Poland 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup: Over 53,000 tickets sold in first day of Visa Presale


World soccer governing body FIFA and the organizers of the Poland 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup have sold 53,734 tickets in the first day of the Visa Presale. Apart from that, all three games for the hosts are sold out while tickets for the final and semi-final in Lodz are also finished.

According to FIFA, a total of 53,734 tickets were allocated on FIFA.com/tickets/U20WC, which is the only official platform for fans to secure their tickets, within 24 hours of the launch of the Visa Presales phase for the tournament.

Besides the opening match and the two subsequent group matches for the Polish U-20 national team, the most sought-after games are the final in Lodz and the semi-final to be played on June 11 in Lublin – there are currently no tickets left for these matches.

FIFA has encouraged all fans to visit FIFA.com/tickets/U20WC and check the traffic light system, which gives an indication about ticket availability by match, despite the huge demand and the potential waiting time to access the website.

The Visa Presales phase will end on Tuesday, March 5 and after that, fans will have the opportunity to apply for tickets on a first-come, first-served basis from Thursday, March 7 until the day of the final on Saturday, June 15.

Fans will be able to “print at home”, meaning that everyone who has been successful on FIFA.com/tickets/U20WC will receive his/her tickets electronically and be able to print them at home in A4 format.

Each ticket will include a unique barcode that will be checked and validated at the stadium gate and no tickets will be sold at the stadiums.

Hosts Poland will face Colombia in the opening match on May 23 and have been drawn in the same group as Senegal and Tahiti.

Group A: Poland, Colombia, Tahiti, Senegal

Group B: Mexico, Italy, Japan, Ecuador
