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.

Qatar could not miss the chance to face African champions Egypt in a friendly game, coach Bruno Metsu said ahead of both sides' meeting on Thursday.
The Frenchman said he was relishing the prospect of meeting the Pharaohs in a match that is not included in the international dates on FIFA's calendar.
"We usually play against unfancied teams before big tournaments but we now have a chance to play against the reigning African champions," Metsu said as Qatar prepare for next month's AFC Asian Cup on home soil.
"We couldn't miss the chance to face the team who won the past three Nations Cups. We will be looking to benefit from that game," he told the Qatar Football Association official website on Wednesday.
Egypt were initially scheduled to face Jordan but the match was called off for undisclosed reasons and Qatar were drawn up as a replacement.
From filgoalThe number of Egyptian fans will surely exceed that of the home fans when the African champions visit Qatar this week, according to the latter’s assistant coach.
The friendly, which is not among FIFA’s international agenda, takes place in Doha on Thursday as part of the Qataris preparations for next month’s Asian Cup of Nations.
“One of our main objectives of choosing Egypt is helping the players get used to playing under pressure from fans,” Bruno Metsu’s assistant Saied Al-Mosned told Modern Sport TV.
When asked by presenter Ahmed Shobeir if he means Egypt fans, Al-Mosned replied saying positively.
“Absolutely, the stadium takes up to 50,000 supporters and I expect 45,000 Egyptians to be there.”
In the same context, some 5,000 Egyptian fans attended the team’s training on Tuesday.
