Thousands of free tickets, 30 planes with fans leaving – Qatar will be ‘invaded’ by Moroccan fans in the match against France


The Moroccan Football Federation has announced that it will give away 13,000 free tickets to fans in the semi-final match of the World Cup against France.

Morocco has been the biggest surprise at Qatar 2022, becoming the first African team and the first Arab country to reach the semi-finals of a World Cup.

While on this journey, they eliminated some of the favorites to win the tournament, such as Spain (in the 1/8 finals) and Portugal (in the quarterfinals). The Moroccan FA has given away free tickets to fans for several matches in Qatar, ensuring huge support for the team in the stadiums.

According to the BBC, this time, the Federation will distribute 13,000 free tickets for tomorrow’s (Wednesday) semi-final to Moroccan fans in Doha, while it is expected to do so through the Moroccan Embassy in Qatar. Also, Moroccan fans have traveled on 30 promotional flights operated by ‘Royal Air Maroc’. The state-owned carrier had set up seven extra flights to allow fans to attend the quarter-final with Portugal last week, and this time the number is much higher.

“To allow many Moroccans who want to support the national team at its peak and experience the excitement of the World Cup semi-finals, Royal Air Maroc has established an air bridge between Casablanca and Doha,” the airline’s statement said.

Thousands of Moroccan fans were pictured queuing at the Al Janoub Stadium today (Tuesday), where tickets for the semi-final match went on sale in the morning.

About 20,000 Moroccan fans are expected to be present in the stadium to follow the challenge against France, which will take place at the Al Bayt Stadium, which has a capacity of 68,895 seats.
