Federation Internationale de Football Association has recorded more than 1,318,109 ticket requests for the 2018 World Cup in Russia in less than 24 hours since the sales resumed on December 5.

Likewise, FIFA pointed out that those interested in buying tickets must make their requests before 12:00 hours, Moscow time, on January 31, 2018, and no preference will be given due to request date.

As per Federation Internationale de Football Association, currently, most applications have come from Russia while worldwide demand remains high and accounts for 34 per cent.

This new window will remain open until late January 2018, and football fans will be able to request individual tickets to all games, except for the opening and closing games, as well as tickets for specific stadiums and teams. In the event that the number of tickets requested exceeds the available inventory, allocation will be based on a random-selection draw procedure.

Tickets can be purchased online using Visa payment cards or Visa Checkout.
