A total of 889,305 tickets were allocated to people from 188 countries during the random selection draw for the first phase of ticket sales for the 2014 FIFA World Cup™. 71.5% of tickets were sold to Brazilian residents, while 28.5% went to fans from other countries. Out of all tickets made available for sale, in compliance with the General World Cup Bill (LEI Nº 12.663, Lei Copa), FIFA offered a total of 342,740 tickets in category 4 to fans resident in Brazil, with priority given to students, individuals over the age of 60 and participants of the federal social welfare programme. As demand from the priority groups was less than the available inventory, 216,618 tickets went to those entitled for discounts in Brazil. All applicants for the 6.2 million requested tickets will be informed by 10 November 2013 at the latest whether they have been successful or not, either by e-mail or SMS.
Please note that the payment amount for the allocated tickets will be automatically deducted from the credit card provided or, for Brazilian residents, there is also the option to pay with a Boleto payment slip. It is vital that sufficient funds are available on the credit card or that payment is made by Boleto within the deadline, as otherwise the order will be cancelled in line with the Ticket Sales Regulations and the tickets will be made available for general sale.
