2018 FIFA World Cup™

Following on from our incredible Brazil experience in 2014 with our 'Follow Australia' tours starting in Rio and Sao Paulo, as well as the World Cup knockout stages, here is your chance to get in early and pre-register for the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ in Russia.

Tournament Dates: 14 June-15 July
Group Stage: 14-28 June
Round of 16: 30 June-3 July
Quarters/Semis/Final: 6-15 July

Over 1500 Aussie fans headed over to Brazil with Fanatics to 'Follow Australia' during the group stages and experienced everything; from the highs and lows of following the Socceroos during their group matches against Chile, the Netherlands and Spain through to the world class entertainment provided by the Stafford brothers, Fatboy Slim and the 'Superband' which included some of Australia's best musicians. Memories were made in Brazil that will last a lifetime.

With Brazil now behind us it is time to look forward to 2018 and what an event this will be. Russia will be in all its glory as it becomes the first country in the former Soviet Union to host the FIFA World Cup™. Russia is the largest country in the world and is renowned for its diverse cultures, architecture, food and of course Vodka. With a large number of cities playing host to matches throughout the 2018 FIFA World Cup™ you will get the complete Russian experience on what is set to be a trip of a lifetime.

Following our amazing touring experience during the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, we are more convinced than ever that Russia is set to deliver the greatest World Cup in history. Join us in 2018 to experience this amazing country!

Will There Still Be a Tour if Australia Don't Qualify?

Yes, absolutely!

As disappointing as it would be if the unthinkable happens and Australia lose to Honduras, it doesn't change the fact that Russia is going all out to ensure this will be the greatest showpiece world football has ever seen. With the added bonus of the new visa-free FAN ID system opening the doors to Russia like never before you'll be kicking yourself if you miss out.

No matter what happens in the play-offs, make sure you pre-register to ensure you are first to be contacted as soon as our tours are released. See you in Russia!

FAN ID replacing tourist visas for Russia 2018

Russia is opening its doors to the world in 2018, just as it did for the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2017, by replacing its usual tourist visa application process with a simple new "FAN ID" online application system which makes traveling to Russia a breeze.

As a FIFA World Cup visitor you will be required to carry your FAN ID together with your passport upon arrival into Russia, and at each stadium on game day. By travelling with Fanatics in 2018 you will receive all the assistance you need to ensure your own FAN ID is successfully completed & received. Russia has never been so warm & welcoming, it's an opportunity no to be missed!

Match Tickets

All fans are required to purchase their own FIFA World Cup™ match tickets directly through FIFA.

Make sure you sign up and register your FIFA World Cup ticket account before the Socceroos qualify for Russia 2018. Visit the FIFA Ticketing website here.

The Phase 1 "First Come - First Served" sales phase commences on Thursday 16th November (concludes 28th Nov). As the name suggests, the earlier you book the better! With the Socceroos v CONCACAF second leg play-off taking place on 15th November the timing is perfect for you to snap up your match tickets and lock in your place on Fanatics tour.
