WITH just four months to go until the World Cup, Wales fans looking to follow the squad to Qatar can now get their hands on the remaining tickets.

Since the closing of the ballots, fans can now buy tickets to the group stages and beyond on a first come first serve basis through the portal http://qatar2022.qa/tickets.

1.8m tickets for the tournament have been sold already.

With all 32 qualifying teams now confirmed, Robert Page and representatives from the other competing nations are in Qatar to prepare for the start of the tournament.

The group are taking part in workshops giving them closer look at the stadiums, training facilities, accommodation and the operational details of the tournament, which is set to kick off on 21 November.

When commenting on Qatar as a host country, Page said: “We’re all looking forward to it. Just being out here and experiencing – seeing the class of the hotels, and seeing the standards and the facilities we’ve got, and that we’re coming into is really exciting for us.”


Wales will be featuring in a World Cup for the first time since 1958, breaking a cycle of near-misses with which Page speaks of with immense pride: “And I’m pleased for the senior players: the Gareth Bales of the world, the Aaron [Ramsey]s, the Joe Allens – those senior players deserve that opportunity, and that was the one thing missing from their CV. And, yeah, I’m just proud to be a part of that.”

The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will take place in the Arab world and the Middle East for the first time between 21 November and 18 December, with the final match played at the 80,000-seater Lusail Stadium.

A huge worldwide interest is anticipated in this new sales period, which will close on 16 August at 10am BST.
