Match schedule confirmed for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022

The full match schedule for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 has been confirmed, with four games a day taking place throughout the group stages.

The first match will take place at Al Bayt Stadium, a 60,000-seater arena that takes its name from the traditional tents used by the nomadic people of the region.

Qatar will kick off the tournament at Al Bayt on Monday November 21, 2022 at 1pm local time, with all group matches taking place at 1pm, 4pm, 7pm and 10pm.

The last round of games in the group stage will take place simultaneously at 6pm and 10pm.

The third place playoff will take place at Khalifa International Stadium will be on December 17. The final will kick off a day later at 6pm at the 80,000 capacity Lusail Stadium.

The group stage will last 12 days and because all venues are reachable by road or rail fans, players, organisers and media should be able to move between all the stadiums easily, with the possibility of taking in more than one game per day.
