FIFA ticket information

There are four official ways of obtaining tickets for the 2006 FIFA World Cup Cup™:
No, not the real thing - Confed Cup tickets
 
Corporate hospitality providers
If you're flush with money - or your company is - practically the only way of being 100% certain of getting a ticket now is through an official hospitality package.

FIFA has assigned exclusive rights for selling hospitality packages to a Swiss company called iSe.  They in turn have sub-contracted the right to sell these to agents around the world.  These include:
 
Circa Group 
 
Sports World Group
 
Mike Burton.com
 
Thomas Cook Sport
 
Full details of the packages available can be found on the hospitality section of the FIFA website.  The cheapest packages available cost €1,900 for 3 games (so, a cool €633 per match - but hey, it's a once in a lifetime event!).  Packages to follow your team through the 3 group stage games cost €5,160 + 7.6% Swiss VAT.
 
Via sponsors' competitions and promotions
OK, so it's a long shot ... but someone has to be lucky!  Budweiser have a football competition to win tickets on their UK website and Emirates are giving them away with certain first-class flights.

Direct from FIFA
The following is an extract from
the official FIFA website:

The third sales phase will begin 12th of December 2005 and will end 15th of January 2006.

"As with the first sales period, a ballot will be carried out under the supervision of an official, on 31 January. In early February, ticket allocations will be made known and written order confirmations sent out listing the ticket category and number of tickets ordered.

Important: It makes no difference whether you register early, on 12th of December 2005, or late, on 15th of January 2006. Every properly submitted application will stand the same chance to win at the draw.

(Note: The only credit card you can use online with FIFA is Master Card).

The fourth sales phase will start on 15th of February 2006 and will end on 15th of April 2006. Ticket applications submitted during this stage will be processed in the order of receipt (according to the principle “First come, first served“).

Ticket allocation in the fourth phase will end with all tickets set aside for this phase being allocated, or by 15th of April 2006 latest.

(Note: The only credit card you can use online with FIFA is Master Card).

The fifth sales phase (last minute phase) will start on 1st of May 2006 and will end by 9th of July 2006. Ticket applications submitted during this fifth phase will be processed in the order of receipt (according to the principle of “First come, first served“).

Ticket allocation will end when all tickets set aside for the fifth sales phase have been allocated, or by 9th of July latest.

During this phase tickets will be allocated via the internet as well as via selected advance booking centres at the venues. At these centres you can pay cash or by credit card."

(Note: The only credit card you can use online with FIFA is Master Card).

From participating football associations
This is how FIFA explain the procedure on their website:

"Participating Member Associations will be entitled to sell “Fixed” and “Conditional” tickets to members of the general public. Fixed tickets are tickets which are not conditional upon a Member Associations’ progress through the competition, that is to say, tickets for First Round Matches played by that Member Association. Conditional tickets are tickets which are conditional upon the participation of a Member Association in the corresponding Second Round Match. Once a Member Association is eliminated, it loses its ticket entitlement for all subsequent Second Round matches and individuals who paid for such tickets shall be entitled to a refund from their Member Association.

The number of tickets allocated to each Participating Member Association will be based on the capacities of the stadia in which each Member Association’s team may play during each stage of the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™. Following the Final Draw on 9 December 2005, the Participating Member Association ticket allocation will be adjusted to correspond to eight percent (8%) of all purchasable tickets in the stadium in which the Member Association is drawn to play its First Round Matches, or where it may progress to play its Second Round Matches.

Each Member Association is entitled to commence ticket sales for both Fixed and Conditional tickets immediately upon confirmation of its qualification for the finals of the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™. Details of the tickets (price, category and number) made available by the Participating Member Association will be made available in due course by the Participating Member Association. The number of Participating Member Associations for the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™ will be 32. Contact details for each Participating Member Association may be found at www.FIFA.com.

If a Member Association’s team does not progress to all stages of the Second Round, the right to use Conditional Tickets for Second Round matches following the elimination of that Team will be lost and a refund will be provided.

Member Associations are free to choose which methods of payment will be made available to fans buying tickets from the Member Associations".

We have done a calculation of what 8% represents on our World Cup stadium capacities page.
