The World Cup, the world’s most inclusive sporting event, is fewer than 200 days away from start. Fans and potential guests would do well to grasp some of the crucial elements ahead of the World Cup 2022, which will be held in ethnically Islamic Qatar and the Middle East. The Manual, fortunately for them, has their backs.

As the deadline for soccer’s most significant event approaches in late November, here’s a look at critical data, country facts, sustainability efforts, ticketing, lodgings, and flights.

Ticketing

In the initial ticketing phase, nearly 800,000 tickets were sold, with the United States among the top five countries in terms of ticket sales.

Through FIFA’s official online ticketing platform, tickets will be distributed in three phases. The last phase of ticket sales will begin later this summer, giving supporters one last chance to purchase World Cup tickets. Last-minute tickets will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis during this “Phase 3.” The FIFA hospitality platform also allows fans to book accomodation and match tickets.

Accommodations

FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 has created an accomodation platform for World Cup supporters, allowing them to reserve accommodations and apply for “Hayya Cards,” which are required to attend matches. The Hayya Card, which must be displayed at Al Bayt Stadium, is the official entry permit to the State of Qatar.

Hotels, flats, villas, and cruise ship rooms are among the housing alternatives available on FIFA’s portal. The portal was created to centralize booking alternatives while also keeping rates under control. The cost of a hotel per night starts at roughly $100.

Fans can book accommodations through regular methods such as hotel and booking websites if they don’t want to use the portal.

Flights

International travelers can rest easy knowing Qatar Airways was voted the “Airline of the Year” by the international air transport rating organization, Skytrax, for an unprecedented sixth time. Qatar Airways is also the first airline in the world to receive Skytrax’s renowned 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating.

Traveling to and from Qatar’s Doha Airport is similarly designed to be as simple as possible. Qatar Airways has 12 U.S. gateways and alliances with American Airlines, JetBlue, and Alaska Airlines, among others.

Beginning now, Qatar Airways is also launching fan travel packages that include official match tickets (covering all stages of the tournament), return flights, and accommodations.

Now is the time to book.

Additional Information

FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will be the most compact FIFA World Cup in modern history. The small country size allows fans to reach multiple games and experience the entire atmosphere.

As the first carbon-neutral FIFA World Cup, the 2022 crew has placed sustainability as a pillar of the tournament with innovative stadium designs and legacy plans.

As the first FIFA World Cup held in the Middle East and Arab nation, fans will also get to experience the unique Qatari culture through world-class museums, beautiful beaches, and traditional markets.
