Unlike the last World Cup in Russia, the 2022 tournament will be held in Qatar, an Arab country whose sole border is with Saudi Arabia in the south. It is a peninsula that juts into the Persian Gulf. Although it is the host of the tournament, Qatar is a country that is smaller than many of the other countries that will compete in this tournament.
There are several different types of World Cup tickets available for fans to buy. Tickets are divided into four categories: Category 1, 2, 3, and 4. The category 1 ticket is the most expensive seating, costing over $1600, and includes the opening and quarter-final matches. Other types of tickets include Individual Match Tickets, Accessibility Tickets, and Four-Stadium Ticket Series.
The FIFA Four-Stadium Ticket Series will provide fans with four different stadiums to watch matches at, allowing fans to experience different matches. In this category, tickets will be sold in Qatari riyals (QAR), a currency that is used exclusively for World Cup tickets. Depending on the stadium, the price range of these tickets will vary.
The individual Match Tickets are available in categories 1, 2, 3 and 4. All matches of competition will be covered by these tickets, including the opening and closing matches. Tickets will be available for both local and international fans. These tickets are also available in the Accessibility Tickets category for fans who are visually impaired or have other physical disabilities.
The category 3 ticket is the most affordable ticket available. This ticket is located in the stadium behind the goals. Compared to other stadiums, it offers better seating and amenities, though the price is a little higher. Category 3 tickets will sell for around 11 U.S. dollars, though prices may change during the tournament.
The category 2 ticket is another cheaper option. This ticket is located in the stadium outside of Category 1. Category 2 tickets are available for local residents and non-Qatari nationals. Non-Qatari nationals can buy Category 2 tickets for 40 riyals (about $11), while residents can buy Category 2 tickets for QAR 40.
The category 4 ticket is available only to residents of Qatar. Qatari nationals can buy Category 4 tickets for a discounted price. Residents can apply for a digital Hayya card, which allows them to enter the stadium. If you are planning to attend the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, be sure to apply for a Hayya card as soon as possible.
The category 5 ticket is for residents of Qatar who have a work permit. This ticket is reserved for local residents and residents of other countries who are unable to purchase tickets in Qatar. Generally, tickets in this category are sold for Qatari riyals, but in some cases the price is set in U.S. dollars.
The category 1 ticket is also available, but it is the most expensive category. This ticket includes the opening and closing matches, as well as the quarter-final match. This ticket is arguably the best seating available for the stadium. The price for Category 1 tickets is 5,850 Qatari riyals (about $1607).
