The Organizing Committee of the Club World Cup announced that fans will be allowed to attend the tournament matches scheduled for next month in the Qatari capital, Doha, with the participation of Al-Ahly Club.
The Organizing Committee stated in an official statement today, Saturday, that the upcoming FIFA Club World Cup competitions will be held with a crowd of 30% of the capacity for each of the two stadiums hosting the competition.
The organizing committee stated that fans wishing to obtain tickets will have to either submit proof that they have received two doses of the anti-corona virus vaccine, or that they have recovered from the virus after October 1, 2020, or a Covid-19 test proving that they are free of the virus, before the match 72 hours max.
“The tournament will include the audience’s attendance at 30% of the capacity limit for the two stadiums. A comprehensive protocol has been developed for this version and will be strictly enforced,” said Abdul-Wahab Al-Musleh, advisor to the Minister of Health for Sports Affairs in Qatar.
The Club World Cup matches will be held at the Education City and Ahmed bin Ali (Al Rayyan) stadiums, which are among the stadiums hosting the FIFA World Cup for teams in Qatar in 2022.
It is reported that Al-Ahly will face Al-Duhail, the Qatari league champion, at the opening of his Club World Cup campaign on February 4, with the winner of that confrontation facing Bayern Munich in the semi-final.
Al-Ahly is participating in the Club World Cup as the champion of the African Champions League after winning the title for the ninth time in history at the expense of Zamalek with two goals for a goal in the final match.
