also confirm their accommodation plans after purchasing their tickets in order to enter Qatar and access the stadiums.
