FIFA World Cup 2022 Schedule

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is around the corner, and every participating country is prepared for it. The group stage matchups have also been established, and we are likely to begin speculating who might be in the top position for the knockouts.

The tournament will begin on Sunday, November 20, with an inaugural match between Ecuador and Qatar. It will round off within a month and the finals will be played on Sunday, December 18.

Brazil, a five-clenching title nation, will enter the tournament as one of the most successful countries in World Cup history. They also have a well-responded group to navigate while protecting champs France is likely to top the list in their group and have an opportunity to enter the knockout rounds.

African champions Senegal is one of the strongest yet most dazed teams in Group A. Canada is making its first appearance in 37 years, and it is in Group F, where it could face Croatia and Morocco loom second place after Belgium.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Tickets Buy

The 2022 FIFA World Cup schedule has been updated and will be organised in Qatar. It also issued an audience-entry card ‘Hayya’, also called Fan ID. If anyone seeks to cheer up any FIFA World Cup match in the stadium, they will have to carry the Hayya Card along with match tickets. It is basically an official document allotted by the Qatar government and it will be valid for all matches.

The Qatar government has also said that people who have a Fan ID can apply for a special visa with which they can stay in Qatar for almost 2 months. The deadline will begin 10 days before the football World Cup.

Football World Cup 2022 Tournament Format

The World Cup will proceed in accordance with the recent editions, with a 32-team group stage narrowing the field down to 16 group-stage teams – only two teams will remain from each of the eight groups.

The selected 16 teams will be moved to the single-game knockout stages. After the group stage, the round of 6, quarterfinals, semifinals, and final—where the victors move ahead and the dud gets dismissed.

There must be a front-runner on that day for each knockout-round match, and added time and penalty boosts will be used, if required, to identify the winner.

Dec. 3-6: Round of 16
Dec. 9-10: Quarterfinals
