The Qatar 2022 FIFA Men's World Cup
The FIFA World Cup is a professional association football tournament held between national football teams
Organised by FIFA, the tournament, held every four years, was first played in 1930 in Uruguay, and has been contested by 32-teams since the 1998 event.
The tournament is contested with eight round-robin groups followed by a knockout round for 16 teams. The defending champions are the French national football team, who defeated Croatia 4–2 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final.
The event is scheduled to take place under a reduced length, from 20 November to 18 December in Qatar. Being held in Qatar, it is the first World Cup tournament to be held in the Arab world.
Unlike previous FIFA World Cups, which are typically played in June and July, the 2022 World Cup will be played in November and December to avoid the intense Qatari summer heat. As a result, the World Cup will be unusually staged in the middle of the seasons of domestic football leagues, which start in late July or August, including all of the major European leagues, which have been obliged to incorporate extended breaks into their domestic schedules to accommodate the World Cup. Major European competitions have scheduled their respective competitions group matches to be played before the World Cup, in order to avoid playing group matches the following year.
