When is the 2022 FIFA

Argentina and France will compete for the FIFA World Cup trophy in Qatar, which will be one of the most watched sporting events in the world.

This year’s final will be held in the weeks leading up to the December holiday season, which will be an unusual timing choice. In fact, it coincides with a national holiday in Qatar, which will draw more attention to the contest.

To avoid the sweltering summer heat and its effects on the players’ health, this tournament was moved to November and December, which is winter in Qatar.

When is the 2022 World Cup final?

The 2022 World Cup final will take place on December 18th, a Sunday. The World Cup final is customarily staged on a Sunday in the host country.

The last 13 World Cup finals, with the exception of two, have all taken place on Sundays. The inaugural World Cup final in 1930, which was played on a Wednesday, and the 1966 World Cup final, which was held on a Saturday, were the only two that weren’t on a Sunday.

The day is called Al-Yawm al-Watani li-Qaar, or “Founder’s Day,” which is commemorated on the same day every year in Qatar.

The holiday, which was instituted in 2007, was created to honor Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani’s accession to power on December 18, 1878. He is recognized with driving off foreign invaders like the Ottomans, the British, and other tribes from the Arabian Peninsula while bringing the Qatari tribes together.

Despite the fact that Qatar would not become independent from the British Empire until 1971, the holiday does serve to commemorate the country’s freedom from foreign domination.

Where is World Cup final 2022?

The World Cup championship game will take place in Qatar’s Lusail Stadium. The stadium is situated about 23 km (14,3 miles) north of Doha.

The stadium’s construction, which was done especially for the 2022 World Cup, started in 2017 and ended in April of 2021.

After the World Cup, Lusail Stadium’s 80,000-person capacity will be reduced to 40,000, with the extra space being used for shops, cafes, athletic facilities, and other amenities. This will address a problem with the now-irreparable stadiums from the 2014 World Cup in Brazil by building a stadium that will be functional after the 2022 World Cup.

According to the Qatari World Cup organizers, Lusail Stadium is exceptional in that it has a carbon-neutral footprint. According to the architectural firm Fosters + Partners, this is due to energy-efficient features like solar panels for power and environmentally friendly cooling technologies.

According to a Reuters report from this past May, some academics have disputed these assertions, claiming that shady calculations were used to accurately predict a carbon-neutral footprint.

Who will win the World Cup 2022?

The oddsmakers have France as their favorite to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup after they overcame numerous injuries to successfully defend their title.

The stars of Les Bleus’ season thus far have included the prolific Kylian Mbappe and the attacking mastermind Antoine Griezmann.

To demonstrate their dominance, Argentina, led by seven-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi, destroyed Croatia.
