Russia World Cup 2018: How you can get tickets for next summer's finals and how much they're going to cost

The first wave of tickets for the 2018 Russian World Cup will go on sale on Thursday morning.

Ticket prices will range from £79 for a second-round group stage match to an eye-watering £829 for the final, at the 81,000-capacity Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

The most expensive ticket for the 2014 World Cup final was priced at a slightly more competitive £678, meaning there has been a steep £151 price increase.

Russian residents will meanwhile have the opportunity to buy discounted tickets for matches throughout the competition, in line with previous ticket policies offering local residents slightly cheaper deals.

“We have put in place a ticketing system that will enable all fans a fair chance to secure tickets,” said Fifa secretary general Fatma Samoura.

Those wishing to travel to Russia next summer will be able to submit their applications for tickets via Fifa’s official website, and tickets will be sold in two phases.

Applications made during the first phase of the process, which is before October 12 2017, will enter a random selection draw if there are not enough tickets available to fulfil their initial request.

Applicants will then be notified of the outcome of their application by November 16.

The first phase of the ticket sale concludes before November 28, during which tickets become available on a conventional first-come, first-served basis.

Another phase begins on December 5 after the group stage is made and there is also a “last-minute” sales phase from 18 April to 15 July – which is the day of the World Cup final.

The first match of the 2018 World Cup involves the host nation, Russia, and kicks-off on Thursday 14 June 2018 at 4pm BST (6pm local time).

Seven countries have already booked their spot at the World Cup alongside the hosts: Brazil, Belgium, Iran, Mexico, Japan, Saudi Arabia and South Korea.
