1.2 million tickets sold for the World Cup in Qatar
The number of tickets sold for the World Cup in Qatar after the second phase of the sale is 1.2 million, the Secretary General of the Organizing Committee, Hassan Al-Tawadi, announced today.“I think the demand is at a record high. People are buying and looking forward to coming,” Al-Tawadi said at the Qatar Economic Forum in Doha.

Fan associations are worried about the prices of flights and accommodation, as well as human rights in Qatar.

“We are trying to create an environment in which the economy benefits, but to make it accessible and accessible to fans, which is not always easy to balance,” he added.

NGOs have criticized the country for respecting human rights, especially the rights of migrant workers.

“Our problem comes from the poor presentation of facts and what the situation on the ground says,” he said.

The organizers of the World Cup announced earlier that a total of 40 million requests for tickets were registered, 17 million in the first and 23 million in the second phase.

Just over three million tickets are available (two million on sale and one million reserved for the International Football Federation and its sponsors).

The date of the next phase of the sale is still unknown.

The World Cup in Qatar is on the program from November 21 to December 18.
