Why will the 2022 World Cup be held in winter?

The reason for holding the World Cup in winter in 2022 is Qatar’s unique climate. The country is located in the eastern part of the Arabian Peninsula and has a tropical desert climate. In summer, there is a high temperature approaching 50 degrees Celsius, and the weather is extremely hot. Such temperatures make it difficult to play outdoor football. Definitely no chance!

 It is only 24 to 30 degrees in Qatar in winter, which is very suitable for outdoor activities. For this reason, the Qatar World Cup will be held during winter.

World Cup 2022 marks the 22nd edition of the tournament. Qatar is the first Middle Eastern country to host the event in history. In addition, this will be the second World Cup to be held in Asia after the 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan. From November 21 to December 18, 2022, the Qatar World Cup will take place in 12 stadiums in seven cities throughout Qatar, with the original 32-day schedule shortened to 28 days.

Looking forward to witnessing this historic event!
