The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 has revealed that the tournament continues to break records as it reaches its final stages.

Director of Communications and Marketing at the LOC of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 Hassan Rabeea Al Kuwari said the tournament set many records during the group stage both in terms of attendance and the tournament's official platforms.

In a press conference held at the Main Media Center in Msheireb on Thursday, Al Kuwari said that the LOC was keen to provide a unique hosting for players and fans alike, coming on the heels of hosting the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

He added that the record number of crowd attendance has been exceeded, with 1,170,219 fans present during the last rounds. About 3 million people used the Doha Metro and Lusail Tram. The total number of tickets sold for the matches amounted to about 1,200,000.

He said the continued demand for ticket sales shows the great interest that the tournament enjoys among fans on the continent. Attending the matches is not limited only to fans of the teams that reached the final rounds, there are many fans from all over Asia seeking to come together, explore new cultures, build long-lasting friendships, and create wonderful memories.

There is no doubt that the participation of ten Arab teams made a great addition to the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 and the public momentum will continue until the final match. The demand for tickets for the matches is increasing and the LOC calls on the fans to purchase tickets from the official platforms for the tournament to avoid fraud, Al Kuwari said.

Brig Abdullah Khalifa Al Muftah, the representative of the AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 security force, said that no crimes or events disturbing public security had been recorded and that Qatar, thanks to the cooperation of all partners, has become a safe place for hosting sporting and other events due to its long experience.

The AFC Asian Cup Qatar 2023 is heading to its final rounds and Al Muftah calls on the sports fans to use the metro to reach the stadiums to save time and avoid any traffic jams or delays. He also stressed the importance of arriving early to the stadiums, which also allows them to enjoy the events near the stadiums before the match.
