Qatar World Cup Venue: 50% Tickets Will Be Given To Fans That Recovered From Corona Virus


Half the ticket for the newly completed stadium will be reserved for fans who have recovered from Corona Virus, the county FA said on Monday.
The third new stadium( the Al-Rayyan Venue) to be completed ahead of 2022, will host the domestic Emir Cup final on December 18 and will welcome around half of its 40,000 capacity.
“Anyone who enters the stadium must return either a negative Covid-19 test or a positive Covid-19 antibodies test,” Abdul Wahab al-Musleh, Qatar’s deputy chief medical officer, said in a statement issued by the QFA.
“About 50 percent of the available seats will be allocated to people who have previously contracted the virus.”
Fans will be required to undergo tests at one of three locations where their ticket application will be linked to their national identity cards and phone number. They will then be eligible for a non-transferable ticket once they receive the required test result.
Fans will be required to wear a mask once they’re inside, stay in their allocated seat and show their contact tracing app.
“This is the first time Qatar has hosted a match on this scale under such exceptional circumstances,” added Musleh.
Qatar has slowly been welcoming fans back to stadiums, allowing attendances of up to 30 percent in the top-flight Qatar Stars League. Al-Sadd, coached by Xavi Hernandez will take on Al-Arabi for Emir cup final.
Al-Rayyan, located 24 kilometres (15 miles) west of the capital Doha, will host seven matches during Qatar 2022 up to and including the round of 16 stage.
