0

As the 2018 World Cup drew to a close, FIFA announced that the next World Cup, in Qatar, will be held from November 21 to December 18, 2022.

The official dates were announced at a handover ceremony with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Emir of Qatar Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and FIFA President Gianni Infantino.

Infantino said, “Football (soccer) is all about passion, emotions, love, family and unity – we have experienced this fully in Russia and now we’re handing it over to Qatar. I am sure that in four years we will see the same energy, the same positive influence in Qatar as we have seen in Russia.

“I can certainly say we have fallen in love with Russia. And I’m sure that in four years we will all love Qatar. This is already happening. We invite everyone to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar!”
