Still months before the World Cup in Qatar and FIFA has already received 3 million ticket requests. There is high demand to watch some of the World Cup’s biggest group-stage games, even with the issues of the nation’s ability to accommodate fans.
Data issued by The Associated Press by FIFA shows there have been 2.5 million ticket requests to see Argentina play Mexico on November 26. That game is set to be played at Lusail Stadium which has a capacity of 80,000 people. 1.4 million fans requested to see England face the United States the next day at the Al Bayt Stadium which has a 60,000-capacity.
A random draw will be conducted to allocate tickets for matches where demand surpasses capacity. All stadiums are built around the capital, so the tournament lacks the various tourist attractions that the World Cups in Brazil and Russia offered. There have been 3 million ticket requests for the final even though prices went up 46 per cent.
