-          “Easy Access Standard” for disabled people, people with limited mobility and people with other medical conditions;

-          “Easy Access Amenity” for people with guide dogs or people with a medical condition with assistance dogs and people that need additional leg space due to limited mobility;

-          “Obese Persons” (Easy Access Extra-Width seats), for people with a BMI that is equal to or exceeds 35kg/m2.

The location of the available seats for Special Access Tickets customers varies from stadium to stadium.


FIFA and CAFE are keen to see many disabled fans enjoy the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017, and urge disabled fans to apply online for Special Access Tickets.


To apply for Special Access Tickets, visit the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 ticketing website at www.fifa.com/tickets and select the option ‘Show Special Access Ticket Categories’ on the online application form. You will find this option within the “Select your Tickets” page of the online form, just before the list of Ticketing Products available for purchase.


Please note that customers who apply for and purchase Special Access Tickets are required to provide proof of eligibility documents as part of the Ticket Application process. Such proof of eligibility must be provided upon Ticket collection (if applicable) and, upon request, at the entrance to the Stadium.


For Wheelchair User, Easy Access Standard or Easy Access Amenity Tickets, presentation of a proof that is commonly and widely accepted in the Ticket Applicant’s country of residence will be required. In Russia, acceptable proofs of eligibility include a certificate of degree of disability and a medical certificate. For Obese Person Tickets, presentation of a signed doctor’s note stating the person’s BMI will be required. The minimum BMI in order to require and therefore be eligible for an Obese Person Ticket is 35 kg/m2.


With the sole exception of obese people, successful disabled Ticket Applicants for Special Access Tickets in the types “Wheelchair Users”, “Easy Access Standard” or “Easy Access Amenity” will be offered the opportunity to receive on a complimentary basis one additional Ticket for a companion to assist and accompany them to the Match. The companion will be seated as close as possible to the Special Access Ticket customer, however, the exact location of the seat cannot be guaranteed. FIFA cannot ensure that the seat for the companion will be adjacent to that of the Special Access Ticket customer.
