Ticket prices for the 2018 World Cup have increased on 2014 prices with a ticket for the Final in Moscow costing more than $1,000.

The tournament begins in less than two years time, and Russian natives will be able to take advantages of heavily discounted ticket prices, compared to foreigners looking for tickets. 

It will cost fans at least $105 a ticket to see the group games in the 12 different stadia in 11 citities. 

“We wanted to make sure that we priced tickets fairly to make the events accessible to as many people as possible", FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura said, at the launch in Moscow.

"We therefore conducted thorough market research and have priced the tickets accordingly. The teams that have qualified to date for the ‘Tournament of Champions’ promise a great football festival here in Russia next year." 

Tickets for next year's Confederations Cup are expected to go on sale in November, with World Cup tickets going on sale to fans next summer.

The hosts will compete in the opening match of the World Cup, in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on June 14th. Russia will also take part in the opening game of next year's Confederations Cup on June 17th in the Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg.
