Tickets for the most anticipated football event, the 2022 World Cup in Qatar are in high demand. Football fans all over the world are excited and are planning to personally experience the event, which is happening in the Asian country.
Qatar 2022 is on track to outsell the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, which had the highest attendance in 25 years. The 64 games of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil were seen live by a total of 3.43 million spectators in the stadium. This means that each game had an average attendance of 53,592. The event in Qatar is expected to draw 1.2 million spectators and has already sold 800000 tickets between the time span of January and March of this year with 17 million requests still pending. Single tickets for group matches cost $105 to $210, while seats for the final cost $455 to $1,100.
The tournament is expected to attract 850,000 international tourists, but Qatar’s Supreme Committee told the Associated Press that around 90,000 rooms will be available to the general public. To avoid price gouging and to make room for teams, media, and World Cup organisers, many hotel rooms in Qatar have been blocked-booked.
The event will begin on November 21, 2022, and end on December 18, 2022, the World Cup will be played in eight different stadiums which are within a 48.2 KM radius of Doha as well. The first match for the marquee event will be played between Senegal and Netherlands at the Al Thumama Stadium. The final will take place a week before Christmas on Sunday at Doha’s Lusail Stadium.
