The United States surpassed all other nations in terms of the number of World Cup tickets purchased. With around 147,000 tickets purchased to support the USMNT as they make up for missing out on the World Cup four years ago. The American men’s national team will therefore have strong support in Qatar, and it is anticipated that they will advance to the knockout rounds.
Since Qatar will be the only team competing in the competition for the first time, they have sold the most tickets, close to a million. Individual match tickets are available in all four price categories during the last-minute sale period since Qatar will host the major athletic event, with category 4 tickets allocated for residents of Qatar, including nationals and expats.
