World football's governing body ruled that poppies flouted regulations banning political, religious or personal symbols on kits and in stadiums, leading British nations to push for a change.
Fifa is set to lift the ban on the poppy following talks with the football associations of the United Kingdom.
Prime Minister Theresa May hit out at what she called the "outrageous" Fifa ban, telling MPs in the House of Commons: "Our football players want to recognise and respect those who have given their lives for our safety and security".
The game will be confirmed next month, presuming both teams have booked their place at the World Cup finals, and Federation Internationale de Football Association will then formally agree to the symbols being worn. "I think it is absolutely right that they should be able to do so".
According to reports, Federation Internationale de Football Association negotiated with the home nations and proposed revised provisions last week which would mean the poppy could be worn as long as the match organisers and each team's opponents agree on its use ahead of a particular fixture.
German FA chiefs have already given their blessing for England to wear the poppy symbol.
Iran has been fined for "religiously motivated displays" during a match.
The outcome means that players may now wear poppies providing their opponents have approved it and they have informed the match organisers.
When England and Scotland defied the ruling, by wearing a black armbands with poppy during their match on 11 November, they ended up being fined.
The new law is expected to be passed in time for November's worldwide games, which are to be played between 6 and 14 November - a period that incorporates Remembrance weekend.
A year ago the FA maintained that the Poppy - used since 1921 to commemorate military personnel who have died in war - did not fall into any of these categories.
According to BBC Sport, due to FIFA's change of heart, it is likely that the aforementioned fines against the aforementioned FAs will now not have to be paid either.
