Federation Internationale de Football Association says that strict admission checks will be made on tickets during the tournament and fans will need to have a special identification document to be able to enter the stadiums.

Nearly 1.7 million tickets have been sold so far, with worldwide fans scooping up 53 percent of the tickets.
