“So far, the authorities have arrested some people and taken them to court, they have sent the evidence to the Ambassador, we don’t want anybody to fall into this.
“We are appealing to you not to get yourselves involved in acts like that. We will work to make sure you all get tickets to the stadium, but once you have it, protect it; don’t lose it for someone to pick it up to go and sell,” he warned.

Last week, unconfirmed reports suggested that Qatari police arrested some football fans for buying match tickets cheaper and reselling them between $200 and $300.
