The 2022 Qatar World Cup has been no different for the Korean team thus far. Fans trekked in droves to Qatar to support the National Team, cheering the team through the group stages and into the round of 16.
This may come to an end, however, as it is being reported that the mostly-reliable Korean supporters may largely be absent from the team’s match against Brazil. According to news reports, Korean fans are scrambling late to secure tickets to the match against Brazil, while Brazilian fans have purchased their tickets well in advance.
The reason for this is simple. According to reports, Korean fans didn’t purchase tickets to the round of 16 match because they weren’t sure if Korea would make it. In comparison, Brazilians were confident their teams would advance to the knockout round and had purchased tickets beforehand.
