With the FIFA World Cup™ two years away, anticipation is already building for one of the most exciting cultural sporting events in the world—and Visa is excited to share the international enthusiasm for football.
As the official payment services partner of FIFA, Visa presents unique opportunities that help athletes, fans, accountholders and clients connect with one of the world’s most-loved sports. To kick off Visa’s Road to Russia, all Visa accountholders will be able to purchase tickets on FIFA.com/tickets in advance of the general public for the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017. The tournament features the six continental champions, hosts Russia and the reigning World Cup winner Germany and takes place June 16-July 2, 2017 in Russia, across four different stadiums in Saint Petersburg, Moscow, Kazan and Sochi. The limited quantity pre-sale runs from November 8-17, 2016—you’ll just need Visa if you want to catch any of the action.
Now, in 16 countries around the world, ticket purchases can be made online using Visa Checkout, ensuring that transactions are quicker and easier than ever before.
In addition to extending access to accountholders for the FIFA Confederations Cup ticket pre-sale, Visa is proud to bring the action to our employees, accountholders and clients around the world. On November 12, Visa will bring the FIFA Confederations Cup Winner’s Trophy to the Costanera Shopping Center in Providencia, Chile to share the excitement directly with passionate football fans in South America.
Visa is constantly developing new payment technologies in pursuit of creating the ultimate fan experience—and making purchases easier than ever before. At the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Visa introduced multiple wearable payment technologies, including a payment wearable and ring. We can’t wait to bring football fans the best in payments, starting with the FIFA Confederations Cup next year.
