This sale window will run until April 28 and applicants will for the first time have the opportunity to order tickets that will be offered as supporter tickets and conditional supporter tickets, for those who declare themselves fans of a certain participating nation and want to sit with other fans of his team, indicates the official text. In addition, “fans will be able to reapply for individual match tickets and four-stadium season tickets, while accessibility tickets will be available across all products.”
During this sales period, ticket applicants may apply at any time, without having to provide details of any submission date preferences. If demand for a given match and/or ticket category exceeds the available ticket inventory for the domestic or international market, a lottery will be held to determine which applicants are allocated tickets.

For fans arriving in Qatar from abroad, individual ticket prices for the first phase range from USD 68.5 to USD 219 for a match. For the final, they will be between USD 603 and USD 1,604. Ticket fares reserved for local residents are cheaper, ranging from USD 11 to USD 205 per unit. This represents an increase of 30% compared to Russia 2018.
