USA-Mexico Ticket – Random Selection Draw
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is U.S. Soccer using a random selection draw? What’s the benefit for fans?
By using a random selection draw, all fans have a fair and equal opportunity to purchase tickets at face value. Those applying for tickets can place their request at a time and date within the request period that is convenient to them, eliminating the race to be first in line to purchase tickets. The procedure also allows Ticketmaster time to carefully review all ticket orders to ensure possible purchasers are complying with the ticket policy established for this match. By enforcing the ticket policy, fans who intend to use their tickets personally will have a greater chance to purchase them.
What is the ticket policy? How many tickets can I purchase?
The ticket policy for this match is that households and/or individuals are allowed to purchase up to four tickets.
When will I be able to purchase a ticket?
U.S. Soccer Supporters Club members and other U.S. Soccer priority members will have access to a pre-sale opportunity to purchase tickets as long as the ticket policy is followed. For the general public, the window to apply for ticket orders will be from July 19-22.
Do I have a better chance of getting tickets if I get my name in the random selection draw system early?
No. It does not matter when you apply for tickets during the window from July 19-22. All requests for tickets during the window will have an equal opportunity.
Is there any charge incurred by applying to purchase tickets?
There is no charge. Your credit card will not be charged unless you are allocated tickets.
If I apply for tickets during the random selection draw am I required to purchase the tickets if I’m selected? What if I change my mind?
Once you complete your application, you are committed to the purchase if you are allocated tickets.
