In 2022 the FIFA World Cup will take place in Qatar during the months of November and December. While they are normally played during the summer months, they are pushed back in 2022 to accommodate the milder temperatures of the region. The last FIFA World Cup was held in 2018 in Russia. France was the winner. Does that mean France is the favourite to win in 2022?

Not necessarily. The fact is, it is way too early to tell who will win the World Cup. But we will tell you what some of the experts think.

Interesting information about past World Cup events

The first competition for the World Cup was in 1930 and organized by the Federation International Football Association (FIFA). It was won by Uruguay. With the exception of the time during World War II, the competition takes place every four years.

It consists of international sectional tournaments leading to a final elimination event made up of 32 national teams. World Cup teams are not limited to players of a certain age or amateur status, so the competition serves more nearly as a contest between the world’s best players. Referees are selected from lists that are submitted by all the national associations.
