The ticket pricing for the World Cup has been set at Rs 48 during the first phase of ticket sales. The physical copies of those will be rolled out after the day of the draw on 7 July 2017. The tickets will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

After launching the first ticket, Goel said that “the government has made sure that the tickets are priced very nominally. He said people can buy a World Cup ticket for less than fifty rupees, so there is no reason not to come and support this tournament in large numbers. He said, he does not see this tournament as the conclusion, rather it is the start of the next revolution in Indian football”.
