ABU DHABI, UAE: Tickets for one of the most eagerly-anticipated spectacles in world football - the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 - are available for purchase now on www.the-AFC.com.

After a record-setting group stage performance by Asian teams at the World Cup, the eyes of the world now turn towards the UAE from January 5-February 1, 2019.

The expanded competition, which is set to welcome an unprecedented 24 teams – eight more than the previous 2015 edition – will take place across eight world-class stadiums in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai and Sharjah, and promises to engage more fans than ever before in the biggest sporting event ever hosted in the region.

Asian Football Confederation (AFC) President Shaikh Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa said: “The AFC’s Vision and Mission outlined our ambitions to provide world-class platforms for our teams, players and passionate fans.

“The launch of ticket sales is an important milestone and the UAE is the perfect host nation to unite the Asian football family. I am confident that the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 will provide the ultimate stage to showcase Asia’s remarkable talent and engage and excite more fans than ever before.

“In the LOC, we have a trusted partner who share our ambitions of Bringing Asia Together and to deliver the most competitive and accessible AFC Asian Cup to date.”

Ticket prices for the competition have been set from AED 25 (Approx $6.8USD) to allow as many people as possible — from the millions of Asians already residing in the UAE to the two billion living within a four-hour flight — to come and experience the thrill of top-class, live international football.
