he remaining tickets for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar slated for later this year will go on sale from July 5 on a first-come first-served basis.
Global football governing body FIFA said on Thursday that the tickets would be available via the FIFA homepage for the tournament.
Around 1.8 million tickets have already been sold for the tournament which runs from Nov. 21 to Dec. 18.

Recall that FIFA had in late May announced the closure of the random selection draw sales period of Sales Phase (2) for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ tickets.
The second ticket sales phase for the Qatar World Cup started in April, with fans able to apply for tickets for two matches on one day.
“Payments of allocated tickets during the second Random Selection Draw sales period that finished on 28 April 2022 are no longer accepted,” FIFA stated.
TNG reports that There are going to be four matches per day in the group stage in view of the tournament’s uniquely compact nature and short travel times between the eight venues.
FIFA is now offering fans a chance to watch two games on one day for the first time.
The supporter tickets meanwhile can be ordered for group stage matches of their team, and a conditional supporter ticket includes a possible last 16 game of the respective team.
FIFA is also offering a four-stadium ticket for those who want to watch four games on successive days at four different venues, while individual match tickets are also available.
Some 800,000 tickets were sold in the first sales period for the Nov. 21 to Dec. 18 tournament.
