More than 150,000 tickets for the eagerly anticipated AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 have been sold since sales began a week ago on October 10, 2023.
This constituted the entirety of the first batch of tickets that were released by the Local Organising Committee (LOC) for Asia’s crown jewel, which takes place between January 12 and February 10, 2024.
Qatar, Saudi Arabia and India led the way globally for sales, with a total of 81,209 tickets being sold within the first 24 hours of the launch of ticket sales.
More tickets will be released for sale by the LOC in the near future and spectators can book seats for any of the 51 matches that will take place in Qatar, which includes the opening and final matches at Lusail Stadium – an 88,000-seat venue that hosted the final match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup – Qatar.
Prices for match tickets start from as low as QAR 25 (approximately USD6.8) to enable greater access for the millions of passionate Asian football fans, who can purchase tickets online at <u<the-AFC.com
With more than half of the world’s population within a five-hour radius of Qatar, travelling fans can also purchase tickets from the same website.
Nine stadiums will host the thrilling contests between the Continent’s top 24 teams across six groups. Seven of the venues previously hosted matches during Qatar 2022 – Lusail, Al Bayt, Khalifa International, Al Janoub, Ahmad bin Ali, Al Thumama and Education City stadiums. Two other stadiums – Jassim bin Hamad and Abdulla bin Khalifa stadiums – have been added to the roster of state-of-the-art facilities that will host the tournament.
Spectators will be able to book up to 10 tickets per transaction, subject to availability, and can choose to follow their favourite team through the Group Stage and into the knockouts e. All matches will have accessible seats available to ensure that disabled fans can enjoy a barrier-free experience. This includes wheelchair accessible seating as well as seats for people with limited mobility.
Qatar’s compact nature and seamless connectivity means that the farthest distance between any two stadiums is 75km. This will enable fans to attend more than one match per day. Visiting fans will be able to stay in one venue throughout the tournament, as they make their way between stadiums using a modern road infrastructure and rail network.
Fans will be able to download the tickets to their digital wallets, meaning that internet connectivity is not required when presenting their digital tickets at the stadium.
This creates both a seamless and paper-free experience, reaffirming Qatar’s commitment to delivering a sustainable tournament. Fans wishing to resell their tickets will be able to do so through the tournament’s official ticket resale platform.
Travelling fans can also benefit from the extensive and wide-ranging hospitality options made available by MATCH Hospitality Asia, the exclusive provider of the commercial hospitality programme for the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023.
