The FIFA World Cup is an international soccer competition that is held every four years. The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be the 22nd edition of the event and is scheduled to take place in Qatar from November 21 to December 18, 2022. This will be the first time that the World Cup will be held in the Middle East and the first time in an Muslim-majority country.
The format of the tournament will be similar to that of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with 32 teams set to compete in a group stage, followed by a knockout stage. However, the 2022 FIFA World Cup will feature an expanded field of 48 teams, which will be divided into 16 groups of three.
The host nation, Qatar, will automatically qualify for the tournament, as will the defending champions, France. The remaining 46 teams will qualify through a series of continental tournaments and inter-confederation playoffs.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup is expected to be one of the most watched sporting events in history, with an estimated 4.6 billion people tuning in to watch at least some of the tournament.
