About our 2022 World Cup news

Latest news on FIFA's 2022 World Cup, the 22nd edition of the world championship for men's international football, hosted by Qatar from 21 November to 18 December.

Since Qatar was announced as the host country for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, there have been many controversies and human rights issues surrounding the event. One of the biggest concerns is the working conditions for migrant workers in Qatar, who make up the majority of the country's population. Reports of workers being exploited, forced to work in dangerous conditions, and not being paid fairly are common. Another issue is the treatment of women in Qatar, who face discrimination and restrictions on their rights. There have also been concerns raised about the treatment of LGBTQI+ people in Qatar, as same-sex relations are currently illegal in the country.

The World Cup was first held in 1930 in Uruguay, with the hosts winning the first tournament. Normally held every four years, Brazil are the most successful nation in the competition's history. The 2022 edition in Qatar is the first World Cup held during the European domestic season. This will also be the first World Cup ever to be held in the Arab world and the first in a Muslim-majority country. The final will take place at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.

Almost every country in the world takes part in qualifying for the FIFA World Cup, with 32 nations qualifying for the final tournament. However, this number will increase to 48 for the 2026 World Cup held in the USA, Canada and Mexico.
