Having won the bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Qatar will become the first Arab nation to host a men’s football championship. Previously, only Asia and South America had hosted a men’s World Cup. Qatar’s FIFA bid was awarded in 2010 after an intense bidding war. In 2011, FIFA President Gianni Infantino said that Qatar’s labor reforms had led to “great evolution.” In addition, Qatar’s non-discrimination minimum wage was noted by the International Labor Organization.
The World Cup will be held in eight stadiums, including Al Bayt Stadium, which can accommodate more than 60,000 fans. The stadium is also known as the Lusail Iconic Stadium. The tournament will be held from November and December 2022. The final will take place on December 18, 6:00 PM local time.
Qatar’s 2022 World Cup schedule is packed with group and knockout matches. The group stage will begin on November 20 and will last until December 2 for each team. The top two teams from each group advance to the knockout stage. There are eight groupings of four teams. Each group will play two games against the other team in the group. In addition, each group will play a play-off game on 17 December for third place. The play-off will determine the last three teams to advance to the knockout stage. The final will take place on December 18.
The group stage will be followed by the knockout phase. In the knockout phase, each group will play the top two teams in the group. The final will take place on December 18. The first match will take place on November 20 and will take place at 15:30 local time. Qatar will play Ecuador in the opening match of the tournament on November 21.
Australia, a member of the Asian confederation, will qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The country beat the United Arab Emirates 2-1 in the Asian confederation playoff. It will play in its fifth consecutive World Cup. The country eliminated Germany in Kazan in 2014. It will also face the question of its supporting cast for Son Heung-min.
Australia is also well-prepared to play in the World Cup, having qualified relatively unscathed from qualifying. The team has a strong core of players, including Joao Cancelo, one of the best fullbacks in the world. In addition, Bruno Fernandes adds guile to the midfield.
The final qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be Asia versus South America. Four teams from each of the two regions will qualify for the final. The fourth team will be decided through the intercontinental playoff. The winner of the intercontinental playoff will fill the remaining spots. This will be a very cutthroat competition.
The host nation will receive an automatic berth into the tournament. The other 31 teams will have to earn their spots by winning the qualification process of their respective continental governing body. The World Cup will be held in eight stadiums in Qatar, including Al Bayt Stadium, which can hold more than 60,000 fans.
