A closer look at the competition
The competition has been administered by FIFA since 1930, and it has been in the world of international teams for 32 years since the 1998 edition. This event consists of rounds in which 32 countries are followed by a knockout phase for 16 teams with France winning against Croatia 4-2 just last year! The event took place in Qatar from November 20 to December 18 before going back home to Russia for the next qualifying round match.
Qatar won the 2022 World Cup bid with a promise to spend billions of dollars on new stadiums and infrastructure improvements.
In 2009, FIFA’s bidding committee came up with the idea to auction off the hosting of two World Cups in 2018 and 2022. As of February 2nd, candidates were only allowed to apply for one of these two tournaments. The bids were ranked according to criteria such as qualification, infrastructure, experiences and other factors. Eventually, a decision was made by FIFA for Qatar to host both of these prestigious events.
Prize Money for winning Team
The 10 teams that advance to the final round of the FIFA World Cup 2022 would earn a staggering USD 42 million. The second place team would win USD 30 million, while third and fourth placed squads would take home USD 27 million and USD 25 million, respectively.
