its purely the organiser's fault, they've given more ammo for all the haters, it seems ridiculous that they somehow find themselves in the mental state that they deem it necessary to let in people who dont have tickets when they've already sold tickets for those seats. if anything its an insult to people who bought the tickets who paid their hard earned money to get those tickets by not trusting them to turn up and giving randoms their seats.
It's typical 3rd world thinking though. No accountability and the rule of law means nothing.

Qatari apathy demonstrates folly of FIFA


Japan were crowned football champions of Asia this weekend, defeating Australia during extra-time in Saturday’s close fought Asian Cup final, having eliminated the region’s other footballing power South Korea on penalties in the semi-final. The tournament was also the first major test of Qatar as a major tournament host since FIFA’s surprise decision late last year to award the 2022 World Cup to the rich Gulf state.

Sepp-BlatterThe organisers had been quick to get their excuses in early ahead of the tournament, pointing out that, beyond expats, very few overseas supporters would travel to west Asia for the regional tournament. South Korea’s passionate ‘Red Devils’ fans were expected to number in the tens rather than hundreds of fans. So the tournament didn’t test Qatar’s ability to handle a mass influx of visiting fans.

But it is perfectly fair to use the tournament to gauge the level of popular interest in international football in Qatar itself, with the nation hosting Asia’s premier continental tournament for the first time ever, so soon after being catapulted into the global spotlight as future World Cup hosts.

Would Qatar demonstrate a passion for the game to justify FIFA’s decision? No. The Asian Cup was the tournament of empty seats.

The average attendance was just 12,667 across the 32 games. For group round games not involving the hosts, the average attendance was a paltry 8,199, and even this was much boosted by ex-pats cheering on countries like India. Defending champions Japan played Saudi Arabia watched by just 2,022 supporters, and both China and Australia played in front of fewer than 4,000 fans. Even Iran versus Iraq – usually one for the neutrals – attracted only 10,478: the only time either country played in front of a five-figure crowd in six matches.

Not even the host nation’s games played to capacity crowds. More than 37,000 watched the opening tie in the 50,000 seat Khalifa International Stadium in Doha, yet the stadium was almost empty by the end as thousands left the ground with half an hour to go. Qatar’s crowds fell to under 31,000 by the time Qatar were playing China and 28,339 for the final group game, on which their progress in the tournament depended.

The Japan-South Korea semi-final attracted only 16,171 suppporters, while a half-capacity crowd of 25,000 watched the Australian semi-final. AFP reports that these attendances were boosted by the organisers getting thousands of schoolchildren into the ground following earlier criticisms of empty, atmosphere-less stadia.

The final saw a similar official crowd (37,174) to the opening match, though bizarrely, having attracted a fairly decent though not sell-out crowd, the organisers managed to lock supporters with tickets out, citing security concerns over the attendance of a Royal family, and blaming fans for not turning up earlier:

“There was a big crowd outside… The tickets have been issued for six months & [but] people are waiting until the last minute and they want to come to the stadium.”

The Qatari organisers have a very well resourced PR effort. They have claimed that that they sold a higher proportion of the tickets to their (smaller) stadiums than in previous Asian Cup tournaments, but couldn’t then persuade ticket-holders to turn up to the games. It is difficult to see how this improves the outcome, except in showing that an over-reliance on getting corporates to take tickets failed to generate a crowd.

It is true that the Asian Cup does not always attract big crowds, though the Qatari organisers exaggerate this point. It is fair to point out that the 21,000 average attendance for the tournament in 2007 was much boosted by having four host nations, with other crowds no better than in Qatar. However, the 2004 tournament in China had an average attendance of over 31,000, with an average over 26,000 for games not involving the hosts. Of course, Qatar has a much smaller population.

But the rationale for a World Cup venue that is difficult for travelling fans to get to must be that there is strong local interest in the game.

It is obvious that Qatar will have little need for additional stadia after 2022. The plan is to expand current venues, and then to build eight iconic new stadia with capacities over 40,000. Dismantling the upper tiers of these stadia and shipping them to Africa was pitched to FIFA as a “sustainable” solution.

Still, both FIFA and the Asian confederation have been quick to declare the event a great success.

FIFA may at least be relieved that the Qatar team exceeded expectations on the field, having not previously won a match in the Asian Cup finals since 1988. After losing to Uzbekistan, they did manage to beat China and Kuwait to qualify in second place from the weakest of the first round groups – the only one to contain no country with recent experience of qualifying for a World Cup – before a surprisingly creditable 3-2 defeat by Japan in the knockout stages.

That Uzbekistan went on to lose 6-0 to Australia in the semi-final highlights the gulf between the three Asian confederation sides – Japan, Australia and South Korea – capable of being competitive in the knock-out stages of the World Cup and the rest.

