The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be the 22nd FIFA World Cup. It will be hosted in Qatar from 20 November to 18 December 2022. It will be the first World Cup hosted in the Arab world,[1] and the second to be hosted fully in Asia.[a] This will be the last World Cup with 32 teams, the next World Cups are going to have 48 teams. The tournament will be played in November and December because Qatar is a very hot country.[2] This will be the first World Cup that isn't played in May, June or July. The previous champions are France.[3]

There have been suspicions on whether Qatar earned hosting rights fairly. An investigation that was done by FIFA reported that Qatar earned hosting rights fairly. This investigation was criticized by Michael J. Garcia.[4] Qatar was also criticized because of the treatment of the foreign workers preparing the World Cup stadiums.[5][6]

Qualification[change | change source]

FIFA's six continental confederations have their own qualifying tournaments. All 211 associations are able to enter qualification. Qatar, qualified automatically because they are the hosts. Qatar still plays in the first two rounds of AFC qualification because it is also qualification for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup.[7][8] The previous World Cup champions France will participate in qualification as normal.[9] Saint Lucia, North Korea, American Samoa, Samoa all withdrew because of safety reasons related to the COVID-19 pandemic, with North Korea withdrawing after already playing matches. Tonga withdrew because of the 2022 Hunga Tonga–Hunga Ha'apai eruption and tsunami. Russia was suspended by FIFA because of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine. Vanuatu and Cook Islands both withdrew because of COVID-19 cases in their squads, with Cook Islands withdrawing after already playing matches.

The amount of available World Cup slots for each confederation was discussed by the FIFA Executive Committee on 30 May 2015 in Zürich.[10] The committee decided that the slots would be the same as 2018.[11]

Final draw[change | change source]

The final draw was in the Doha Exhibition and Convention Center in Doha, Qatar,[23] on 1 April 2022,[24] 19:00 AST, before the qualifiers finished. The two winners of the inter-confederation play-offs and the winner of the Path A of the UEFA play-offs were not known at the time of the draw.[25]

For the draw, the 32 teams were put into four pots based on their FIFA World Rankings of 31 March 2022.[26] The teams in Pot 1 were the hosts, Qatar (who were automatically seeded as A1) and the best seven teams. The teams in Pot 2 were the next best eight teams, with the next best eight teams into Pot 3. The teams in Pot 4 were the five lowest-ranked teams, the two inter-confederation play-off winners and the UEFA Path A play-off winner. Teams from the same confederation could not be in the same group except UEFA, which allowed maximum two teams in the same group. The Pot 1 teams were automatically seeded as 1.[27] The pots for the draw are shown below.[28]

Branding[change | change source]

The official emblem was shown on 3 September 2019 at the Doha Tower, Katara Cultural Village Amphitheatre, Msheireb Downtown Doha, and Zubarah. It is designed to show the tournament trophy, the infinity symbol, and the number "8", which represents the eight host stadiums. It also represents shawls to highlight the tournament's winter scheduling, and has waves showing the desert dunes. The make-up of the emblem's wordmark describes kashida—extending certain parts of characters in Arabic script to give emphasis.[30][31][32]

Mascot[change | change source]

The tournament's official mascot was shown on 1 April 2022, during the group stage draw. Its name is La’eeb, which means "super-skilled player" in Arabic. The official website of FIFA says: "La’eeb will be known for his youthful spirit; spreading joy and confidence everywhere he goes", and the official backstory of the character, published there, says that it comes from a different world where tournament mascots live, "a world where ideas and creativity form the basis of characters that live in the minds of everyone".[33]

Match ball[change | change source]

The official match ball, the "Al Rihla", was shown on 30 March 2022. It was inspired by the culture, architecture, iconic boats and flag of Qatar. In Arabic, the word Al Rihla means “the journey”. The ball was designed with stability as the main focus. It is the first ever official match ball created with water-based glues and inks.

As "the game is getting faster" and "speeds up", Adidas used some new traits, like more speed and improved accuracy of the ball.[34]

Official song[change | change source]

The official song of the tournament is "Hayya Hayya (Better Together)", by Trinidad Cardona, Davido and AISHA, released on 1 April 2022 with the music video.[35]
