Fans across the world secured over eight lakh tickets during the first sales phase for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. After the initial random selection draw sales period, a short first-come, first-served phase saw a surge of interest from fans in the Arab region and worldwide. The global interest can be gauged by the interest among fans in countries like Qatar, the United States, England, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, Germany, India, Brazil, Argentina, and Saudi Arabia.
Individual match tickets and tickets for opening and final matches were the most popular ones but fans also snapped up Team-Specific Ticket Series and Four-Stadium Ticket Series. In total, 804,186 tickets are now in the hands of fans globally.
Fans who couldn’t manage getting themselves a ticket in this phase will get another opportunity to apply during the next random selection draw sales period, which will be held on April 5, 2022.
