FIFA sets ticket prices for 2018 World Cup

The cheapest price for a 2018 World Cup match ticket for non-Russia fans will be 105 dollars, football's world governing body FIFA said Tuesday.

The most expensive ticket - for the final on July 15, 2018 in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium - will be 1,110 dollars, FIFA marketing chief Thierry Weil said.

FIFA will sell tickets in four price categories including a category reserved for Russian fans, with the cheapest ticket in this category costing 1,280 roubles (around 18 dollars).

FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura said in a FIFA statement: "We wanted to make sure that we priced tickets fairly to make the events accessible to as many people as possible."

Ticket sales will begin via FIFA.com after next year’s Confederations Cup.
