Aspire Zone Foundation to open World Cup football fan zone at Khalifa Stadium on Friday

By QLSports

The Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) will give World Cup fans in Qatar a chance to live the excitement of the 2018 FIFA World Cup when they open an international fan zone at the iconic Khalifa Stadium starting Friday.

The venue will seat more than 2,500 people and has a capacity for more than 2,000 vehicles, providing a unique atmosphere for football fans in Qatar, reported Gulf Times.

The Fan Zone will be equipped with the latest cooling technologies, a giant screen, food and beverage stalls and a children’s play zone. Put together, these will provide football fans with a sneak peek into what it will be like to experience a FIFA World Cup at one of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar stadiums, reported Qatar Tribune.

Football fans can choose their preferred seating area from a range of options prepared by the AZF. These include private partitions for those seeking privacy, areas featuring dining services, including 24 majlis partitions and 18 private skyboxes. 

During the group stages, the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Fan Zone will only broadcast evening matches that start at 6pm and 9pm. Matches will be broadcast via giant LED screens, giving fans the ultimate spectator experience, thanks to the stadium's advanced infrastructure and facilities. 

Tickets will be sold through the Q-tickets website and mobile application. A ticket booth will also be set up at the main entrance of the Fan Zone at Khalifa International Stadium.

Prices may vary depending on the match and seating options. Fans who buy tickets will be automatically enrolled in a raffle draw for a chance to win a valuable car from one of the event’s sponsors. 

Aspire Zone Foundation has also previously set up Fan Zones for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, which housed more than 1,500 spectators a day, as part of its mission to engage with football fans and provide the best entertainment experience.
