FIFA World Cup

Official: 2022 FIFA World Cup will start on this date, venue and time

The FIFA World Cup is undoubtedly the biggest football tournament in the World. National teams from around the world come together to battle out for one title which is the trophy. The FIFA World Cup is played every four years. It officially started in 1930 and Uruguay is the first team to win the trophy. 

The next World cup will be played in 2022. The opening match, featuring the hosts Qatar, will be played on 21st November 2022. It will be played at 13:00 local time (UTC+3), at the Al Bayt Stadium. 


Due to Qatar's intense summer heat, this World Cup will be held from late-November to mid-December, making it the first tournament not to be held in May, June, or July.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be played in only eight stadia. These stadia can be located in only 5 cities in Qatar. The match will also feature 32 teams from across all continents.

The finals of the World Cup will be played on 18th December, 2022.
