The first World Cup championship to be held in the Middle East will see Qatar host the 32-team tournament at Al Bait Stadium with a capacity of 60,000 on November 21.
The matches start during the group stages – which will run from November 21 to December 2 – at 1 pm, 4 pm, 7 pm and 10 pm (all local times).
With all eight stadiums within a 40-mile radius of each other, fans can attend more than one match every day.
“In order to provide all teams with the optimum comfort between their matches, the group stage will last 12 days and four games per day,” the FIFA said in a statement.
“The compact nature of the tournament – without the need for air travel to travel between places – will allow the organizers, for the first time, to improve the specific match requirements for the benefit and convenience of fans, teams and the media.”
The final will be played on December 18 at Lusail Stadium 80,000, which will host the Al-Bayt semi-final.
FIFA said it will wait until the final drawing of the tournament – “currently planned after the qualifying period for the international match schedule in March 2022” – before allocating specific games to places and time periods.
