How To Watch FIFA World Cup 2022: Schedule, dates, timings

For all the controversies leading up to this World Cup, and there have been many, Saturday night in Doha was a night for the fans.

Around 40,000 gathered in the city’s main fan zone to welcome a tournament, the like of which we’ve never seen before.

The first football World Cup in a Muslim country, the first in the Middle East, and the first to be held in a European winter.

The crowd, although mostly Qatari, was international in color – Mexicans, Argentinians, Brazilians, Palestinians, Tunisians, Ecuadorians, and the occasional English shirt.

The beer stalls, hidden in a back corner, are one of the few public places fans can now buy and drink alcohol – there was a rush for the front when they opened.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino, whose news conference earlier in the day was a lengthy and ill-judged rant against the media, led the crowd in a countdown to the official opening.

Marcel Desailly, Roberto Carlos, and Marco Materazzi joined other FIFA legends on stage.

FIFA World Cup 2022 will take place between November 20 to December 18.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup will kick off today in Qatar after months of anticipation. The football tournament will open with hosts Qatar facing off against Ecuador. All in all, 32 teams will battle it out for the trophy over nearly one month. The FIFA World Cup 2022 will run between November 20 to December 18 in Qatar, where 8 world-class stadiums have been constructed or thoroughly renovated to host the international football championship.

The opening match between Qatar and Ecuador will take place at the Al Bayt Stadium at 9.30 PM IST. Ahead of the opening match on Sunday, a glitzy fireworks ceremony stunned fans on the waterfront in Doha on Saturday night.

Why you should back to England
The Three Lions have a world-class scorer in Harry Kane. The 29-year-old striker for Tottenham is the second-highest-scoring player in England’s history with 51 goals, just two behind Wayne Rooney. Kane also was the top scorer at the last World Cup after finding the back of the net six times.

In addition, the defense played well during World Cup qualifying. In 10 matches, the Three Lions conceded just three times while scoring 39 goals. They won eight times and drew twice and topped Group I with 26 points.

Why you should back Iran
The Iranians have a solid striker in Mehdi Taremi. The 30-year-old, who plays for Porto, has scored 13 goals in 18 games across all competitions at the club level, including five in five Champions League matches. During World Cup qualifying, he had seven goals and five assists in 13 appearances.

In addition, Iran faces an England side that has struggled recently. In six UEFA Nations League matches over the summer, the Three Lions lost three times and drew three more. Two of those losses came to Hungary, ranked No. 36 in the world.

England’s opening match of the World Cup is set to become the first game in World Cup history to be played with special air-conditioning technology.

Fifa is preparing to take a match-by-match approach to their use of the cooling innovation inside Qatar’s eight tournament stadiums and they intend only to use the air-conditioning to ensure that games are not played at temperatures above 24C.

The Qatari air-conditioning systems can lower temperatures even during the searing summer months from well above 40C to below 20C but tournament organizers want to make the conditions as natural as possible.

Average yearly temperatures in Qatar during November and December are between 25C and 15C but day-time temperatures of up to 30C are forecast over the first week of the tournament.

In practice, this means that matches kicking off locally at 1 pm and 4 pm are most likely to use the air-conditioning for some or all of their matches, with organizers likely to turn off the air-conditioning around an hour before the evening matches.

Temperature readings and measurements will be constantly monitored at the relevant stadium on a matchday.

The World Cup curtain-raiser between Qatar and Ecuador kicks off at 7 pm locally whereas England’s game against Iran begins at 4 pm on Monday in Doha (and 1 pm in the UK) when the local temperature is forecast at 27C.

Cooling water breaks will also be recommended – subject to the match referee’s final decision – around both the 30th and 75th minute of matches if what is known as the ‘west bulb globe temperature is above 32C.

This is a measure of the heat stress in direct sunlight, which takes into account temperature, humidity, wind speed, sun angle, and cloud cover.

The technology works by creating a bubble of pressure and therefore a micro-climate inside the stadium that both cools and purifies the air. gig
