Dates of the FIFA 2022 World Cup
The FIFA 2022 World Cup is scheduled to take place from November 20 to December 18, 2022. The host country, Qatar, was announced on December 2, 2010. This will be the first time that the World Cup will be held in the Middle East. North Korea and Japan were also bidding for the right to host the tournament, but withdrew their bids due to concerns over human rights abuses in both countries.
Qatar is located on the Arabian Peninsula and it has a population of over 1.7 million people. The stadiums that will be used for the World Cup are: Lusail Stadium (built for the 2006 World Cup and used previously for international events such as the Arab Club Championships), Khalifa International Stadium (used previously for international matches and hosted the opening ceremony of the 2014 FIFA World Cup), Aspire Zone (a new stadium being built specifically for this event) and Al-Wakrah Stadium (the home ground of Qatari club Al-Arabi).
The official mascot of this year’s FIFA World Cup is “Arafat” which means “the lion” in Arabic.
