Why is Qatar 2022 World Cup in November?
Due to Qatar’s intense summer heat, this World Cup will be held from late-November to mid-December, making it the first tournament not to be held in May, June, or July and to take place in the northern autumn; it will be played in a reduced timeframe of around 29 days.
How is the World Cup location decided?
The system evolved so that the host country is now chosen in a vote by FIFA’s Congress. This is done under an exhaustive ballot system. The decision is currently made roughly seven years in advance of the tournament, though the hosts for the 2022 tournament were chosen at the same time as those for the 2018 tournament.
How much did FIFA give to Qatar?
FIFA have allocated $440 million in prize money for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. This is an increase of $40m compared to the 2018 tournament, while just $358m in prize money was on offer at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
