FIFA, the governing body of soccer around the globe, announced on Thursday that organisers had sold 2.45 million tickets for this year’s World Cup in Qatar, more than half of which were sold during the final sales period from July 5 to 16.
“Fans living in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United States, Mexico, the United Arab Emirates, England, Argentina, Brazil, Wales and Australia led the way and the digital queues by securing the biggest number of tickets,” FIFA said.
FIFA noted that the start of the following sales period would be announced in late September. After the start of the final sales phase, over-the-counter sales will also begin in Doha.
