The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is just around the corner, and people are starting to get excited. This year’s tournament is going to be a little different than in years past, as it will be held in Qatar, a country in the Middle East. Here is everything you need to know about the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
The History of The FIFA World Cup
The FIFA World Cup is a prestigious international football tournament that is organized by FIFA, the international governing body for football. The World Cup is contested by the men’s national teams of the member associations of FIFA. The first World Cup was held in 1930 in Uruguay, and the current champion is France, who won the 2018 World Cup.
The World Cup has been won by ten different nations. Brazil is one of the most successful teams, with five titles. Germany is the current holder, having won the tournament in 2014.
The Stages of The Fifa World Cup
The FIFA World Cup is a tournament that is played by the best national men’s association football teams in the world. The competition has been held every four years since 1930, except in 1942 and 1946 because of World War II. The Cup is open to all member nations of FIFA.
The second stage is the knockout stage. The knockout stage is a single-elimination tournament. This means that a team is out of the tournament if it loses one game. The last team standing is the winner of the World Cup.
When Is World Cup 2022?
The World Cup in 2022 will be held in the dead of winter to avoid the sweltering heat typical of host nation Qatar in the summer months, which is one of the many controversies surrounding the forthcoming tournament.
With timings to be determined, it will formally begin on Sunday, November 20, with the Group A opening between Qatar and Ecuador.
Sunday, December 18 is set aside for the championship game, capping up a month of football enjoyment (and many, many pints in pubs). It is unknown who England will face, but we’d bet money on Germany in a rematch from the Women’s Euros.
Who Will Have the Coolest Kits for World Cup 2022?
We in the GQ office have always liked the England uniforms because we are true believers in minimalistic simplicity, even though we are blatantly biased. However, not everyone prefers a white strip (it can be dull or something), and there is something to be said about the flashy graphics displayed on a global scale.
Adidas is likely to come out with another spectacular all-black design after the stunning Germany away jersey from the previous season.

The FIFA World Cup is a global event that takes place every four years. The host country is determined by a vote of the FIFA Congress, which is made up of representatives from all of the member countries.
