What exactly is the FIFA World Cup? The FIFA World Cup, also known as the World Cup or just the Cup, is an international football competition held every four years since 1930 (except in 1942 and 1946 due to World War II). It takes place in one of the member countries of FIFA—the sport’s world governing body—and features 32 teams competing for world domination with two countries eventually facing each other in the final match, which takes place on July 15th every fourth year. The next such event will be held in Russia in 2018, after Brazil hosted it last year and Germany before that in 2006.

What is FIFA?

FIFA, the International Federation of Association Football, is the governing body for soccer or what Americans call football. The FIFA World Cup is the biggest event that FIFA organizes.

How did Qatar become the host country for the 2022 World Cup?

Qatar first bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup on December 15, 2010. In 2011, they were one of two countries bidding for the tournament; they faced competition from the United States, Australia and South Korea. The voting was conducted at the FIFA Congress on May 25, 2011, with Russia being awarded the right to host in 2018 and Qatar being awarded with 2022.

Who will be playing in the 2022 World Cup?

A total of 24 teams will be playing in the FIFA World Cup 2022 tournament. The host nation, Qatar, gets automatic entry into the tournament and their spot was confirmed on December 2010. They have been allotted with four other spots as well, which is almost a third of the total amount of spots available (this means they will be competing against one another). The qualifying process for this tournament has also been altered and includes an inter-confederation play-off which will provide an opportunity for five additional nations to qualify for the event.

What changes have been made to the 2022 World Cup format?

In the wake of the FIFA scandal, many have called for a change in format for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. In response, FIFA has announced that it will reduce the number of teams that participate at the tournament from 32 to 24. Furthermore, it will now be held over a period of 28 days instead of 31. The reasoning behind this is because after being on-site for six weeks, players and fans alike need time to recuperate before heading back home. This change should make for a more compact tournament with more competitive matches as well as provide better conditions for players and fans alike.

What stadiums will be used for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar?
