Whether you are a fan of the game or simply want to know what will be happening when the next World Cup is held, it is important to understand the rules of the event. The World Cup is the world’s most popular sporting event and is always a thrilling experience to watch.
Originally the 2022 World Cup was scheduled to start the day after the last match of the European season, but this has been changed. The tournament will now begin on November 20. This will make the event the first winter World Cup held in the Northern Hemisphere.
The competition will be played in eight groups of four teams. Each group will play against one another in a round robin format. The winner of each group will advance to the knockout stage. All teams will play each other once. The loser will not receive any points. However, the winner of each match will receive 3 points, which will help them qualify for the next round.
The host country for the 2022 World Cup is Qatar. The country has a population of about 2.8 million people, but most live in the metropolitan area of Doha. It is about the size of Yorkshire. The country has also won hosting rights for the 2026 World Cup. The 2022 World Cup will be held in a stadium with a capacity of 80,000.
Teams will include most of the biggest teams from South America and Europe. Teams from the United States, Mexico, and Canada will also compete.
The final two places were won in an intercontinental playoff. The winner of this competition will earn a spot in the World Cup, along with the winner of the UEFA Champions League. The final will be held in December. The winner will receive a World Cup trophy.
Several international players will be leaving their clubs during this busy period. They will return with little to no rest. This could negatively affect the quality of the tournament, as they will have less time to prepare.
The 2022 World Cup will be broadcast on a variety of channels. FOX Sports, SlingTV, and Peacock will all be broadcasting the tournament in English. Other channels include Telemundo and Vidgo.
All of the World Cup venues will be within about a 40-mile radius of each other. Six of the eight stadiums weren’t there when Qatar won the hosting rights.
The final 26-man squad for the tournament will be announced before the competition begins. The finals will be played at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Doha, a week before Christmas. Several stars will perform during the tournament, including Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams, and J Balvin.
The 2022 World Cup will be played over 28 days. The tournament will be compressed into four weeks to accommodate players, media, and fans. The group stage will be held from November 20 through December 2. The knockout rounds will be held from December 3 through December 18. The winner of each round will advance to the finals.
