What Time are the Kickoff in 2022 World Cup?
The 2022 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to be the 22nd edition of the FIFA World Cup, the quadrennial international men’s football championship contested by the national teams of the member associations of FIFA. It is scheduled to take place in Qatar in 2022. This will be the first World Cup ever to be held in Arab country.
The tournament is expected to be played across eight venues, with twelve stadiums currently being proposed. The final will be staged at Lusail Iconic Stadium, a 90,000-seat stadium currently under construction in Lusail City, north of Doha. The current plan is for the tournament to take place from 21 November to 18 December 2022.
However, due to concerns over the heat during Qatar’s summer months (May to September), it is possible that the event may need to take place during winter months instead (November/December). If this were to happen, it would likely cause significant disruption for many major leagues across Europe which typically take a winter break during this time period. So far, there has been no official word on when exactly kickoff times will be for the 2022 World Cup games.
However, based on previous tournaments and considering the time difference between Qatar and most major football markets around the world (Qatar is +3 GMT), it is safe to assume that games will mostly take place in late afternoon or early evening local time in Qatar (which would correspond to morning or early afternoon kickoffs in European time zones). So stay tuned for more updates on this as we get closer to 2022!
Who Qualified to Qatar 2022?
The FIFA World Cup is an international football tournament held every four years. It is the most prestigious event in the sport, and attracts top players from all over the world. The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar, making it the first time the event has been held in the Middle East.
A total of 32 teams will compete at the 2022 World Cup, with 8 groups of 4 teams each. The top 2 teams from each group will advance to the knockout stage, where they will compete for a place in the final. So far, only 31 of the 32 teams have been confirmed for Qatar 2022.
The final team will be decided by a playoff between Concacaf’s (North, Central America & Caribbean) 4th-placed team and Asia’s 5th-placed team. This playoff match is scheduled to take place in late 2021. The following teams have qualified for Qatar 2022:
Africa: Algeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Mauritania*, Morocco, Nigeria*, Senegal, South Africa*, Tunisia* (* denotes team has not yet qualified but is expected to do so) North America: Canada*, Mexico*, United States* (* denotes team has not yet qualified but is expected to do so)
Asia: Australia*, China PR*, India*, Iran*, Japan*, Jordan*, Kuwait*, Oman*, Saudi Arabia * , Syria * , Uzbekistan* , Vietnam * (* denotes team has not yet qualified but is expected to do so)
Will World Cup 2022 Happen in Qatar?
As of right now, it appears that the World Cup will in fact be held in Qatar as planned. This has been a controversial decision from the start, with many people believing that Qatar is not capable of hosting such a large event. However, the country has been working hard to prepare for the tournament, and they appear to be on track to have everything ready in time.
There are still some concerns about whether or not the stadium construction will be completed on time, but it seems likely that everything will come together and the World Cup will go off without a hitch.
Where Will the Qatar 2022 Final Be Played?
The Qatar 2022 Final will be played at the Lusail Iconic Stadium. The stadium is located in the city of Lusail, Qatar and has a capacity of 86,250. It is scheduled to host the opening and closing ceremonies as well as the final match of the FIFA World Cup in 2022.

Fifa World Cup 2022 Qualifiers Europe
The European section of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification process will involve all 55 UEFA member associations. The first round of qualifying matches will begin in March 2021 and will consist of two single-leg semi-finals, followed by a one-off final to be played in early 2022. The four teams that win their respective semi-finals will qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The format for the European qualifiers was decided by the UEFA Executive Committee on 17 December 2020. All 55 UEFA member nations will be split into ten groups of five or six teams, with the top two finishers in each group advancing to the second round of qualifying. In the second round, the 20 group winners will be drawn into five play-off groups of four teams each.
The play-offs will consist of two single-leg semi-finals, followed by a one-off final to be played in early 2022. The four teams that win their respective play-off groups will qualify for the FIFA World Cup. This is a change from previous World Cup qualifying campaigns, where Europe had 14 places available and qualification was determined by a series of two-legged knockout fixtures.
The new format has been designed to give more nations a chance to qualify for the World Cup, as well as providing more competitive matches between European sides leading up to the tournament itself. The first round of qualifiers will take place between March and November 2021, with the second round taking place between January and February 2022. The dates for the play-offs have not yet been confirmed but are likely to take place around March/April 2022.
So far, no team has officially qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup – this will only happen once all qualifiers have been played and all 32 spots at the tournament have been filled. However, hosts Qatar automatically qualify for next year’s showpiece event regardless of their results in qualifying (they are also exempt from playing in any qualifying rounds).
Next Fifa World Cup
The next FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar in 2022. This will be the first time that the World Cup will be held in the Middle East, and it is sure to be a historic event. Qatar was selected as the host nation back in 2010, and preparations are already underway to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
There have been some controversies surrounding the selection of Qatar as the host country, particularly with regards to human rights concerns. However, FIFA has stated that they are confident that these issues will be resolved before the World Cup begins. With just over three years to go until kickoff, excitement is building for what promises to be an unforgettable tournament.
The world’s best players will descend on Qatar, and fans from all over the globe will come together to celebrate their love of football. It’s sure to be an event like no other – so make sure you don’t miss out!
Fifa World Cup 2020
The FIFA World Cup is an international football tournament that takes place every four years. The 2020 edition will be the 27th edition of the event, and it is scheduled to take place in Qatar from 21 November to 18 December 2021. This will be the first time that the World Cup will be held in Qatar, and it will also mark the first time that it will be held entirely in Asia.
The format of the tournament has changed several times since its inception in 1930, but it currently consists of 32 teams divided into eight groups of four. The group stage is followed by a knockout stage featuring 16 teams, with the final taking place at Qatar’s newly built Lusail Iconic Stadium on 18 December 2021. Qatar was selected as the host country for the 2020 FIFA World Cup over bids from Japan, South Korea, Australia and United States on 4 December 2010.
This was despite concerns about human rights abuses in Qatar, as well as allegations of bribery and corruption surrounding the bid process. Nonetheless, FIFA president Sepp Blatter praised Qatar’s “unique” offer to host a summer World Cup for the first time in its history. As part of their bid commitments, Qatar has pledged to build nine new stadiums and upgrade three existing ones for use at the tournament.
They have also promised to create new training facilities and accommodation for players and officials, as well as improved transport links between all venues. With just over two years to go until kick-off, preparations for the 2020 FIFA World Cup are well underway in Qatar. Excitement is building ahead of what promises to be a truly historic event – not just for football but for sport as a whole.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup is scheduled to take place in Qatar from 21 November to 18 December. The final will be played at the 80,000-seat Lusail Iconic Stadium.
France and Denmark are set to face off in the opening game of the tournament, with the match taking place at 8pm local time on 21 November (7pm GMT).
Both teams have been drawn into Group B alongside Australia and Peru. France are currently ranked seventh in the world by FIFA, while Denmark sit just below them in 12th spot. In terms of team news, France will be without striker Kylian Mbappe for the game as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.
However, they should still have enough firepower to see off Denmark, who are missing key defender Simon Kjaer. As for a prediction, France are favourites to win but Denmark will be no pushovers – we’re backing Les Bleus to edge it 2-1.
