Just over 300 euro return from Dublin or as cheap as 150 ex Brussels.  That is cheap considering the distances involved.

So once you apply for the tickets you have to put the passport numbers of you and your friends who are going with you in.

Does this exclude me applying for tickets and entering my girlfriend as the one who will go with me and then her doing the same thing? Do they run a search by passport number and exclude duplicates? 


Yes they will definitely check for duplicate passport numbers.  

Of course you could apply with a different guest.  She could also apply with a different guest and you could still bring each other to the games. However you need a ticket in your own name from FIFA to get a Fan ID.

You will need a valid Fan ID to get into the country and to attend games.  For the Confederations Cup the Fan ID did not need to match the name on the ticket according to an Irish friend of mine and some German ground-hoppers.    

 
You will be going to Russia for thw World Cup next year, gspain?  Regardless of whether or not Ireland are there?
 
 


If I get tickets absolutely. A shame that Ireland might not be there, but still would be a cool experience to attend. The Euros were a blast. 


You should be able to get tickets in this phase.  Pick a schedule that suits you and target a few games.  You could double your chances if you and your girlfriend apply separately.  It should be possible to sell unwanted tickets back to FIFA.  

It could be the easiest and cheapest World Cup to attend for many years.  Great value hotels available in most places on free cancellation.  Cheap flights to Russia although internal flights still not sorted out.  
 


Can we apply separately? Or will FIFA run a search on passport numbers and see that we've each applied for more than 7 matches (the 7 I apply for with her passport number as my guest and the 7 she applies for with my passport as the guest).


They do check for duplicate applications.  They will find duplicate passport numbers.  

To put it simply you have 2 options

1) You apply for up to 7 games with all your correct details naming your girlfriend with all her correct details as your guest.  You get 2 Fan IDs from this account.  

OR

2) You apply with all your correct details naming your girlfriend with an incorrect date of birth, incorrect passport id etc.  From a separate computer using a different address and credit card  your girlfriend applies (using all her correct details) naming you with an incorrect DOB and passport id.  You get your Fan ID from your account and she gets hers from her account (so you both provide the correct details to the Russian authorities).  

You could with option 2 apply for more than 7 games or double up on some games.  Many games outside Moscow will be easy enough. You can see the current demand when you apply.  You could wait until after the Wales game or even change after the Wales game.  


Smart - it's the same name so it would match the fan id, but it's a different number and such. Appreciate it.

Edit: Ony question is do they scan the fan id at immigration to make sure this doesn't happen (e.g. If your fan id that corresponds to the tickets wasn't scanned your ticket won't work at the gate).

They will check your Fan ID at immigration with your passport.  Those details must match.  

FIFA have no access to your passport details.  It doesn't really matter what you tell them.  

For the Confederations Cup they apparently scanned your Fan ID and then in a separate process scanned your ticket.

Anyone still going to be making an application by the deadline (later today)? Or do we just take the chance on faiL tickets should they qualify through the play off?

Applied for 2 'follow my team' packs yesterday eve. Does anyone know do they process the payment straight away or how does it work? Used a Visa Debit card so not sure will that cause an issue.

So it looks like the majority held off on this stage of the application process? I had concerns about not being in with the main bulk of Irish if I got allocated random seats through the current stage. Would prefer to do it though the FAI presuming there'll be an avenue for that after a successful playoff.

I'll only be able to make it away for a maximum of one game if we qualify. No point in me applying now, I'll hold off for the FAI allocation.

+1

I would be shocked if there was a struggle for Irish tickets (if we get there of course) unless we're playing somebody like England

Not that it affects anyone around here, but they've got a separate obese person ticket price category
