Tickets for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) will be available to purchase online by the middle of this month, according to officials.
Organizing committee member Mohamed Fadl told Egyptian radio that the first phase of online ticket sales will take place between April 15 and April 20.
That first phase will include matches one through 37, while a second stage of sales will include tickets for matches 38 through 52.
“The ticket prices will suit the huge budget of the tournament, the third biggest around the world. We are also working hard to fight the black market by selling the tickets online,” Fadl said.
No further logistical details were given.
Egypt was named emergency AFCON host after original host Cameroon was deemed unready to handle the increase from 16 teams to 24.
The Pharaohs are gunning for their eighth AFCON title, having last won Africa’s showpiece football event in 2010.
