2022 World Cup schedule confirmed

Schedule for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is confirmed, with four group games a day and the Final on December 18.

That the tournament is being held in the winter is nothing new, given the excessively-hot summer climate in Qatar.

Now, FIFA has announced that there will be four games per group-stage matchday over a span of 12 days.

Qatar’s small size also means fans are able to travel to two matches in the same day, without the need to fly.

Other kick-off times for group games have been set for 16:00, 19:00 and 22:00, with local time UTC/GMT+3 or CET+2.

The World Cup Final will take place on Saturday 18 December at 18:00 local time (15:00 GMT/16:00 CET), at the 80,000-seater Lusail Stadium.

The draw for the 32-team competition is currently slated to take place ‘after the March 2022 international match calendar qualifying window’.