There have been previous World Cup hosts who would not otherwise have been close to being top seeds in the draw, such as the USA in 1994 and South Africa in 2010. In Qatar, FIFA have gone further by, for the first time, choosing hosts who would have had next to no chance of even qualifying for the tournament on merit.

There are now arguments within FIFA over whether the World Cup hosting should be shared by other nations in the region.

The most controversial suggestion has been FIFA President Sepp Blatter’s proposal that the 2022 World Cup should be moved to the winter. The status of the proposal is unclear, but the kite was flown deliberately and it would be unwise to rule out the idea that FIFA may return to it. While the summer temperatures were another difficulty for the Qatar bid, supporters around the world would not want the tradition of a summer World Cup shifted to the winter, also requiring the rescheduling and disruption of the football season for two years.

So there may be much more controversy to come over the Qatari World Cup. A decision to move the tournament to the winter might yet even finally provide the spark for an effective challenge to the unaccountability and misgovernance of FIFA.

I've posted my own disgruntled review on Qatar's opening match against Uzbekistan, a couple of weeks ago:

I change my mind, Qatar shouldn't host the World Cup. Give it to the United States, and let Australia bid for the next one in 2026. In fact, I am hoping this would happen now, because I don't think Qatar will pull off a 50-degree Celsius football tournament. Their only hope would be to switch it to winter time, and hopefully the US bidding team sues FIFA's backside, which would force Qatar to concede the bid to the country that got the second highest number of votes. Who knows, it might also be better off for the Qatari people. The US $40.5 billion could be used for far better things.

Ticketholder fury after gates shut
January 31, 2011

DOHA: Thousands of ticket-holders at the Asian Cup were denied entry into the final after police shut the gates before the match began between Australia and Japan.

Witnesses said irate fans - some holding their tickets in the air - were forced to watch the match on a television behind a fence that encircled the 40,000-seat Khalifah Stadium.

''I arrived at Khalifah Stadium in Qatar about half an hour before kickoff yesterday evening, but every gate had been shut and people were being denied access,'' David Jacobs, an Australian who has lived in Qatar for three years, told the Herald via email.

..''There were literally about 5000 to 10,000 people outside the stadium, all with valid tickets, who were told the stadium was closed and no more people would be allowed inside.

''I even spoke to some people who had flown all the way to Qatar to see the final. They also had tickets for the match, but were denied entry.

''This is absolutely disgusting.

''Unfortunately, and it saddens me to say this, this is also absolutely typical of Qatar. This kind of thing happens all the time.''

Some fans complained that baton-wielding police roughly pushed the crowd and ordered them to leave because the stadium was sold out, although there were thousands of empty seats.A spokeswoman for the tournament's local organising committee refused to comment and that the issue would be addressed at a later news conference. Qatar was recently controversially awarded hosting rights for the 2022 World Cup.

World Cup trial run ends on high note





DOHA: The Asian Cup was always going to be a rehearsal for the World Cup after Qatar was awarded the 2022 event, and the nation managed to come through with its reputation largely intact.

“I’ve always believed Qatar can organise a very good World Cup, an amazing World Cup,” said Asian Football Confederation president Mohammed bin Hammam, seen as a frontrunner to replace Sepp Blatter at FIFA.

“For me this Asian Cup was an opportunity for those who had less confidence to witness for themselves what can be done.

“It’s been an extremely well organised event by Qatar.”

Bin Hammam, himself a Qatari, was instrumental in helping bring the World Cup to his homeland.

There are no surprises that the tiny, but energy-rich, emirate managed to pull off a successful event, as it did in hosting the Asian Games in 2006, a multi-sport extravaganza second only to the Olympics in scale.

The country threw money at the Asian Cup.

The stadiums were shiny and modern, the organisation excellent, the facilities top-notch and communications worked flawlessly.

Players were full of praise.

“The tournament’s facilities are top-notch and the organisation smooth to date. I am sure they will deliver an amazing World Cup in another 11 years’ time,” Australia’s Lucas Neill said.

They were gracious comments from the Socceroos’ captain, with Australia one of the countries who had been hoping to host the world’s biggest sporting event 11 years from now.

To general astonishment, they secured just one vote and were eliminated in the first round by FIFA officials in Zurich in December.

It sparked a furious reaction, with Football Federation Australia’s Jack Reilly claiming their bid had fallen victim to FIFA politics and Qatar’s deep pockets.

“I’ve had the privilege to meet the people associated with the bid now and the dreams and the ideas and plans they have for it. If half of it comes true it’s going to be an amazing place to be,” added Neill.

“They’ve got the infrastructure, they’ve got the financial backing, they can do whatever they want and I’m sure they will and the people will love the football here.”

A criticism, though, of Qatar being awarded the World Cup was its lack of football pedigree and Asia’s premier football tournament was played in front of mostly half-empty stadiums.

