The tournament is featuring 32 participating teams, the last to do so as the field will increase to 48 teams for the 2026 tournament. Matches at the event will be played in eight venues across five cities. France is the defending champion, having defeated Croatia 4–2 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final. Due to Qatar’s intense summer heat, this World Cup is being held during November and December, being the first tournament not held in May, June, or July and to take place in the northern winter. It is being played in a reduced timeframe of 29 days. The opening match will be between Qatar and Ecuador at Al Bayt Stadium, Al Khor. The final will be held on 18 December 2022, Qatar’s National Day.
