Liverpool have been given a total of just 1,500 tickets for both their matches at the Club World Cup in Qatar in December.

FIFA has set aside just 600 for the club to sell for the semi-final, scheduled to take place on December 18, and 900 for the third-place play-off and final, which are held at the same ground on December 21.

The club have been allocated only five pairs of wheelchair and personal assistant tickets and 10 pairs of accessible tickets.

Doha’s Education City Stadium, being built for the World Cup in 2022, is listed to have a capacity of 45,350.

FIFA announced on Thursday a total of 27,896 tickets have already been allocated via pre-sale, with 60 per cent secured by fans based in Qatar.

All available pre-sale tickets for Liverpool’s semi-final and the final have been sold. Another online FIFA ticket sale will take place on November 14.

Liverpool’s participation in the competition looks likely to impact their Carabao Cup plans too, with Jurgen Klopp threatening to pull the Reds out of the competition.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are being tipped to pull off a Naby Keita style deal to sign a long-standing transfer target in the January window.
