    Tickets for or to

    I googled both tickets for and tickets to, seems both are used by many people.
    I want to know which is right by grammar speaking.

    and what's better for below? what's the difference?
    tickets _ concerts for?
    tickets _ (a place) to?
    tickets _ World Cup to?

    Thanks

    In most cases, both work.

    For example

    Have you got the ticket (for or to) the FIFA World Cup?
