Around 100 Argentinian supporters gathered in Doha on Friday.

They ask for help from their federation to obtain tickets for the World Cup final and denounce tickets resold at prohibitive prices.

“What we want is to have access to tickets at the official price.

What happens is they're resold for around $5,000, and that's a lot of money for those of us who have been there since the beginning and bought a lot of tickets.

We don't want any problems.

What we want is that as Argentines we can encourage our selection once again,” explains Cintia.

Like her, many other disappointed people hang out in front of the hotel which houses the Argentine football federation.

Roberto also has no ticket for Sunday's final between Argentina and France.

“It's a business for the few.

I had to buy all my tickets for Argentina matches on resale.

Any reseller outside the stadium had no less than 15 or 20 tickets, not counting those he had in the application on their phone, ”annoys this forty-year-old.

“We are asking the Argentine Football Association to help us get tickets at the official price because resale already costs 2,000, 3,000, 4,000 dollars.

We know there are tickets available!

“, gets angry Gabriela.

Since the start of the World Cup, more than 30,000 Argentines have been in Qatar.
