Huge interest for FIFA Club World Cup key matches
All Visa Presale tickets available online for the semifinal, featuring Liverpool, and the final have been snapped up.
A total of 24,211 tickets, which were allocated for online sale exclusively for Visa cardholders for key matches of the Club World Cup in Qatar this December, were snapped up in the first 24 hours, according to a statement from FIFA.
There was huge demand for tickets from Qatari and UK residents for the semifinal, featuring European champions Liverpool, as well as the final.
“Fans residing in Qatar and Britain booked their seats in biggest numbers (accounting for 60 and 16 per cent respectively), followed by buyers from other countries in Europe, South America and the Middle East,” the FIFA statement said.
As expected there was heavy demand for tickets to the December 21 final, with all 10,085 seats made available for this match in this sales phase being snapped up on the first day itself.
However, Visa cardholders still have time until October 31 (3pm Doha time) to secure their tickets for the other three match days.
The last-minute sales phase will begin in November and will run until the end of the tournament, with tickets available for purchase at FIFA.com/tickets.
Matches will be played from December 11 to 21 at three venues in Qatar.
