The 2022 FIFA World Cup was scheduled to start on November 20 and end on December 18, 2022.

Why Does World Cup 2022 Delay

The decision, which will be made by a committee made up of Gianni Infantino, the president of FIFA, and the executives of the six continental soccer organizations, is anticipated to be made in the coming days, according to the article.


Officials from Qatar and the South American soccer governing body CONMEBOL have agreed to allow Qatar to face Ecuador on November 20.

On November 21, 2022, the Netherlands and Senegal were scheduled to play, with Qatar and Ecuador to follow six hours later.

Why is the World Cup in November?

In a New York Times article, the federation was quoted as saying, "The FIFA administration has assessed the commercial and legal implications of the proposal — including the impact on contractual commitments across media rights, sponsorship, and ticketing and hospitality — as well as the impact on travelling fans, and has determined that any risk is sufficiently outweighed by the value and benefits of the proposals."

The first time in the 92-year history of the competition that it will be held outside of the usual northern hemisphere summer makes the Qatar World Cup special. The 22nd FIFA World Cup will mark the first time an Arab nation has hosted the event.

The impact of the plan, should FIFA accept it, will be felt by Ecuadorian players and spectators alike. Players fighting against Qatar in the opening game will have one fewer day to travel and prepare, while international ticket holders will need to make changes to their travel and lodging arrangements.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Will Begin Between Qatar And Ecuador.

The first match of the FIFA World Cup 2022, which pits host nation Qatar against Ecuador, will take place on November 20.

The tournament's opening ceremony and game will be broadcast live for FIFA fans at 7 o'clock at Al Bayt Stadium.

The FIFA World Cup will begin in Qatar on November 20 following a decision made by the FIFA Council Bureau on Thursday. It was initially supposed to start on November 21.

The schedule was changed so that the host nation could play the opening match of the competition, as has been the tradition in previous tournament iterations.

The modification guarantees the continuation of a long-standing custom that sees an opening ceremony mark the beginning of the FIFA World Cup on the occasion of the first game involving either the hosts or the reigning champions.

The match between Senegal and the Netherlands has been moved from 1 pm to 7 pm on November 21 as a result.

Following an evaluation of the competition and its operational ramifications, extensive engagement with key stakeholders, and agreement with the host nation, the decision was made.

Beginning on November 14, 2022, the release period will continue to be controlled by the Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players, as previously established and decided.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Tickets

Tickets will remain valid regardless of the new date/time, and ticket holders will receive proper notification via email that the relevant matches have been rescheduled.

FIFA will also work to rectify any problems brought on by this modification on a case-by-case basis.

Both the competition rules and the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 match schedule have been updated.
