The trip could be very complicated, much to the ire of fan unions, who have never called it off, should the French stand in Qatar be full. According to FIFA figures, the ticket office for the next World Cup opened on 5 April, while the French space has already received 28,000 requests for venues. This is less than what Russia requested in 2018, but far more than the capacity reserved for blue supporters there.

This figure should be increased further, as the ticket office will not be closed until next Thursday and it has usually taken the past few days by storm. Of all those who made the request, some would certainly be disappointed: the French would only be able to occupy 7% of the capacity of the stadiums where the Blues would play. In the first round, this corresponded to 2,500 places… while an average of 5,000 people applied for each of the three matches.

So at the end of registration, drawing of lots and sorting will be done. Contacted May 31, lucky winners will have until mid-June to confirm their arrival in Qatar, or else they will be replaced by others. Preference is given to members of the Club des Supporters des Blas, and especially to its oldest members. At the moment, France is one of four countries that have requested the most reservations among eligible people.

This excitement may come as a surprise, as traveling to Qatar for the competition seems complicated. Accommodation conditions, in particular, were estranged: some of the rooms offered on site are often at prohibitive prices. The ticket prices for the knockout matches have also increased as compared to 2018, which helps in increasing the travel budget.
