Qatar World Cup is ahead. Fifa ticket sales are also increasing. The governing body of football said yesterday that so far more than 2 Million tickets have been sold for the World Cup in Qatar. The organizers said that more than Half a Million tickets have been sold in recent times.
According to FIFA, between July 5 and August 16, 530,532 tickets were sold. Citizens of Qatar, United States, England, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, United Arab Emirates, France, Argentina, Brazil, and Germany responded the most to buy tickets at this time.
Brazil-Cameroon, Brazil-Serbia, Portugal-Uruguay, Germany-Costa Rica and Australia-Denmark matches are the most in demand for group stage tickets. Organizers said last June that demand for tickets was ‘record-setting’, with 1.2 million tickets sold at the time.
FIFA said these tickets will be released at the “last minute” before the start of the World Cup.
By late August, ticket sales had more than doubled. In total, FIFA has another 3 million 10 thousand 679 tickets to sell. Qatar World Cup will start on November 20. FIFA said these tickets will be released at the “last minute” before the start of the World Cup. However, FIFA has not yet announced the date.
More than 1 million football fans are expected to attend the World Cup in Qatar. The Gulf region has a population of around 2.8 million. With this event in Qatar, the World Cup will be held for the first time in the Middle East. Last week, organizers moved the World Cup in Qatar forward by one day. World Cup will start with the Qatar-Ecuador match.
The organizers of the World Cup put 1,300 buses on the streets of Doha, the capital of Qatar. Never before has so much transport been put on the road to improve communication at an international event. “This is the most complex transport management for any major sporting event,” said Ahmed Al Obaidli, the chief regulatory officer of Qatar’s bus and taxi services.
Ahmed Al Obaidli told the news agency AFP to buy 3,000 buses for the World Cup. He also said that there will be more than 4,000 buses on the roads of Qatar during the World Cup. The number of drivers has also been increased to 14 thousand. Most of the drivers are from Africa and South Asia. Each bus will have five CCTV cameras. From the central command center, the eyes of this camera will be kept inside the bus, so that no one can create any problem.
