Interesting to see what the crowds will be like with the exception of the Middle Eastern teams. I don't think they will be that big to tell you the truth even for the higher ranked nations such as Australia, Japan and South Korea.

There is zero positive about this tournament.They are playing in January because it was deemed too dangerous to play in June when its normally held.
Infact Qatar have NEVER hosted an event of any sort in June
Sales for the opening match are just 16,000
Qatar had a fantastic opportunity to showcase "cooling technology" once and for all,but never took the chance knowing it was unachievable.They have known for 4 years that they were hosting and a few more that they were bidding.Plenty of time to get all the facilities cooled-after all its only 5 stadiums and it didn't need to be carbon neutral

Not only that MBH has played politics the whole way and besides being the ONLY candidate for the 2015 Asian Cup-it won't be announced till January-----------after the WC bidding process.
I'm expecting pitiful crowds-I hope its a massive failure

The top players and their managers are NOT happy its in January

Manchester United midfielder Park Ji-sung admits he's unhappy to be leaving the club next month for the Asian Cup.

Having been one of United's most impressive performers recently, Park accepts that, for once, he will head home with a heavy heart.

"I have mixed feelings about the Asian Cup," he said.

"At the moment I am playing with confidence, so I do feel a bit strange about going.

I think there going along well with this tournament although I'm not sure about ticket sales. They seem to have promoted it will within the arab states but interesting to see how many fans recieve it.

I would like to go but I can't justify spending 3 weeks in Doha when 3 hrs was more than enough Last time I was there. I'm sure the Aussie fans will haev fun though. Despite what people are saying there are plenty of places to drink in Doha and Dubai is not too far away if you want to go get royally pissed.

Yes, me too, as Toffee fan, am unhappy, especially when Everton is in almost relegation battle, this period could be main part of season, and we are losing our best player.


And about Cup, I expect maximum of 5k per match in whole group stage. Maybe bigger crowds will come up when KSA, UAE and other Gulf nations take part.

And fact that only 16k sold tickets by now, for opening match, is just "awesome". That speaks a lot about Qatari passion and love for football, mentioned during WC bidding process. Nice.

16K tickets were sold 3 months ago

However there are news reports that show that the opening match is ALMOST sold out.

Qatar have to improve the challenge to make this competition popular and to have matches with correct atendance in small stadiums.

This AFC cup will be checked by all anti-Qatar 2022.

Not to mention Qatar hosting the 2022 World Cup has grabbed attention of many footballers in Asia, I expect a higher attendance than what was expected before the announcement.

I have a friend working in AFC Office, and I know for a fact that the ticket sales are higher than what you mentioned. I don't remember exactly what he said, but I know he wont tell me again if he knows I will publish it. too bad

Perennial whinger Moyes can STFU! sure when he 'first' signed Cahill, Australia were in Oceania, but we've been in AFC since 2006, in which time St Tim has signed at least one contract extension under Moyes at Everton! Moyes is just a serial club vs country whinger. I'd like to slap him up side the head!
