2022 FIFA World Cup names of stadia, capacities and tickets

The last seconds on the clock are rapidly approaching.

The World Cup 2022 is almost here after 12 years of planning since Qatar was given the hosting rights.

The choice by FIFA to hold the tournament in the Middle Eastern country is unprecedented, and there has been the expected rush from supporters to get tickets for the historically significant staging of football’s premier international competition, which starts on November 20.

Although the move to a November-December window has brought several logistical issues, thousands of fans are anticipated to converge on the small country for the finals. To follow their team in Qatar, travelers must endure a difficult process.

Tickets

The only assured location to buy match tickets for Qatar 2022, according to FIFA, is through their ticketing platform.

When all 32 qualifying teams were identified, the sales period officially started on July 5 of this year.

The initial window of ticket sales at the beginning of 2022 saw an anticipated 1.8 million transactions, with additional sales beginning in July and August. A great demand was anticipated, thus the remaining tickets were distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Original ticket buyers had the option to list part or all of their tickets for resale on the FIFA Official Ticket Resale Platform during the first ticket resale period, which ran from August 2 through August 16, 2022.
