Meanwhile, Hassan Rabia al-Kuwari, executive director of Sales, Marketing and Communication, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, said the latest ticket sales phase marks a golden opportunity to get hold of a match ticket. This is because tickets are limited, and around 1.8mn tickets have been sold in the previous phases, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reports.
The official explained that this sales phase comprises the majority of World Cup tickets to be sold, adding that 40.5mn ticket requests were received in the previous phases.
Al-Kuwari warned against fraud websites, stressing that there is only one website through which one can purchase tickets - FIFA.com/tickets
Further, he explained that tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, and ticket purchases will be processed as real-time transactions subject to availability. All successfully purchased tickets will be confirmed immediately to the ticket applicants.
Fans coming from outside Qatar will be able to use the digital Hayya Card as an entry visa to the country. Also, as a rule, all fans coming from abroad must confirm their stay plans after purchasing their tickets, in order to enter Qatar and gain access to stadiums.
As for one-day fans, they are also required to obtain a Hayya Card as a permit to enter the country. However, there is no need to provide an accommodation reservation. In order to activate a Hayya Card, one must meet a number of these requirements: obtaining match tickets and booking a return flight ticket.
