Millions more supporters are expected to tune in back home as England open their group B campaign against Iran on Monday afternoon before Wales makes their first appearance at the World Cup finals since 1958 against the US.
Both teams will be hoping to get off to a winning start and pick up points in their second games later in the week before facing each other next week for their final group-stage fixture.
Roughly 2,400 Three Lions fans applied for tickets for the Iran game via the England Supporters' Travel Club and Wales expects more than 2,500 of their supporters to have made the trip.
England and Wales go head-to-head at Al Rayyan Stadium on November 29.
Wales First Minister Mark Drakeford told reporters in Doha that the country should "dare to dream" and that he was optimistic about the national team's chances of getting out of the group stages.
"The beauty of sport is that on the day, any team can win any game," he added. ITV I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here returns to air on Monday night at the delayed start time of 9.15pm on ITV 1 and also on the ITV Hub.
