The first wave of tickets for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia will go on sale on Thursday.

Fans will be able to submit their applications via Fifa’s website and tickets will be sold in two phases.

Tickets prices will range from £79 for a second-round group match to £829 for the final in Moscow.

In line with previous ticketing policies, Russian residents will have a special price category with tickets starting at £17.

The most expensive ticket for the 2018 World Cup final, £829 is a £151 increase on the equivalent ticket at the Brazil 2014 final in Rio de Janeiro.

“We have put in place a ticketing system that will enable all fans a fair chance to secure tickets,” said Fifa secretary general Fatma Samoura.
