FIFA World Cup 2022
The FIFA World Cup 2022 will be the 22nd edition of the quadrennial international men’s football tournament contested by the national teams of FIFA member countries. It is set to take place in late 2022 in Qatar. This will be the first World Cup staged in the Arab world and the first in a country with a Muslim majority.
Qatar will host the event, making it the first World Cup to be staged in the Middle East and the first in an Arab country. After the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan, this will be the second World Cup hosted exclusively in Asia. The event will include 32 national teams, including the host nation, compared to the standard 31. Qatar will also host the FIFA World Cup in 2025.
FIFA confirmed in May 2015 that the World Cup will be extended to 48 teams, with the 2026 event taking place in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. It was reported in January 2017 that the UAE, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt were mulling a combined proposal to host the event. The World Cup will be held in Qatar from November 21 to December 18, 2022. This will be the first World Cup staged in the Arab world and the first in a country with a Muslim majority. The event will take place between November 21 and December 18, 2022. In Qatar, 64 matches will be contested over eight stadiums.
The decision to grant Qatar the World Cup was contentious, and there were corruption charges in the bidding process. FIFA, on the other hand, has stood by its decision, and Qatar has been working hard to prepare for the event.
In Qatar, stadiums are being built or rebuilt expressly for the World Cup. They will be cutting-edge facilities that will serve as a showcase for Qatar and the Middle East. In addition, Qatar is attempting to improve its infrastructure in preparation for the World Cup. This comprises a new airport, subway system, and port.
Qatar will have a fantastic opportunity to show the world what it has to offer during the World Cup. It is an opportunity to demonstrate that the country is more than just a source of oil and gas. Qatar is a country with a rich culture and history, and it is ready to host the world’s largest athletic event.
