DOHA, Qatar (AP) — Problems with FIFA’s mobile app for World Cup match tickets prevented fans from entering the stadium to watch England face Iran on Monday in the second tournament game.
Hundreds of fans lined up outside the Khalifa International Stadium less than an hour before the 4pm kick-off in Doha.
“Some spectators are currently having a problem accessing their tickets,” FIFA said.
Fans were asked to check the inbox of the email account they used to register for the FIFA ticketing app.
“In case fans are unable to access their email accounts, the stadium ticket resolution point can help them,” FIFA said.
