FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 - Qualification

Posted on 13 September 2021 by "K".

Held every four years, the FIFA World Cup sees 32 nations compete against each other for the ultimate prize. With continental qualification pathways leading to an exhilarating finals event, it brings football fans together all over the world to share the passion and love for the game.

In December 2010, Qatar won the right to host the FIFA World Cup 2022 and became the first Middle Eastern country to do so.

The FIFA World Cup qualification is the qualifying process which will determine 31 out of the 32 teams that will play in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Being the host, team Qatar has received an automatic spot.

FIFA's six continental confederations organize their very own qualifying matches.

All FIFA member associations (currently there are 211) are allowed to enter qualification.

Qatar, as hosts of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, has qualified automatically for the tournament. However, the AFC obliged Qatar to join in the Asian qualifying stage as the first two rounds also act as qualification for the 2023 AFC Asian Cup. If the Qatar team gets to the final stage as winners in their group or as one of the four best runners-up, the 5th best team will advance instead.

The reigning World Cup champions France will also go through the qualifying stages.

Initially, Saint Lucia entered qualification but withdrew from it prior to their first match. The same goes for North Korea, who also withdrew from the qualifying round because of safety concerns related to the pandemic.

The allotment of slots for each confederation was deliberated by the FIFA Executive Committee on May 2015 in Zurich after the FIFA Congress. The committee decided that the same allocation used in 2006, 2010 and 2014 would be retained for the 2018 and 2022 tournaments.









4.5 (not including host nation)





North and Central America and Caribbean






South America






The first qualifying matches were held in June 6, 2019 in the Asian qualifying tournament, with Mongolia beating Brunei 2-0 on June 6 - the time when Mongolian player Normoogiin Tsedenbal scored the very first goal of qualifying.

Due to concerns about the intense summer heat in Qatar, leading football clubs in Europe voiced out that they wanted the 2022 World Cup to take place from April 28 to May 29 rather than the usual June and July schedule.

Eventually, the 2022 World Cup has been scheduled from November 21 to December 18, 2022. This makes it the first tournament not to be held in May, June or July, and it is to be played in a reduced timeframe of about 28 days.

Who do you think will win the 2022 World Cup?
Will it be Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, England, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain or the United States? or any other country team you have in mind?

in Qatar the temperatures are extreme, but it will be great to enjoy this tournament that paralyzes the whole world, and at the same time unites us as nations, to know other customs that make everything beautiful, hopefully everything goes well and there are no problems.
 CALICUL15/09/2021 18:15:42 GMT
I think it will be played in the evening when it is better from a thermal point of view
 geseco1219/09/2021 00:04:43 GMT
I think everything will be well thought out so that the sport looks good and the players are safe, this world cup has to be more exciting than the last one, I think we will see many interesting things, I already want the world cup to come...
 CALICUL19/09/2021 00:22:13 GMT
i would also like to come and i would like some victories for my country, maybe he is lucky to qualify even is very hard because doesn't have a strong football
 geseco1220/09/2021 00:46:48 GMT
that's right friend calicul, we all want to see our national team in a world cup, we went to russia 2018, but we had to wait 32 years to get there, this time for Qatar I see it difficult to get there, but we will have to give everything not to be left out, faith is the last thing to be lost friend, good luck with your selection.
 CALICUL20/09/2021 01:06:32 GMT
let's hope that in the future we will have a strong football. Good luck Smile

Well, Peru has it quite difficult to access, because it has few points. But, while there is a possibility, they should continue fighting for that place. You have a very good team, and a very good coaching staff. You have to go to get both home and visitor points.
 dule-vu20/09/2021 05:54:49 GMT
Yeah,for lot of teams will be hard to qualify for world cup!
 Administrator20/09/2021 06:46:19 GMT
And to think that somebody wants World Cup to be held every 2nd year instead of 4th year... Disagree Not a good idea, in my opinion.
 dule-vu20/09/2021 07:45:59 GMT
Dont understand why they want to ruin everything with that,to have world cup every two years!
 geseco1221/09/2021 03:47:27 GMT
they should not ruin the world cup by placing it every 2 years, it would not be very attractive anymore, every 4 years is very good to have a world cup, now I hope that my national team will go so that it will be double happiness.
 shokaku21/09/2021 05:43:52 GMT
Fifa just wants a bigger slice of the pie. With a World Cup sheduled every two years, the first with problems would be the continental confederations, as it would interfere with the Euro, the Copa, the Africa Cup. But i guess that is part of the plan. In the long run, the number of club games had to be reduced, With a major tournament every year, and lots of the time in every year occupied by qualification games for those tournaments, there simply would not be enough left of the seasons to play the Champions League in its current format.
 dule-vu21/09/2021 06:07:57 GMT
I cant believe that wenger,old ronaldo,robert carlos and others think how good is this decision to play every two years!would like to see what would they think when they had 25 and when they played for clubs!
 Rogerio1021/09/2021 08:13:45 GMT
This is all going wrong way in my opinion. 2 years is joke, it's big thing and all just becouse it is only every 4 years and more countries is worse in my opinion even, just like did in the euros. Like really more 16 teams and all them really good, every game was great. But my country sucks at football so we didnt qualify for no big tourneys for long time and don't see that will be every time soon.
 dule-vu21/09/2021 09:15:51 GMT
Donks want to change whole history of football!
 CALICUL21/09/2021 13:42:45 GMT
Who wants to make the world cup at two years wants more money... It's not like when 12 big clubs refuse the new Champions League format and want to make their own Super League, but is only for financial parts. This is wrong and must remain at 4 years.
 dule-vu21/09/2021 13:48:53 GMT
Ronaldo,roberto carlos should stay away from this!
 antonis32121/09/2021 15:21:59 GMT
So , it will take place from November to December , because of the high temperatures , sure it will be interesting to see how this tournament will be . I am used to World Cup being played during the summer all these years , it is better in the summer , to watch these matches during holidays or whatever , I would prefer it that way , but anyway , now we cannot change it , so we''ll see how it will go .
 CALICUL21/09/2021 15:38:55 GMT
to be honest, it doesn't matter when it is. Summer or winter it's ok for me
 dule-vu21/09/2021 18:45:42 GMT
They want to ruin everything because of money,especially old wenger!
 ligador3721/09/2021 20:59:04 GMT
Well, let's hope everything remains as it is. I don't like changes very much, I prefer the traditional. Hopefully it will continue to be a World Cup every 4 years, and not every 2. I would downplay the tournament.
But hey, as they said all this is a matter of money. I also would not have liked the super league that they were planning to build with those 12 or 16 teams (since someone mentioned it),
 dule-vu21/09/2021 21:35:20 GMT
Fifa need to be changed inside,not that they change things!
 CALICUL21/09/2021 22:43:15 GMT
I don't think this World Cup will be organized in every two years because the footballers' schedule is too difficult...
 dule-vu21/09/2021 22:47:36 GMT
Fifa will do many wrong things in next years!
 CALICUL21/09/2021 23:11:26 GMT
until then, watch football and bet
