MOSCOW: Ticket sales have started for next year’s World Cup in Russia.
Fans can start applying for tickets to any of the 64 games, with prices ranging from 1,280 rubles ($22) for the cheapest tickets — a price available to Russian fans only — to $1,100 for top-level seats at the final.
There’s no need to rush with the application, since there’s a lottery system for requests. Applications made by October 12 will be collected and buyers picked at random.
Qualifying is still under way and the draw is set for December 1. Russian fans know the dates and locations of their team’s group games, but not the opposition.
Another application phase will begin on December 5.
