FIFA World Cup tickets - ticket prices & whenWhen will World Cup tickets go on sale?

FIFA has announced that the 3.3 million tickets for the 2014 World Cup football in Brazil will be available from August 20, 2013.

The first round of ticket sales will be allocated in a worldwide lottery. The next round of tickets will be available after the 32-team lineup is confirmed in November. The actual World Cup 2014 draw will be held on December 6, 2013 in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil.

Since November 2011, there are already MATCH hospitality packages for sale. FIFA hopes to sell 450,000 of those packages. This is about 10 percent of the available seats.

What will be the ticket prices for the World Cup 2014?

Ticket prices for the World Cup 2014 are not known yet. They will be announced by FIFA at a press conference on July 1st, 2013. Below you can find realistic estimates of the ticket price ranges.

Ticket prices for hospitality packages

Prices for the MATCH hospitality packages range from $700 up to $2,300,000  (€530 up to €1,750,000). They are sold on FIFA.com.

Unless you are a resident of Brazil that is, because then you can make use of the VISA Programme Brazil with prices of tickets starting from $590 (€450) and up.

Ticket prices for regular match tickets

Regular tickets will thankfully be cheaper. Below are the ticket prices that could be expected based on the World Cup ticket prices in 2010. These are the prices for individual match tickets. In 2010, you could reserve 4 tickets per match for up to 7 matches.

Category 1 tickets were generally located alongside the pitch. Category 2 tickets alongside Category 1,  in the corners. Category 3 tickets alongside Category 2, behind the goals or in the corners. And finally category 4 tickets were located behind the goals.

It might however be that at the World Cup 2014 there is no category 4 for the international market, as is the case at the Confederations Cup in June 2013.

Just like the hospitality packages, regular tickets for the World Cup 2014 will be sold from FIFA.com. Tickets will be linked to numbered seats.

Ticket prices for Team Specific Ticket Series

Next to this there might be tickets available with which you can follow a team of your choice. These are usually more expensive than the individual match tickets, as they include the price of the individual tickets plus a 10% service fee. Below are the ticket prices that could be expected based on the World Cup ticket prices in 2010.

With a  TST-7 ticket you could attend three group matches, one round of 16, one quarter-final, one semi-final and the final. A TST-6 ticket does not include the final, a TST-5 does not include the semi-final, and so on. In a TST-3 ticket, 3 group matches were included in the price.

The above table assumes that the team you select is not Brazil, neither its opponent in the opening match. Otherwise the price of tickets rises with the price difference between the opening match and a regular group match plus 10% service fee.
