Ticket Categories

There are four ticket categories for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ (Category 1, Category 2, Category 3 and Category 4), with Category 1 seats being the highest priced and located in prime areas within the stadium. Category 4 is reserved exclusively for residents of Qatar*.* A resident of Qatar refers to any individual legally residing on a permanent or temporary basis in Qatar, including Qatari nationals and nationals of other countries. This may include, for example, individuals who permanently live in Qatar or individuals who are legally authorised to work in Qatar. If you are a resident of Qatar, please make sure to declare this during the ticket application process. Proof of your Qatar residency may be required to purchase certain tickets.

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”. Please 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.

Please note that 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.
