FIFA World Cup Doha: Ticket holders to FIFA World Cup Qatar matches will be able to bring in three family members or friends who don’t  own tickets, based on the Hayya card, a mandatory document to enter stadiums, organisers said in Doha on Thursday.

The amount of tickets that have been sold so far is fantastic, and we are excited to welcome soccer lovers from all around the world for a celebration of the "beautiful game." Fans will enjoy thrilling play on the field and a variety of off-field entertainment options while being treated to Qatar's warm hospitality. This World Cup will be one to remember and a turning point for Qatar, the Middle East, and the Arab world." More than 2.45 million tickets have already been sold for the event, and over-the-counter sales will start later this month as the next phase of ticket sales. During the most recent sales period in July and August, more than 500,000 tickets were purchased.

The event will be staged in the Middle East and Arab world for the first time, and anticipation is strong throughout the area. The tournament's smallest edition in modern history will be held in Qatar. With the largest distance between venues being only 75 kilometres, spectators, athletes, and officials will always be close to the action.

According to the organisers, there will be a small entrance fee for non-ticketed individuals aged 12 and older during the tournament for up to three non-ticketed supporters. The Last-Minute Ticket Sales period will begin concurrently with the introduction of this feature.

Additionally, during the early stages of the competition, they will have the opportunity to attend more than one match per day, which is unprecedented in the tournament's contemporary history. Our cutting-edge stadiums, including the FIFA Fan Festival, which will serve thousands of fans at the lovely Al Bidda Park, will be beloved by both players and spectators."
