Interesting Facts about the 2022 World Cup Schedule

The 2022 World Cup is scheduled to take place November 21 to December 18 and is unique for a few reasons:

  • At just 28 days long, the 2022 World Cup will be the shortest tournament since the 1978 edition.
  • The 2022 World Cup will be the last World Cup tournament to feature 32 teams; in 2026, the number will jump to 48 teams.
  • Though the World Cup typically takes place in June and July, with Qatar being the 2022 host nation, the 2022 World Cup will play out in Qatar’s winter months to avoid the country’s high summer temperatures.
  • This will mark the first time the World Cup is played in the Middle East.
  • All of the host stadiums are within a 35-mile radius from Doha, making it incredibly convenient for fans to attend multiple matches.

When will the 2022 World Cup schedule be finalized?

National teams will continue to play qualifiers until spring of 2022. Once all the qualifying teams have been determined, the World Cup draw will take place (expected date: April 2022) to decide the eight groups of four teams who will play each other in the group stage. The top two teams from each group will continue on to the knockout stage, culminating with the World Cup Final at Lusail Stadium on December 18th. The match times will be finalized after the draw to optimize the schedule for fans, players, and the media.

How many matches will there be in the 2022 World Cup?

A total of 64 matches will be played over the 28-day World Cup period. There are 48 matches in the group stage and 16 matches in the knockout round.

Where will the 2022 World Cup matches take place?

Qatar’s World Cup will play out in eight stadiums in and around Doha. The 2022 World Cup Venues are:

  • Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor
  • Al Rayyan Stadium in Al Rayyan
  • Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah
