According to spectators, organizers ensured that paid ticket-holders made it to their seats tonight, after hundreds complained about being turned away from the semi-finals on Wednesday.
Qatar will face off against France in two day’s time.
Following Sunday’s finals, star performers Kylie Minogue and Taio Cruz will close out the tournament with a concert at the Lusail Hall.
Tickets to the finals can be bought online here and range in price from QR75 to QR500 a seat.
Who’s going? Thoughts?
