Tickets will be on sale for the tournament from next Monday (July 30).

The UAE is ready to welcome the AFC Asian Cup next year and you can buy tickets from next week for the footballing extravaganza which kicks off in January 2019.

The tournament will see a record 24 Asian nations contest 51 matches over 28 days, with stadiums in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Dubai and Sharjah hosting what promises to be captivating action on the pitch.

Asian Football Confederation (AFC) and members of the UAE’s Local Organising Committee have now confirmed tickets for the tournament will go on sale on Monday July 30th 2018.

In the build-up to one of the most eagerly-anticipated spectacles for football fans around the continent, AFC General Secretary Dato’ Windsor John joined HE Aref Hamed Al Awani, AFC Asian Cup 2019 UAE Tournament Director of the Local Organising Committee, in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian capital, where they presented a giant replica ticket to showcase the biggest sporting event ever hosted in the UAE.

The LOC officials were in Kuala Lumpur to update the AFC on preparations and operational readiness for the tournament, including upgrades and refurbishments to all eight stadium venues involved, as the UAE gets set to welcome fans from across Asia and the rest of the world from January 5 to February 1, 2019.

Ticket prices vary and are dependent on the stage of the tournament, as well as categories of seating.

Group Stage offerings range between Dh25-75 and quarter-final tickets are available from Dh50-150. Semi-final tickets can be purchased between Dh50-150, and for the final, Dh75 to Dh300.

AFC General Secretary Dato’ Windsor John said: “The UAE has a proven track record of delivering world-class sporting events at the highest level and we have been impressed with the progress made by the UAE Local Organising Committee as we enter the final preparations for the tournament.

“The AFC, along with the LOC are fully committed to provide the ultimate stage for showcasing the undeniable talent in Asia. I am confident that by “Bringing Asia Together”, our teams, players and ultimately our passionate fans will enjoy the tournament of a lifetime.”

His Excellency Aref Hamed Al Awani, Tournament Director of the Local Organising Committee, added: “The general public ticket sales launch is an important milestone in the ongoing preparations for what is expected to be an exceptional and impressive tournament in 2019.”

Highly popular: Squash at Emirates Golf Club.

At Emirates Golf Club, swap the luxurious greens for the indoor courts and take advantage of their latest squash membership.

Guests are welcome to sign up for an exclusive promotion at the city’s famed golf club and receive a number of exciting benefits. For Dh 6,000, the membership gives you unlimited access to two squash courts, an opportunity to join the Dubai Golf Squash League and also the chance to take part in forthcoming squash tournaments.

On top of that, members will also receive dining and spa discounts at the Club and get access to the Fit Lab gym and pool until September 30.

“We have launched the squash membership at Fit Lab, Emirates Golf Club due to demand and feedback from our guests,” said Andy Meech, Head of Sports and Leisure.

 We have had two glass backed squash courts at the Club for over 20 years and these have always proven to be extremely popular. In June, we held the prestigious PSA World Squash finals and it was fantastic to be able to welcome the world’s best squash male and female players to Dubai.

“We have had squash leagues running for five years with over 60 regular players signed up, covering all levels of experience and ability. There are many passionate squash players in Dubai and this membership provides further opportunities for these players to come together in a social and competitive environment.”

He added: “We offer lessons through the Elite Squash Academy and coach Nicky Harradine, with all abilities and standards of players welcome. Members receive discounts for all lessons completed and non-members are also welcome to take lessons with us, however the leagues are for our members only.”

With the interest of squash gradually increasing in the UAE with many players taking up the sport, Meech insists there’s plenty of reasons on why people should sign up.

“We offer one of the strongest squash membership options in Dubai run by a team with over 30 years of squash experience,” he added. “We have a great atmosphere within the Club and the membership provides a fantastic opportunity for all levels of player, male and female to enjoy their love of the game.”

“In addition to the membership we also encourage young players from the age of five years old to take up the sport with our popular Junior Clinics.”
