The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy of Qatar, which is the local organising committee of the 2022 FIFA World Cup has taken up the initiative to generate more interest amongst the Indians for the forthcoming FIFA World Cup which is, incidentally, going to be the second edition of the quadrennial flagship tournament hosted by an Asian Football Confederation (AFC) member association, after the 2002 tournament, which was co-hosted by South Korea and Japan.

Along with many other firsts, the upcoming edition has been scheduled between November 21, 2022, and December 18, 2022, instead of the conventional International FIFA window during June-July, thereby making it the first-ever winter World Cup.

On the other hand, the 2022 tournament will be the most compact in terms of travelling distance. The eight stadiums which will host all the matches are situated within a 50-kilometre radius circle which provides the supporters with an opportunity to watch multiple matches in a day during the round-robin stage.
