Prior to the reopening of sales on Tuesday, FIFA says that 1,8 million tickets had been sold.
According to FIFA, supporters from the Gulf Arab states acquired the most tickets in a category intended for citizens of the host country.
Most tickets are purchased in Canada, England, France, Germany, India, Saudi Arabia, Spain, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States, according to FIFA.
FIFA expects to sell 3 million tickets for the 28-day competition, which begins on November 21.
There will be no further qualifying for this year’s World Cup because all 32 spots have already been filled.
Tickets will be given based on who comes first during the subsequent selling period, which will continue until August 16. A random lottery was used to distribute tickets at the conclusion of the month. The second round of ticket sales will begin in June.
The Middle East will host the first FIFA World Cup in a few months. From November 21 to December 18, the FIFA World Cup will be held in eight sites in and around Doha, Qatar’s capital.
Those who arrive first will be given tickets to the Qatar World Cup 2022. FIFA announced that 1,8 million tickets were sold in the first two rounds of sales, but did not say how many more were available. Tickets for non-Qataris can be purchased for as cheap as 250 Qatari riyals ($69).
There are about three million tickets available. The remaining million dollars are awarded to FIFA stakeholders including as member federations, sponsors, and the tournament’s various hospitality packages.
During the first two sales periods, 40 million tickets were sold, according to the organizers.
After the August 16th deadline, there are often more seats available since some people return their tickets. Fans of eliminated teams are authorized to sell their tickets during the World Cup.
Doha is preparing for the 32-team competition, which is expected to draw a large number of tourists despite the city’s modest population and lack of amenities.
In addition to the 1,000 traditional tents, the desert camp will have 130,000 hotel, condo, and cruise ship rooms available. Accommodations for two are said to be available for as little as $85 per night.
Doha’s two international airports can now handle more tourists from neighboring countries thanks to daily shuttle flights transporting more than 160 people each trip.
In addition to increased capacity at Doha’s two international airports, over 160 shuttle flights from neighboring countries will carry people to and from the games on a daily basis.
In November, Qatar expects that the World Cup would produce $17 billion, which is less than the previous expectation of $20 billion.
The country is on track to attract 1.2 million tourists, according to Nasser Al Khater, CEO of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
Qatar hopes to use the event to highlight how quickly it has grown from a little fishing village to a major oil exporter and transportation hub in the Gulf.
