The 2022 FIFA World Cup is in full swing, and bettors are keeping their eyes on the tournament to see how it unfolds, rooting and betting on their favourite teams. Bookmakers are also offering plenty of ways for the bettors to put their wagering skills and football knowledge to the test, offering.
This edition of the international football tournament started on 20 November and will culminate on 18 December. It is the first world cup that is held in the Arab world and the second cup that is held entirely in Asia. Traditionally, the FIFA World Cups take place during summer, however, due to Qatar’s intense summer heat, it was decided that the championship will be played during winter.
Interestingly enough, this year’s FIFA World Cup is the last tournament with 32 participating teams. The next edition will have 48 participating teams instead. The matches will be played in eight venues across five cities: Lusail, Al Khor, Doha, Al Rayyan, and Al Wakrah.
The 32 participating teams were split into eight groups of four, as follows:
Four matches will be played each day during the group stage over the course of a 12-day period. The quarter-finals and semi-finals will be played over two legs, home and away, while the final will take place at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.
The winners and runner-ups will progress to the round of 16 and the knockout phase, which follows the traditional format with quarter-finals between 9-10 December, semi-finals between 13-17 December, and the final on 18 December. France is the defending champions after defeating Croatia 4-2 in the final of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
