What is the Match Schedule for the 2022 World Cup Games?

Although the format in which the World Cup is played is set to change in 2026, the current match schedule and format for the 2022 World Cup is as follows.

  • 32 national teams competing over the course of a month in the host nation, which in 2022, is Qatar
  • In the group stage, teams compete within eight groups of four teams each
  • Each group plays a round-robin tournament, in which each team is scheduled for three matches against other teams in the same group. So each national team can expect to play the other national teams in their group at least once.
  • The top two teams from each group advance to the knockout stage.
  • Points are used to rank the teams within a group. Three points for a win, one for a draw, and none for a loss.
  • However, once a national team reaches the knockout stage, the games become single-elimination, meaning a loss disqualifies your team from advancing
  • The knockout stage begins with the round of 16, in which the winner of each group plays against the runner up of the same group.
  • This is followed by the quarter-finals, the semi-finals, the third-place match, and then the final game.

Benefits of an Airbnb for the FIFA 2022 World Cup

While many of us have used Airbnb in the past, the benefits to utilizing one during the FIFA 2022 World Cup far outweigh the benefits of using a traditional hotel. Below, we’ll review some reasons why you should consider an Airbnb over a traditional hotel for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

  • Availability – as of writing, there are a number of beautiful Airbnb’s available for rent for the FIFA 2022 World Cup. However, in our research, we saw limited availability for traditional hotels and were dismayed by the lack of available options.
  • Cost – in addition, Airbnb prices for the 2022 World Cup games were generally cheaper than traditional hotels. If you’re looking to keep costs down, we would recommend considering an Airbnb for your trip to the World Cup.
  • Privacy – lastly, with hundreds-of-thousands of fans descending to Doha, Qatar for the World Cup, expect traditional hotels to be packed with fans and revelers. If you are looking for a bit more privacy, a traditional home on Airbnb is your best bet to do so.
