The under-17 football World Cup will be held in six cities — Kolkata, Navi Mumbai, New Delhi, Guwahati, Kochi and Panaji — from October 6 to 28.
The City of Joy will host 10 matches, including the final. Some of the tickets for all the 10 games are available at Rs 480 for all the 10 matches. The next category is priced at Rs 960 for the season, whereas watching all the 10 games from even better category three blocks will cost Rs 1920.
A limited number of tickets in blocks will be available from 19:11 on Tuesday from the fifa.comwebsite, it was announced in Kolkata.
These tickets will be available till July 7 when the draw will be made. After the draw, team delegates will visit all six venues.
After the draw, tickets sales for individual matches will start. Initially, there will be a 25% discount on the marked price. Closer to the tournament, these tickets can also be bought from ticket windows.
Ceppi said these limited number of tickets available from Tuesday to July 7 will also help identify the real football fan because they won’t know which matches they are going to see. “We will give out the name of the city which buys the maximum number of tickets,” said Ceppi. “The 60% discount is available only for the first phase of ticket sales.”
‘Happy with progress in Kochi’
Ceppi also said he is happy with the progress made in Kochi where work had been behind schedule. An arrangement has been reached to have the shops that fringe the stadium closed 10 days before the first match there, he said.
