FIFA World Cup schedule 2022: Complete match dates, times, team fixtures for Qatar tournament

The World Cup 2022 calendar spans November and December, with the first match taking place on November 21 and the final on December 18, 2022.

A group stage is followed by the eighth-finals, quarter-finals, semi-finals, third-place play-off, and the final.

In the knockout stage, if the match ends in a draw, extra time is added to the game. The additional time is made up of two 15-minute segments that will begin after a 5-minute break. The remaining time is made up of a one-minute drinking break. The players do not leave the field. If the score is still tied after extra time, the winner will be decided by a penalty shoot-out.

Shortest schedule since 1978

With only 28 days, the World Cup in Qatar is the shortest in 44 years. Argentina hosted the 1978 World Championship over 25 days.

4 matches per day

There are four matches each day on the program. In the short and hectic schedule, this allows the players to get ample rest.

Flexible schedule

Only after the draw will the match timings and stadiums be determined.

This permits the organization to plan the match so that all football fans from the participating countries may see it live.

Group matches format

The group matches will take place in the order listed below. According to the league structure, each team competes against every other club from the same group. This implies that a win is worth three points, a tie is for one point, and a defeat is worth zero points.

Each group’s last two matches will be played at the same time on the same day. This makes it impossible to examine a competitor’s results.
