    When does World Cup 2022 take place?

    The 2022 World Cup will be held during the winter in Qatar, the first time that the competition will not be taking place during the summer months.

    The 2022 edition will be held from  November 21, 2022 until  December 18, 2022.

    The decision to hold the next World Cup during November and December instead of June and July, as is tradition, is due to the extremely hot summer temperatures in host nation Qatar.

    It will mark the first time that the World Cup is held in the Middle East.
