FIFA World Cup 2022

The full schedule for the FIFA World Cup has been released and it includes some interesting changes from the 2018 tournament.

The most significant change is that the 2022 World Cup will be played in November and December instead of June and July. This is due to the climate in Qatar, which is too hot to play in during the summer months.

The tournament will still be 32 teams, but there will be an additional round of 16 teams. This means that a total of 64 games will be played, instead of the current format of 60 games.

The group stage will still have eight groups of four teams, but the top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout stage instead of the current format of the top two teams and the two best third-place teams.

This means that there will be more competitive games in the later stages of the tournament. The final will still be played on Sunday, December 18th.

What do you think of these changes? Do you think they will make for a more exciting tournament?
