The AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 may be several months away, but the excitement for the tournament is palpable.

Officials from the tournament’s Local Organising Committee released the first batch of competition tickets on October 10 and fans from across Asia lapped up the more than 150,000 tickets on offer. More tickets are set to be released in the coming days.

A total of 81,209 tickets were sold within the first 24 hours of ticket launch. The most number of tickets were purchased in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and India.

Twenty-four teams, from across Asia, will compete for the top prize. A total of 51 matches will be held in nine stadiums in Qatar between January 12 and February 10, 2024. This will be the third time Qatar is hosting the competition, after organising it in 1988 and 2011. 

The opening game, between hosts and defending champions Qatar and Lebanon, will be played at the iconic Lusail Stadium. The venue, which hosted the Final of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, will also host the title decider of the Asian event.

Prices for group-stage match tickets start at QAR25 and can be purchased online through the official ticketing website. Spectators from outside Qatar can also purchase tickets from the website. Hayya will not be a prerequisite to enter stadiums.

All tickets for the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 will be digital. They can be presented as mobile tickets from any mobile device. Fans will be able to download the tickets to their digital wallets, meaning they don’t need Internet connectivity at the stadium.

This creates both a seamless and paper-free experience, reaffirming Qatar’s commitment to delivering a sustainable tournament. Fans wishing to resell their tickets will be able to do so through the tournament’s official ticket resale platform.
