What is ‘Hayya With Me’
Hayya With Me is a feature that allowed a match ticket holder to invite up to 3 non-ticketed guests to enter Qatar during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. Hayya With Me allowed non-ticketed guests, such as relatives or friends, to enter Qatar and enjoy the festivities, including fan zones, concerts etc. However, they cannot attend any matches without a match ticket.
