How to Buy the Tickets?

As you can see, the organizers try to attract local residents with really cheap tickets, while international fans should pay the usual prices. They can get the tickets through the FIFA website after the Last Minute Sales Phase is open now. 

Tickets are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, and they are subject to availability. All successfully purchased tickets are confirmed immediately to the ticket applicants. Visitors or local residents can also buy their tickets in the Ticketing Centre at the Ali Bin Hamad Al Attiyah Arena. 

Another important information to keep in mind is that all fans need to register for a Hayya (Fan ID) Card before entering the stadiums. As access is only available with a valid Hayya Card and a valid match ticket. Don’t worry if you can’t visit the games as you can follow them live in most countries. And you can also check out the betting options for all matches on online gambling sites in France
