Where is World Cup 2022 being held & at which stadiums?

 

History is being made in 2022 as the World Cup finals head to the Middle East for the first time.

The event will also be taking place across November and December, rather than its standard June/July slot, due to the soaring summer temperatures in Qatar and will be completed in a condensed 28-day format.

An eagerly-anticipated competition will get under way on November 21 and will see action taken in across eight specially-built venues in five cities, with the Lusail Iconic Stadium playing host to the final on December 18.

What is the World Cup 2022 official song?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A number of singles will be released from the official FIFA World Cup 2022 Soundtrack.

The first of those was revealed on April 1, with Hayya Hayya (Better Together) made available across multiple platforms.

FIFA has said “the uplifting track, featuring Trinidad Cardona, Davido and Aisha, draws on R&B and reggae influences” as the organisation seeks to “connect with audiences worldwide through the shared passions of football and music”.
