When and where is the FIFA World Cup?
The 2022 version of the FIFA World Cup is from Sunday November 20th to Sunday December 15th. It is in Qatar as they won the rights back in 2010, but there is controversy to do with human rights and other things over there.
Who will be playing for England? The final England squad won’t be announced until Thursday 10th November, so may update this after the squad announcrment to see if any players from Yorkshire are going.
How do I watch the World Cup?
The 2022 Fifa World Cup will mainly be on BBC and ITV with England’s opening game on 21st November on BBC, their 2nd game on ITV and their final group game on BBC.
When is it on e.g. Times?
On the opening day there is only one match which will kickoff at 4pm GMT, and then the rest of the group stage there will be either 3 or 4 matches per day with kickoff times at 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm British time, the final group matches and knockout stages will be 3pm and 7pm and the final is a 3pm kickoff British time.
Where will the games be played?
The group games will be played in 8 stadiums: Al Bayt Stadium, Khalifa International Stadium, Al Thumanu Stadium, Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, Lusail Stadium, Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, Education City Stadium and Al Janoub Stadium.
Who are the presenters and pundits for BBC and ITV during the World Cup?The BBC haven’t announced their team yet but expect the likes of Alex Scott, Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan, Alan Shearer and Micah Richards to be involved, and ITV have confirmed and here are the ITV presenters pundits and commentators for the 2022 FIFA World Cup:
Laura Woods (who will still also be doing TalkSport Breakfast from Qatar as well)
Nigel De Jong
Ally McCoist (Who like Woods will still be doing TalkSport Breakfast
Referee analyst: Peter Walton
My predictions for who gets out of each group are as follows:
Holland although Senegal could
Obviously as an Englishman, I would love to see England win it but I think realistically it’ll be one of Spain, Germany, Brazil, Argentina or Belgium who win it.
