A total of 24,211 tickets to the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019 were allocated in the first 24 hours of the Visa Presale phase. Fans residing in Qatar and the United Kingdom booked their seats in the biggest numbers (respectively accounting for 60% and 16% of the tickets allocated), followed by buyers from other countries in Europe, South America and the Middle East.
Qatar is set to reveal the official logo of the 2022 World Cup with a worldwide media campaign that will kick off in Doha on Tuesday. The launch of the tournament’s emblem is seen as an important milestone for FIFA, the world governing body of football, and Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, which is tasked with the preparations for the event.
By some estimates, the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar is going to cost the tiny Gulf nation approximately US $220 billion. This is about 60 times the $3.5 billion that South Africa spent on the 2010 edition. The 2014 World Cup in Brazil roughly cost $11.63 billion. There’s a lot at stake, which is continually pushing Qatar to add more and more muscle to its security measures.
