Buenos Aires (EFE) .- The Union of Kiosqueros of the Argentine Republic (UKRA) has asked the government to resolve the “chaos” generated by the lack of cards for the Qatar 2022 World Cup and by the damage that, according to the institution, entails that can be bought in supermarkets.

“We are 150,000 kiosks throughout the country that we expect, every four years, that strawberry on the cake. During the year we sell them the stickers (cards) that no one knows about. From UKRA we asked the Secretary of Commerce for a meeting and to convene the company to find a channel of dialogue before complaints and all those steps. They did and we appreciate it, “UKRA Vice President Adrián Palacios told El Destape Radio on Thursday.

The meeting took place this Wednesday and saw the participation of representatives from newsstands, the Panini company and the Secretariat of Commerce.

“During the meeting, the company said it had the paper and ink to print, which is not the problem. The theme is in the 60 distributors who sit on top of the figurines and decide who to deliver the figurines to.

Adrián Palacios, vice president of UKRA.

For Palacios, the “problem” is that “for the first time in thirty years” you can buy cards in supermarkets, petrol stations and virtual applications.

“They are three members of concentrated groups. This has generated chaos, not only shortages, but also economic chaos, the increase in the prices of stickers in parallel markets, “she said.

Chaos due to lack of cards

In Argentina it has become utopian to buy Qatar 2022 official sticker packs at newsstands and this has led to selling them on the Internet at a higher price than the stipulated price.

“Today the price gap is uncontrollable,” said Palacios, who said that during the meeting Ukraine offered the company to make available the food and drink distributors they usually work with to ensure that the cards reach the kiosks.

“We try to have our proposal registered in the Secretariat and await an answer”, he concluded.
