How to buy tickets for the Fifa U17 World Cup

Fans can buy tickets to the Fifa U-17 World Cup tournament at Hallmark outlets, by phone and at the gate.

Tickets for the Under 17 World Cup have been selling fast before the first match on Thursday.

Single-day tickets can be purchased for Dh50 for Category 1 and Dh10 for Category 2. There is also a family package where, for every two adult tickets purchased, there are two children’s tickets free.

For a group, one free ticket is available for every 10 purchased.

Tickets can be purchased in Hallmark shops in Dubai Mall, Marina Mall in Abu Dhabi, Al Jimi Mall in Al Ain, Manar Mall in Ras Al Khaimah, City Centre Mall in Fujairah and Sahara Mall in Sharjah.

Fans can also can log on to the official Fifa U17 World Cup website, call 800 STADIA (800 782342) or buy tickets at the venues on match days.

“The tickets are very reasonably priced and there are options to buy family packages and so on,” said Inaki Alvarez, a member of the organising committee.

“So we certainly hope that the UAE community, not just the footballing community, but as many people as possible, come out to join us in this celebration of sport.”
