As long as there are still concerns about Covid-19, ticket sales for the Qatar World Cup were started in January 2022 at a discount, with locals and migrant workers able to attend matches for just $11. FIFA, the organization that oversees football, has launched a raffle that allows foreign fans to purchase individual match tickets for as little as $69, which is around one-third less than at Russia 2018, although a ticket for the tournament final may cost as much as $1,607. Tickets will be available to Qataris for as little as $11, including migrant workers whose treatment has been a point of contention for the organizers.

From November 21 to December 18, 2022, Qatar will host the World Cup. The first game will take place at Lusail Stadium on November 21, and the championship game will follow on December 18 – Qatar’s national holiday. The tournament will be the first time the largest event in football is held in the Middle East, and 32 teams, including the hosts Qatar, have qualified.
