The following World Cup ticket sale will be first-come, first-served, but the date has not yet been revealed.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar has sold more than 1.2 million tickets, according to organizers on June 22, 2022.
According to FIFA, the organization that governs international football, the most recent round of ticket sales, which involved a random selection draw, ended at the end of April with 23.5 million ticket requests coming primarily from Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Mexico, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United States.
“I believe there have been roughly 1.2 million ticket sales. So, Hassan Al Thawadi, secretary general of Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, “people are genuinely buying, and people are eager to come.
During the 28-day event in November and December, he claimed, two million tickets would be made available.
The next time tickets for the World Cup will go on sale, they will be first come, first served, but the date has not yet been revealed.
All 32 openings for the World Cup have been filled as of this point in the qualification games.
Nearly half of Qatar’s population, or 1.2 million visitors, are expected during the World Cup.
Al Thawadi said on Wednesday at the Qatar Economic Forum, hosted by Bloomberg, that the organizers are attempting to prevent scamming fans out of their money even though the local business community should gain from the event.
Expensive lodging in Qatar
The expense and accessibility of lodging in Qatar, which, based on the most recent estimates by Qatar Tourism, has fewer than 30,000 hotel rooms, has been a major source of worry. According to the organizers, FIFA visitors presently have access to 80% of those rooms.
“In terms of availability, we’ve made an effort to provide a variety of products across several categories. So, starting with the more cheap hotels, which cost between $80 and $100 per night, all the way up to the more expensive five-star hotels,” Al Thawadi remarked.
For fans to reserve, 65,000 rooms in villas and apartments as well as about 4,000 accommodations on two cruise ships docked in Doha harbor are now available in Qatar.
The business sector in Qatar, which has faced criticism for how it treats migrant workers, has agreed to reimburse $28 million to those who paid recruitment fees to find jobs in the Gulf Arab nation.
Although it is common in many of the nations where Qatar’s workers are from, charging recruitment fees is prohibited both in Qatar and internationally.
