Ready for the challenge: Ahmed Khalil and Omar Abdulrahman (c) will be playing for UAE

With six months to go until the UAE host the AFC Asian Cup, early bird group ticket packages for corporates are now available for purchase.

From January 5 to February 1, a total of 24 nations including the UAE will be batting for glory in the largest Asian Cup ever. A total of 51 matches will be played in eight stadiums across Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.

In support of the Local Organising Committee’s (LOC) aim of  ‘Bringing Asia Together’, group ticket packages allow businesses the chance to bring their employees to celebrate Asia as one. This is the first ticket release from the LOC and offers groups the chance to reserve tickets before they go on general sale later this summer.

Australia are bidding to retain their title after winning the title in 2015 while Alberto Zaccheroni, who managed Japan’s 2011 triumph, will be hoping to replicate his success for hosts UAE.

UAE’s Omar Abdulrahman will be just one of the stars on show and Aref Al Awani, tournament director of the LOC, believes it will be a great opportunity for businesses to watch the elite up close.

“We’ve had a phenomenal amount of interest from the business community in the UAE looking to secure seats to the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019, which is exciting to see,” he said. “These packages will allow local companies the opportunity to bring their employees together for a truly unforgettable experience and in turn support us unite a continent in the Emirates.

“We have a very diverse workforce in the UAE, which includes most of the Asian nations heading to compete here in January 2019. We also have many football fans from these countries and others from Western nations living in the UAE, too. We see a real chance here for employees to be brought together in a celebration of football and Asia.”

Dato Windsor John, General Secretary of the Asian Football Confederation, added: “Asian Cup is the pinnacle of national team football in Asia and the tournament in UAE will be the biggest and best ever staged with the potential for thousands of fans to follow their teams. The UAE is home to a diverse population and the group sales offer them all a chance to take part in this celebration of football.”
