During random selection draw sales periods, ticket applicants are invited to apply for tickets that are later allocated among the ticket applicants pursuant to a random selection draw process conducted by FIFA Ticketing. During random selection draw sales periods, it makes no difference when the application is submitted, so long as it is submitted prior to the end of the respective random selection draw sales period, as all applications are processed together for each of these sales period. If demand for a given match and/or ticket category exceeds the available ticket inventory for the domestic or international market, then random selection draw(s) will take place at the end of the respective random selection draw sales period to determine which applicants are allocated tickets.
FIFA Ticketing may conduct random draws in any manner it deems appropriate, including by reserving certain percentages of tickets for random allocation amongst certain groups of applicants and markets, and FIFA Ticketing’s decisions are final in all matters related to random selection draws.
Each ticket applicant may be successful, partially successful or unsuccessful in obtaining the tickets for which they applied. All successful, partially, and unsuccessful ticket applicants are notified by email of the outcome of their applications. If their ticket application is successful or partially successful, ticket applicants will receive an email communication with further information about payment, including the steps to follow and the deadline to pay for the tickets.

2. Categories of tickets
There are four ticket categories for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022:
* Category 1 is the highest priced and located in prime areas within the stadium.
* Categories 2 and 3 are located outside of the category 1 area.
* Category 4 is a seating area within the stadium separate to the Category 1, Category 2 and Category 3 seating areas.
Ticket categories 1, 2 and 3 are available to all fans, while category 4 is 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.
Additionally, in each stadium and for all matches, FIFA is offering a dedicated allocation of tickets for purchase by disabled people and people with limited mobility, these are called Accessibility Tickets. One has to visit the Accessibility Tickets section of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 ticketing page accessible on FIFA.com/tickets to consult information on Accessibility Tickets.

3. Ticket products
There will be three types of tickets available during the random selection draw period for the ongoing Sales Phase (1) of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022:

IMTs are available in categories 1, 2, 3 and 4 (category 4 available only for residents of Qatar), as well as in the Accessibility Tickets category.
* Team Specific Ticket Series (TSTs): a series of match tickets to support a specific national team of the customer’s choice, which allows the customer to watch either three (TST3), four (TST4) or seven (TST7) matches of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. The TST purchased guarantees the customer tickets for matches of such rounds of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 included in the specific TST package purchased by the customer, regardless of whether the national team itself qualifies for such rounds.

It is not possible to choose the matches included in each package, as these packages are fixed.
One may apply for up to six tickets per match and you may purchase a maximum of 60 tickets across the entire FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 competition, per postal address. This rule applies whether one applies for and/or purchases Individual Match Tickets, Team Specific Tickets, Four-Stadiums Ticket Series, or any other ticket product.
In addition, you may apply for a mixture of different ticket products, subject to the household restrictions. However, during the first sales phase, before the Final Draw, you may not apply for ticket products that may translate in the same match or matches played on the same day. Ticket applications for matches played on the same day will only be possible for some group matches, after the final draw, subject to the compatibility rules to be informed by FIFA Ticketing in FIFA.com/tickets in due course.

4. Ticket pricing
Tickets will be sold in Qatari riyals to both residents of Qatar and international fans. All ticket prices apply to both adults and children, regardless of the age of the child.
Ticket prices start from QR40 for residents of Qatar, going up to QR750 for the final for Individual Match Tickets.
Detailed information on pricing can be obtained from here.

5. Other information
FIFA determines the categorisation of each seat in the stadium on a match-by-match basis. This means that the ticket category may vary from match to match; all ticket categories may include seats in different tiers of the stadium (such as the upper and lower tiers); the ticket categorisation remains unaffected by any conditions on matchday, such as weather conditions; and ticket category boundaries may vary from match to match. Such differentiation is necessary to ensure that the maximum number of tickets can be made available to football fans.
For further ticketing information and updates on the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, one has to visit FIFA.com/tickets regularly.
