FIFA has recommended the holders of tickets for multiple tournament matches book their accommodation in advance and get started with their Hayya, a Fan ID for the tournament that carries benefits.
A Hayya application with a valid match ticket will get the visitors free access to public transport on the matchday, access to stadiums, and entry to Qatar. The official website allows fans to add more events to their tickets, which are sold on a First-Come-First-Serve basis.
The confirmation received immediately after completing the payment must be saved somewhere for future reference. FIFA has advised avoiding any unauthorized sales points to purchase tournament matches.
Only the website is the official source for booking the tickets. Over-The-Counter sales will go live after the last-minute sales phase is launched.
Having said that, follow the official website to know when the next sales phase goes live in late September.
