Doha, October 17 (QNA) - The Local Organizing Committee for the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 announced that the first batch of tickets for the continental championship matches had been sold out, with more than 150,000 tickets sold during the first days of the start of sales.
Sales witnessed a wide response from fans from all over the continent, who rushed to pick up the entirety of the first batch of tickets released by the Local Organizing Committee, with more tickets set to be released in the near future.
Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and India led the way globally with a total of 81,209 tickets sold within the first 24 hours of tournament organizers announcing the launch of ticket sales on Oct. 10, 2023.
Twenty-four teams from across Asia will compete for the continents most prestigious football competition across nine stadiums in Qatar between Jan. 12 and Feb. 10, 2024. A total of 51 matches will be played within a period of one month. This will be the third time that Qatar has hosted the competition, having successfully organized before in 1988 and 2011.
The opening match between hosts and defending champions Qatar and Lebanon will be played at the iconic Lusail Stadium, with a capacity of approximately 88,000 spectators. The venue, which hosted the Final match of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, will also host the final match of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023.
Prices for group-stage match tickets start at 25 QAR and can be purchased online through the official ticketing website (http://asiancup2023.qa). Spectators from outside Qatar can also purchase tickets from the same website.
Spectators will be able to follow their favorite team through a variety of packages. All matches will have accessible seats available to ensure that disabled fans can enjoy a barrier-free experience. This includes wheelchair-accessible seating as well as seats for people with limited mobility.
Qatars compact nature means that the farthest distance between any two stadiums is 75 km. This will enable fans to attend more than one match per day. Visiting fans will be able to stay in one venue throughout the tournament, as they make their way between stadiums using a modern road infrastructure and rail network. (QNA)
