If spectators purchase World Cup tickets on the illicit market, they risk being turned away from the games in Qatar. Online ticket sales for the event, which begins in November, are exorbitantly expensive; the final ticket costs a staggering £16,000. Seats for England’s opening match against Iran are going for £1,268, while those for Wales’ match against the United States are going for £1,305. However, FIFA has prohibited the sale of tickets to third parties, and spectators carrying tickets in another person’s name risk being turned away at the turnstile.

The head of the Football Supporters’ Association, Kevin Miles, added: “Buying on the underground market comes with a real risk.” Do you believe the organization of the Qatar World Cup ticket sales was poor?

Officials from the Qatari government have also reaffirmed that fans who are traveling need to have tickets and proper FIFA IDs, shattering millions of people’s aspirations who planned to purchase them once they arrived. The strict rule is the result of Qatar supposedly not having enough space to house fans without tickets. The Three Lions’ match against Iran at the Khalifa International Stadium on November 21 will therefore be missed by a large portion of the typical traveling England fan base. Then, on May 25 and May 29, respectively, Gareth Southgate’s team will play the USA and Wales. Players who have not received the Covid vaccine will miss England’s match against Iran, according to Gareth Southgate.
