Fifa 18 good news,FIFA is offering discount World Cup tickets

MOSCOW, December 5. /TASS/. Ticket sales for the 2018 FIFA World Cup have resumed on December 5, the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA) said in a statement.

Football fans who like to eat all the pies are set to be rewarded with cut-price tickets for the World Cup.

According to FIFA, "sales phase 2 will be divided into two sales periods." During the random selection draw from December 5, 2017, to January 31, 2018, "fans can apply for individual match tickets for all matches except for the opening match and final, venue-specific tickets and supporter tickets and, if the number of applications exceeds the number of available tickets, allocation will be by the random selection draw procedure."

During the first-come, first-served period, that will last from March 13 to April 3, 2018, "fans will be able to purchase tickets in real time on with immediate confirmation of successful application, subject to availability."

FIFA pointed out that "a total of 742,760 tickets were allocated during the two periods of sales phase 1." "While most of the applications in sales phase 1 came from Russia, international demand increased steadily and currently accounts for 47 per cent of all applications so far. Fans from the USA, Brazil, Germany, China, Mexico, Israel, Argentina, Australia, and England all rank in the top ten in this regard," FIFA added.

Football fans will also "have a final chance to secure tickets during the last-minute sales phase, which will be implemented on a first-come, first-served basis from 18 April to 15 July 2018, the day of the 2018 FIFA World Cup final."

FIFA has introduced Special Access Tickets for people who are obese at next year's tournament in Russia.

They will offer overweight customers 'easy access' into the stadium and 'extra width' seats.

And according to the Daily Star the VIP seats are going for as little as £80.

FIFA says people must have a BMI of 35kg/m2 to qualify for the discount ticket.

They will have to provide "a signed doctor’s note" when buying tickets and may be asked for proof again when entering the stadium.

Nevertheless, the offer has prompted fears of fraudsters abusing the system.

At the World Cup in Brazil, supposedly disabled fans were spotted jumping up out of their wheelchairs to celebrate during a game.

FIFA revealed ticket prices for the 2018 World Cup in July 2016. There are four categories of tickets. The category three tickets prices range from $105 to $285, the category two tickets cost from $165 to $480, while the category one ticket prices range from $210 to $750.

The discounted category four tickets are reserved only for Russian citizens. The cheapest category four ticket is worth 1,280 rubles ($21.5).

"At the request of the Russian authorities, all fans attending matches at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia need to apply for a FAN ID - the official identity document issued to fans," FIFA stated. "Fans are encouraged to apply for this free document as soon as possible after they have received their ticket confirmation email."

FAN IDs provide their holders with the right to travel for free on public transport, particularly on trains connecting the host cities. As for foreign nationals, FAN IDs will give them additional benefits, "such as visa-free entry to the Russian Federation."

The 2018 FIFA World Cup will be held between June 14 and July 15, 2018, in 11 Russian cities - Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Yekaterinburg, Samara, Sochi and Rostov-on-Don
