It’s almost that time of year again, where Final Fantasy XIV fans from across the globe gather around for an annual celebration of all things FFXIV. As the critically-acclaimed MMORPG prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary, Warriors of Light scramble to purchase tickets to attend the two-day event. This July, FFXIV Fan Fest 2023 will finally return as an in-person celebration after the previous event’s digital-only format and, as you can imagine, tickets are a hot commodity.
After a controversial yet understandable decision to offer initial tickets through an online player-exclusive lottery system, Square Enix has announced that thousands of General Admission tickets are still up for grabs, and are scheduled to go on sale March 15, 2023 at 9 AM PT.

Though several thousands tickets are still available, they’ll be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis, and if the last few Fan Fests are of any indication, these tickets will be scooped up in a heartbeat. Fans hoping to attend the upcoming festival will need to make sure they’re on their toes and ready to purchase as soon as the ticket sales go live.
FFXIV Fan Festival 2023 tickets will be sold through the FFXIV Fan Fest Showclix website, and will likely be priced at $199 per ticket, the same as the initial player-exclusive tickets were sold.
