2022 FIFA World Cup Format

In keeping with recent editions, the FIFA 2022 World Cup will feature a 32-team group stage that reduces the field to 16 teams; only the top two teams from each of the eight groups advance. These 16 group-stage teams move on to the single-game knockout stages, which include the Round of 16, quarterfinals, semifinals, and final. In these matches, the victor advances, and the loser is eliminated. Every knockout round match must have a winner on the day, and if necessary, extra time and penalty kicks will be used to decide the winner.

When will the FIFA 2022 World Cup matches start in Qatar

The FIFA 2022 World Cup will kick off in Qatar on the 21st of November 2022. The first game will be hosted by Al Thumama stadium, in which the Netherlands will be up against Senegal followed by the first game of hosts against Ecuador. With their Group B match against Iran set for just eight days after the Premier League wraps up, England will also play on an opening day.

FIFA 2022 World Cup Venues

The 2022 FIFA World Cup would not only be the first to take place in the Arab, but it will also be the most condensed. The spectators would be able to see multiple matches each day. Each stadium, training facility, and fan zone has solar-powered cooling technology to maintain a constant 27C temperature during the humid summer months. All stadiums are going to be eco-friendly with controllable temperatures. Following stadiums will host the exciting games of the FIFA 2022 World Cup. 

  • Al-Rayyan Stadium

    Which is just outside of Doha in Al Rayyan, will be expanded to accommodate 40,000 spectators in time for the 2022 FIFA World Cup using modular components forming an upper tier. Through its "stunning undulating façade," the stadium reflects Qatari culture. After the competition, it will be reduced to almost 20,000 seats as the remaining ones will be donated to international football development initiatives.

  • Al Bayt Stadium

    This stadium, built by Aspire Zone Foundation, has room for up to 60,000 spectators. It is distinctive due to the large tent structure that covers the entire stadium and bears the name Bayt al Sha'ar, which refers to the traditional tents used by nomadic tribes in Qatar. The stadium's architecture honors Qatar's past while serving as an example of sustainable development.

  • Khalifa International Stadium

    Originally constructed in 1976, the revamped Khalifa International Stadium was renovated in 2005 to serve as the focal point of the 2006 Asian Games. The stadium features sweeping arcs and partially covered stands. The 3-2-1 Qatar Olympic and Sports Museum are connected to the stadium by a walkway, which adds to the understanding of how this location values its past while preparing for an exciting future. 

  • Lusail Stadium

    The new Lusail Stadium is one of the main stadiums for the World Cup in Qatar and will host the closing ceremony for the 2022 competition. It is situated in the Al Daayen neighborhood, which is a part of the developed Lusail City. Fans will be able to travel to games via improved roads, the Doha Metro, or the Lusail Light Rail Transit system. While there, they can spend time in various parks.

  • Al Thumama Stadium

    Due to its inspiration from the traditional qahfiya (the cap worn underneath the Ghutra and Egal) in the Arab world, Al Thumama Stadium is a distinctive example of Arab architectural iconography. Because it is a feature of Arab culture throughout the Arab world, this design was chosen. As a result, it conveys the richness of Arab civilization and the interconnected cultural and historical legacy of the Arab nations.
