England fans risk missing the World Cup clash with Iran after FIFA’s ticket app crashed. Tensions are beginning to rise outside of the stadium in Qatar as thousands of supporters queue for alternative paper tickets, with some arguing with security personnel.
Supporters have since struggled to log back into the app, claiming that they have been blocked from doing so. The situation arose this morning when individuals started sharing screenshots of the app on social media.
It sparks fears that thousands of fans will be blocked from gaining entry to matches they have paid to attend. England kick off their World Cup campaign against Iran on Monday afternoon, while fellow home nation Wales face USA later in the evening.
Fans have been told to queue at a Doha convention centre to have a paper ticket printed. But that raises questions over whether those supporters will miss their matches due to long queues.
