The last two qualifiers for Qatar 2022 will be hosted in Doha (Qatar) in June.

The ‘FIFA’ stated that the FIFA World Cup™ intercontinental playoff matches will take place on June 13th and June 14th, 2022 and will kick off at 21:00 local time.

The very last chance to book a spot in Qatar will feature Australia or UAE vs. Peru and Costa Rica vs. New Zealand.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup™ is scheduled to be the 22nd running of the FIFA World Cup™ competition, the quadrennial international men’s football championship contested by the national teams of the member-associations of FIFA. It is scheduled to take place in Qatar from November 21st to December 18th, 2022.

The eagerly anticipated FIFA World Cup™ intercontinental playoffs, which will see four countries vie for the remaining two slots at football’s flagship event, will be held at Qatar’s 50,000-capacity Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium. On June 13th, the winners of the AFC playoff between Australia and UAE on June 7th – also to be played at the same venue – will face Peru, who finished fifth in the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL) qualifiers. One day later, Costa Rica, who came fourth in the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) qualifiers, will play Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) champions New Zealand. Both matches will start at 21:00 local time.

The Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium was inaugurated on December 18th, 2020 on the occasion of the Amir Cup final, and recently hosted four matches during the FIFA Arab Cup 2021™. The venue is host to the popular Al-Rayyan Sports Club (Qatari multisports club) and features innovative cooling technology that allows an enjoyable experience for teams and fans during the hotter months of the year.

The ‘FIFA’ further stated that during the FIFA World Cup™, the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium will stage six group matches and one round‑of-16 match – meaning one of the winners in June will go back there to face Japan on November 27th. According to the results of the final draw held on April 1st, the winners of the first match will be in Group D and will face 2018 champions France in their opening match. The winners of the second playoff will be in Group E and will kick off their World Cup campaign against Spain.

Information on ticket sales will be available on in due course. To safeguard the health of everyone attending, all spectators must follow the requirements of the Qatar Ministry of Public Health.
