The first phase of ticket sale applications for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 has started. Residents and visitors to Qatar can now apply for seats at individual matches or team-specific ones until 13:00 Qatar time on 08 February 2022. Plus, fans will also have the opportunity to apply for the Four Stadium Ticket Series, which allows them to enjoy four matches at four different stadiums.
According to FIFA, this unique offer has been made possible due to the short distances between stadiums in Qatar.
Ticket prices differ according to category. There are three categories for international visitors, Categories 1 to 3, and the fourth category, Category 4, is exclusive to Qatar residents. Category 1 is the most expensive and offers commonly sought-after seats in the stadium. Depending on the match, prices in that category range from QR 800 to QR 5,850. Categories 2 and 3 are cheaper and offer other seats outside those prime areas. Prices range from QR 600 to QR 3,650 and QR 250 to QR 2,200, respectively. Category 4 is the cheapest, with tickets costing from QR 40 to QR 200. Accessible seat tickets for disabled people and people with limited mobility cost the same as Category 4.
