Ticket sales for the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 will go on sale effective Monday noon, organisers said today.
After a record-setting group stage performance by Asian teams at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the eyes of the football world now turn towards the UAE from January 5th through February 1st, 2019.
The Asian Football Confederation President Sheikh Salman Ebrahim Al Khalifa said, "The AFC's vision and mission outlined our ambitions to provide world-class platforms for our teams, players and passionate fans.
"The launch of ticket sales is an important milestone and the UAE is the perfect host nation to unite the Asian football family. I am confident that the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 will provide the ultimate stage to showcase Asia’s remarkable talent and engage and excite more fans than ever before."
The expanded competition, which is set to welcome an unprecedented 24 teams – eight more than the previous 2015 edition – will take place across eight world-class stadiums in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai and Sharjah, and promises to engage more fans than ever before in the biggest sporting event ever hosted in the region.
