2022 FIFA World Cup Broadcasting Rights: TV Coverage & Channel List

Qatar will host the FIFA World Cup 2022, the tournament’s 22nd edition and the primary championship for national soccer teams. Qatar will host it after it is completed in 2022. Regardless of the criticism, the fact that this event will be hosted for the first time in an Arab country is a significant milestone.

Qatar defeated Australia, the United States, Japan, and South Korea to win the bid to host the FIFA World Cup in 2022 in 2010.

When it comes to football, Qatar isn’t exactly a household brand in the sports world. They were unable to qualify for the 2018 World Cup despite their enormous population. In August 2021, they were ranked 42nd in the FIFA World Rankings. It had never received a higher ranking.

The first competition will be held in Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor City on November 21, 2022. The tournament will be held at eight stadiums around Qatar, including those in Doha, Al Rayyan, Al Khor, and Lusail City.

From these stadiums, the broadcasters will relay the visuals to the world.
