The disruption has caused large queues
Supporters not currently logged in are unable to do so, with many posting their concerns to social media – one writing: “(They) Won’t accept email confirmation and no one is willing to help.”
A common issue is appearing within the app’s “My Events” page – which should be where e-tickets appear.
Some worried fans have received the message: “There is no ticket associated with your email address.”
The Khalifa International Stadium does possess a help centre to support fans with logistical issues.

But widespread problems could lead to lengthy delays and many loyal supporters missing kick-off.
One fan explained to SunSport that supporters are facing a nervous wait for their tickets to activate on their phones via Bluetooth.
They said: “You are told to approach stadium and your ticket will activate via Bluetooth.
“Everyone nervous because Bluetooth activation quicker for some than others.

“Band on ticket goes from yellow to blue – eventually…”
Hundreds of England fans have been held up outside the ticketing centre by police, getting increasingly annoyed in the process.
The issue is believed to be that once inside, they cannot access their tickets – leading to the queue barely moving.
Some supporters were left even more irate when told to move to another entrance.
Prior to even arriving at the stadium, fans have had to wait for buses to shuttle them there.
The nearest metro station is two miles from the ground, with fans facing an awkward trip.
According to The Times’ Henry Winter, even fans with functioning tickets are facing tight security getting into the stadium.
He reports that fans are having their bags, flags and even masks searched – also being asked to take rings off as they go through scanners.
