Following a painfully slow two years of professional sport, 2022 promises to be one to remember with several headline acts returning to the schedule. Followers of American Football have the NFL regular season fast approaching, the Grand National in England returns for lovers of thoroughbred horse racing while those with a passion for boxing have Tyson Fury v Dillian Whyte in spring. The standout of the programme takes place in November and December when the FIFA World Cup returns as the most famous names in soccer battle it out for a place in the history books.
Qatar provides the backdrop with the games moved from the summer months of June and July to the winter months of November and December. That shake-up of the usual schedule is in response to the unbearably high temperatures expected in the region with the later start time brought in to help the matches pass in the safest way possible. Playing and even watching outdoor sporting events in Qatar during summer isn’t only impossible, but seriously dangerous. Despite the World Cup opening ceremony being pushed back five months, organisers promise it will be worth the wait for everyone involved, from the players and fans to the commentators and online betting enthusiasts.

At the stadium
The best way to soak up the unique atmosphere of a FIFA World Cup is to attend the stadium, see the players in person, enjoy the occasion with fellow fans and celebrate the triumphs of your favourite team. Going to the stadium isn’t an option for many fans but if you have the chance to go to Qatar and land a ticket for your match of choice, we advise doing so.
It’s one to tick off any sports fans’ bucket list. If you are going to Qatar, it’s important that you plan well in advance and only purchase match tickets from an official vendor at face value. Don’t be duped into paying over the odds or risk being stuck with a fake ticket that will cause you to be denied entry to the stadium.

You can watch from the comfort of your own home on your own or with friends and family. Why not throw your very own World Cup 2022 watch party? For a bit more atmosphere, you could also visit a sports bar.
Not going to be at home during the game? There’s no need to miss out thanks to live streaming apps that can be downloaded and viewed on your Android or iOS smartphone. The best live streams offer HD quality with clear sound, commentary, stats, scores and more.
Turn everyday scenarios like the commute home from work or a dinner date into a chance to watch the big match live. You are in complete control of not only how you view but where you view.
