Authorities have not yet announced how many fans will be allowed into stadiums for the first World Cup in an Arab country, which runs from Nov 21 until Dec 18. Football's world governing body FIFA opened a draw which offers individual match tickets for as little as US$69 for international fans, about one third less than at Russia 2018, but a ticket for the final could cost up to US$1,607. Switzerland also topped their group, finishing two points ahead of European champions Italy with a 4-0 win over Bulgaria. Qatari residents, including migrant labourers whose treatment has been a source of controversy for the organisers, will be able to get tickets for as little as US$11. It is the first time in their history that Ghana have failed to win at least one pool stage match having made 22 past visits to the finals, their cause not helped in Garoua by playing for 65 minutes with 10 men after a harsh early red card for lead striker Dede Ayew. Fans who apply now for the different packages, for individual games or following a team, or for special stadium tickets will go into a draw after the first deadline on Feb 8. England's opponents for another fixture to be played at Wembley three days later will be revealed at a later date. FIFA said fans who are successful in a random draw will be told by Mar 8. Malawi’s president Lazarus Chakwera had offered each of those who played against Senegal a payment of 1 million Kwacha ($1,223) if the team advances to the second round.

Seven stadiums have been purpose-built and one refurbished, but as there will not be enough hotels some fans may have to stay on cruise ships for the event. "This is a FIFA World Cup for Qatar, the region and the world, and the products launched today reflect FIFA's goal of bringing the beautiful game to as many fans globally as possible," said FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura. "The first FIFA World Cup in the Middle East and Arab world will be an extraordinary event," said Nasser Al Khater, Qatar's chief organiser. "Qatar cannot wait to bring fans together to celebrate their shared passion for football, experience a new culture and enjoy everything that our country and region have to offer. Mhango had a free-kick that was deflected just wide of Mendy's goal by Senegal midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate, whose earlier yellow card will mean he misses their second round fixture.

" FIFA president Gianni Infantino, who is now based mainly in Qatar, said one year ago he was confident the coronavirus pandemic would be over by the time the World Cup starts, and that the matches would be played in full stadiums. Organisers have predicted up to 1.2 million visitors could pour in for the 32-team tournament.

FIFA and the Qatar government"are committed to putting health first" and would lay on"required safeguards" for the finals, the world body said.

Fans will need a special pass, a Hay'ya Card, to get access to stadiums and this could include Covid test information. All players, officials and fans"must follow the travel advice from the Qatari authorities", FIFA said. Source: AFP/yb .
