FIFA said on Friday that it has received 23.5 million ticket requests for the 2022 World Cup, which will be held in Qatar in November and December.
The world football governing body said applications from Argentina, Brazil, England, France, Mexico, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United States dominated, highlighting the “enormous demand.”
Argentina vs. Mexico, Argentina vs. Saudi Arabia, England vs. the USA, and Poland vs. Argentina were in demand.
“In addition to eager applications for the final, the most coveted matches included Argentina v. Mexico, Argentina v. Saudi Arabia, England v. the USA, and Poland v. Argentina,” FIFA said in its statement.
FIFA will check that the requests submitted by fans meet the sales regulations and household restrictions before allocating the tickets.
In the event that demand surpasses the number of tickets available for sale, FIFA has said that the tickets will be distributed through a random selection draw. Fans who have requested tickets will be notified via email about the sale next month.
Those who are successful in obtaining tickets to the 2022 World Cup will be asked to register for a Hayya Card and arrange accommodation.
