Ticket sales for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar are at a peak. FIFA has released official data which shows that the country has sold 2.8 million tickets by the start of the tournament. Fans who want to attend the event are advised to purchase tickets from official channels, as unauthorized sales are prohibited. FIFA has warned that unauthorized sellers face a fine of 250,000 Qatari riyals.
World Cup organizers will provide fans with subsidized accommodation and travel throughout the tournament. This is the first time a host nation will pay for groups of fans from all competing nations to attend the event. The offer was made as part of a fan engagement program started in 2020. Fans who are chosen to attend the tournament will be expected to adhere to their contract, which requires them to perform a song related to their country and report any social media posts critical of Qatar.
Fans who wish to resell their tickets will need to do so through the official FIFA resale platform. Tickets purchased through this platform will be processed as a real-time transaction. The amount you can resell will depend on the exchange rate at the time. In addition, you will have to pay a small resale fee. If you have trouble locating a seller on the platform, you can contact the FIFA ticketing centre for assistance.
Fans who wish to attend the tournament will also need to apply for a Hayya (Fan ID) card. This is required to enter Qatar and access stadiums. You can apply for the card after you’ve been issued with a ticket. It will also give you free travel on public transportation in Qatar. You can check on the status of your application on your FIFA ticketing account. If you are successful, you will receive an email.
There will also be a number of Four-Stadium Ticket Series to choose from. These tickets allow fans to watch three matches in a series. The categories available include Category 1, Accessibility Tickets and Team Support Tickets (TST). These tickets are available for all matches of the competition. The price ranges from 40 riyals ($11) to 5,850 riyals ($1,607). The cost for visitors is one-third cheaper than the Russia World Cup.
Organizers of the World Cup have also said they will require fans to attend the opening ceremony of the tournament. This will be five minutes long, and will feature a segment dedicated to fans. It will include a song chosen by the tournament organizers. The World Cup has a history of using schoolchildren to fill stadiums. It also uses migrant workers to build its infrastructure. However, these workers have been criticized for their treatment and have been largely from southwest Asia.
FIFA has also warned fans against buying tickets from social media sites. They’ve also advised fans to follow Covid-19 measures and to follow travel advice from the Qatari authorities. The Supreme Committee of FIFA has reached out to national federations in 2020, and asked them to put their fan groups in contact with the organization. The Supreme Committee said they want to better understand what fans are looking for when they visit Qatar for the tournament. They also asked to be put in contact with leading fan groups.
