Following the Final Draw for the World Cup on Friday, the final tournament match schedule has been published on

Given the compact nature of Qatar, event organizers were able to assign – for the first time – group stage games to a stadium and kickoff time for each matchday after the final draw. This facilitated a match schedule for benefit and comfort of spectators, teams, media and the global audience.

Fans will have another chance to apply for World Cup tickets during the next random selection draw sales period, which will launch on on Tuesday, April 5 at 5 a.m. ET.
