If selected, you will be able to purchase up to two tickets during the exclusive player window, which runs from March 20-26and Square Enix says there will be enough tickets to ensure all selected players can purchase up to two tickets, so you won’t have to rush when you’re selected.

After this exclusive sales period, 2,023 tickets will go on general sale on March 29, although Square Enix points out, “It is possible that the entire supply of tickets may be sold during the exclusive player purchase period, leaving no tickets for the general sale period,” so he recommends that all those interested register their interest now to avoid disappointment.