There were barely 2,000 supporters to watch powerhouses Japan and Saudi Arabia in the group phase while less than 4,000 witnessed China’s thrilling showdown with Uzbekistan.

Few were Qataris.

Even more worrying was the failure of Qatari fans to fill the stadium for their crucial quarter-final against Japan -- their biggest game in years.

It followed thousands of fans streaming out of the hosts’ opening game with 30 minutes left, leaving Khalifa Stadium eerily quiet at the final whistle.

Organisers took note, and attendances for the semi-finals improved with what appeared to be thousands of schoolchildren bused in to watch Australia beat Uzbekistan and Japan oust South Korea.

Despite their best efforts, it couldn’t disguise a general lack of atmosphere in a city that offered fans meagure tourist pickings.

Working in Qatar’s favour is the compact size of the capital Doha, making it easy to get to stadiums despite negligible public transport and few taxis, while there is little crime.

World Cup planners say they will build a new metro system to shuttle fans to games in 2022.

Perhaps the biggest plus point of the Asian Cup was the weather, with temperatures hovering around the 20-22 Celsius mark, perfect footballing conditions.

It is certain to further stoke debate about whether to host the World Cup in the traditional June-July window, when the mercury can soar to 50 Celsius in Qatar, or shift the tournament to winter. Blatter and UEFA chief M ichel Platini have made clear they prefer January, but Bin Hammam has been adamant that it will remain a summer tournament. AFP

Locked out fans can now apply to get ticket refund


DOHA: The ticket holders to the AFC Asian Cup final, who were locked out will get a refund the Qatar Local Organising Committee (QLOC) said here yesterday.

“Once again, we apologise to these fans, and have decided in conjunction with the AFC to refund all ticket-holders who have been denied access to the venue due to Security Closure of Gates. We would like once again to offer our apology for the fans that were not able to enter the Final Match, despite the fact that they had valid tickets in their hands,” the QLOC said.

Fans can apply for refunds through the AFC website (www.afcasiancup.com) or can send or bring the necessary documents and original tickets to QLOC HQ. Football fans living outisde the country can also courier the necessary documents and original Tickets free of charge via DHL, the QLOC has said.

“Football fans living in Qatar can send or bring the necessary documents and original tickets to: QLOC HQ - Qatar Local Organising Committee - Tatweer Tower – Ticketing Department, West Bay, Doha, Qatar, from Sunday to Thursday 8.00 – 14.00. If living abroad, please courier the necessary documents and original Tickets free of charge via DHL (QLOC Account Number 952189844 and Reference: Final Match Refund Application) to the QLOC HQ. Please ensure you keep a copy of all personal documentation and your tickets as well as the DHL receipt as proof,” says the QLOC.

QLOC will assess the Application and refund eligible tickets by the end of April 2011.

Customers who have bought tickets using their credit card will be refunded on that credit card. Customers who bought their tickets and paid cash will be invited to collect the refund in cash.

“Fans can apply for refunds through the AFC website and click on tickets link, download and fill in the Refund Application Form and attach your original tickets to the Refund Application Form along with copy of your Passport/ID. If you bought the Tickets online or at any of the Ticket Box Offices using Visa or Mastercard, please attach a photocopy of the Card. Only whole tickets can be attached. Ripped, damaged, lost or stolen tickets will not be accepted,” the QLOC has said in their press release.

The submission for refunds will be from 3 to 28 February.

The Asian Cup final between Japan and Australia at the Khalifa Stadium was witness to some of the fans with tickets being denied entry into the stands. The gates were locked well in advance before the scheduled start of the match at 6pm on Saturday.

Many had to return home without getting a chance to get the ‘live’ experience of an exciting final where Japan won 1-0 in extra time.

According to the organisers, the gates were originally to be closed at 5.30pm but however with still a lot of fans at the gates, they kept them open till 6.05pm. Fans are requested to contact the QLOC at [email protected] for any further enquiries. THE PENINSULA

How has the agreement to refund gone down in Qatar? Previously you mentioned it's a normal procedure to lose your seat if you don't arrive early, and the fans needed to learn a lesson. If this is a common view, I imagine some would be angry agreeing to pay people out.

5 - Local Organising Committee will evaluate the request and payment of compensation the end of April 2011.

Will be compensated who purchase through credit cards through these cards.

Those who have cash to buy will be invited to collect their tickets in cash value.
the bold part is madness.

There wouldn't have been any need to close the gates if they hadn't let people in for free.

And it's not just about a refund either. People travelled to Qatar purely for the football - some even purely for the final. They had their trip ruined and rendered pointless because the organisers cared more about saving face than they did about those who'd actually supported the tournament.

Faced with possible worldwide humiliation from empty stadiums in 2022, who's to say they wouldn't do same?
