qatar World Cup
NOVEMBER 21 - DECEMBER 18
There is no bigger sporting event around the globe than the World Cup. The 2014 World Cup attracted over 5 million people to the official Fan Fests in Brazil, and the tournament final attracted more than 1 billion television viewers; making it the most-watched event in history. In 2018, over 3 million people watched t he games live in stadiums across Russia. Taking place every four years, part of the World Cup's appeal is due to the wait soccer/football fans endure to see the best players in the world take the pitch. The 2022 World Cup will be played in Qatar. For the first time ever, the tournament will take place in a Middle Eastern country and in a new season as it moves from its typical summer schedule to winter, beginning November 21, 2022 and ending December 18. The tournament is an adventure for football fans, and with 8 stadiums and the first ever Middle-Eastern hosts, the 2022 World Cup will be an event like no other.

The 2022 World Cup will be played across 8 proposed stadiums in Qatar. 5 cities across the country will host these stadiums.
The plan for building these stadiums is to implement technology that will reduce heat inside the stadiums and the upper tiers of the stadiums will be donated to countries with less developed sports infrastructure after the World Cup. The country is also attempting to build these stadiums by the most environmentally-friendly means possible. So far, 5 of the proposed 8 stadium projects have been launched.
Thirty-two teams will kick-off the World Cup group stages and only one team will be left standing on December 18. The process for qualification has not yet been announced, but all football member associations are eligible to enter qualification. As hosts, Qatar's team is automatically qualified should they choose to accept. For the first time since the initial two tournaments, the World Cup will be hosted by a country whose national team has never played in the finals before. However, only two teams from each group can advance to the knockout round, and some of the world's biggest teams will be flying home after just three games in Qatar. Of course, no match at the World Cup is ever easy, and good teams could find themselves packing their bags after a poor run of form and underdogs could come out on top.
WOLRD CUP HISTORY:
The first World Cup took place in 1930, and it saw Uruguay win the first of its two Jules Rimet Trophies. However, it is Uruguay's great rival, Brazil, that has won the most World Cup tournaments. The Brazilians have won the tournament five times, most recently winning it at South Korea-Japan 2002.
Two-time champions, France come into the 2022 World Cup holding the Jules Rimet Trophy. France defeated Croatia in a harrowing and exciting final match. France is currently considered one of the best teams in the world, but the team will be tested from the start in Qatar.
Only eight teams have ever won the World Cup. Brazil, Germany, Uruguay, Argentina, Italy, Spain, England and France (the current World Cup Champions) are the only nations to ever lift the most prestigious trophy in world football. The 2022 tournament could see a new nation etch its name in history. Any team could rise to the occasion. However, the past winners have the experience, knowledge and skill to finish the 2022 World Cup on the winners' podium.
Qatar will be the first Middle Eastern country to host the World Cup. Despite facing many obstacles, the country is working diligently to prove that they are the rightful host of the world’s most-viewed sporting event: the 2022 World Cup.
