The World Cup will be staged at 12 Brazilian venues from June 12 to July 13.

About 180,000 tickets will be available during the final World Cup sales phase beginning Wednesday, football’s governing body FIFA has announced.

Tickets will be offered for all 64 matches, including the final at Rio de Janeiro’s Maracana stadium on July 13, Xinhua reported.

The last-minute sales phase will begin June 4, with fans able to purchase tickets on FIFA’s official website.

“Sales occur on a first come, first served basis,” said FIFA’s marketing director Thierry Weil.

It is understood the tickets only became available after the installation of previously unconfirmed seats at some venues.

The World Cup will be staged at 12 Brazilian venues from June 12 to July 13. More than 2.75 million tickets have already been sold for the mega event.
