Qatar World Cup – Thousands of Empty Seats

by admin

During the opening matches of the Qatar World Cup, thousands of empty seats were seen. The organisers of the tournament have said that the official attendance figures for the first match between Qatar and Ecuador were 67,372. However, some sources claim that more than 10,000 fans left the stadium during the match. The stadium’s e-ticketing system failed to work on the day. This led to thousands of fans attempting to enter the stadium without a ticket.

It’s difficult to imagine playing football in a place where daytime temperatures are already stifling. However, FIFA claims that almost three million tickets have been sold for the finals. This may be a bit of a stretch.

A similar problem occurred during England’s 2-0 defeat to Iran. However, the same problem was not experienced by Senegal fans who attended the game between the Netherlands and Ecuador. This could be because a lot of fans failed to obtain tickets, or they did not want to pay the astronomical ticket prices. It could also be because the stadium was a bit of a pain to get to, and many fans decided to head home early.

On the flipside, a lot of fans actually left the stadium during the second half. The official attendance figures have not been released, but according to reports, around a third of the seats were empty during the game. In addition, a number of fans entered the stadium without a ticket, and others were turned away.

The first match in the tournament was played between Ecuador and Qatar, and saw a combined attendance of 67,372. However, some sources have said that the official attendance figures for the game were actually higher than the stadium’s capacity. In the pre-tournament media guide, the stadium was listed as having a capacity of 40,000. However, it is not uncommon for some seats to be empty at all tournaments, and this particular game was no exception.

The second match, which was played between Senegal and Netherlands, had a similar attendance figure, but the venue was fuller. It was also the first match to feature a “max exodus” of fans, as many left the stadium with plenty of time to spare.

A similar story was true during the third match of the tournament. Although the Al-Thumama Stadium is a large venue, it is not necessarily the most comfortable place to watch a football game. Its seating is largely based on an old design. However, the stadium has been refurbished for the tournament, and there are several shipping container accommodations set up for visiting supporters.

It’s unclear why so many seats were empty at the Senegal and Netherlands games, or why the World Cup organizers decided to include the games in the winter months. However, the empty seats that were seen during the match between Ecuador and Qatar have led to fresh scrutiny of both the host nation and the World Cup organization. In addition to empty seats, the official e-ticketing system failed on the day, and thousands of fans attempting to enter the stadium were turned away.
