    Yeah that was annoying, I had multiple applications under 2 different accounts.

    And there is the Wales vs USA game that I bought from someone else, I won't be able to get those tickets printed since I am not the primary account.

    Is there a way to select just one person per match application to print the tickets? I just want it for myself and my friends don't need it
     
  5. Finally got my refund from the Accommodations agency.
    Still waiting for my refund of conditional R16 game.

    Sadly you have to get none or all under a ticket application.

    Ceez, maybe you should ask the nice person that got those US/Wales tix for you and that nice person can order the souvenir tickets and mail them to you....


    (Would you like me to order them for you?)

    Are you getting some for yourself?

    Because it can be annoying to get them, FIFA has to make everything more complicated that it has to be.

    But yes, I would like to get them if you are willing to get them, I can send you money for the cost, it should be like 10 bucks.

    Will these tickets have our actual names and block, row and seat number on them?

    30 of the real sized tickets? For me, I don't think there is any way to make an aesthetically pleasing design with that many tickets. I went to 19 matches and think I can get all 19 souvenir tickets (have 1 actual hard ticket) but even with 19 it doesn't work for me. The Brazil piece I made had 7 tickets and that looked good to me.

    One issue is the Qatar tickets are plain and boring, the only color is on the far right edge and that's the part that could be covered up. I don't see a way to use matte to cover parts other than the detachable end piece. Of course, we don't know what the souvenir tickets will look like yet, maybe they will be more colorful and interesting.

    So my plan is what it was in Qatar, to use the screenshots of the digital tickets. There's a few advantages to this. (1) these are the tickets that I actually used, (2) they are a nice size, because they are digital, and it's simple to make them a bit smaller if I choose to, (4) they have my actual seat and my name is on all but 1 of them, (4) they actually look better to me than the hard copy.

    I have 18 digitals and the one actual hard copy of the Opener which I plan to use.

    I made sure to take a screenshot of every ticket I used before each match. But anyone can still go into the ticketing app on your phone and take a screenshot after clicking "Past Events". The issue is the past ticket is missing some info like name and says "Old Ticket" at the top, which is easily fixable in Photoshop - another advantage of the digitals. It's also faded looking, also fixable.

    So my plan is to get the files all ready and have them professionally printed on thicker card stock for use in my wall piece.

    Hope this helps.

    just a bit more on this. I posted this photo before but this is my 2014 piece with my 7 tickets. I like putting other stuff in it too. Not sure what I'm going to do for the 2022 piece but I don't want it to be all tickets. I got a box of memorabilia I brought back plus I'm going to start looking at eBay. I like making it personal. The tickets will be as they'll be the ones I used. Then use the souvenirs I brought back from Qatar.

    Right now I don't know all that will go into it. Some of the things I have are a pin from each of the 8 stadiums, a small plaque thing of the Final Match, my Outlaws bandana (i included that in '14), a few La'eeb trinkets, sleeve patches, and some flags I got before matches. I'll probably include some trading cards if something good is out there. I also got some oddball stuff like the trash bag I was given when I was in the japan supporters section...that would be unique. I like using the federation pins of the 32 teams, but I doubt I'll do flags and pins this time or it'll look too much the same.

    Anyway, it'll be fun designing the new one whenever I have time. I never got around to doing the 2014 one, still have a box of stuff.

    Hi - Can you please tell if you got an email first for the refund? Or did the refund directly hit your card account from QAA? They have not responded to any of my emails and haven't received the refund.

    What will also be annoying is if they don't include things like category, price, your ticketing account number etc. For the recent euro for example in place of this they just wrote Memorabilia which is super lame. If you're going to cheat us out of physical tickets for your benefit atleast give us an identical ticket to what would have been after, especially since they limit who can order them. No font changes, no paper quality changes either please.

    yes, it's taking a while for them to switch the country; but I have 4 more domestic accounts waiting to be converted.

    Thanks everyone for all the tips shared and the apps. It made a telling difference to the experience I had and help me make few others life easy. What an extraordinary world cup it was! Watched highlights of all the 64 games and still going through world cup withdrawal symptoms.

    Has anyone successfully contacted FIFA regarding refunds?

    I sold 2 tickets for an R16 match and still haven't received credit. They were the only tickets I sold. I paid using a US credit card that I still have active, but the account was a domestic account.
