The 22nd edition of the largest soccer team tournament will take place from November 21 to December 18, 2022, in one of the main changes to the competition, which is usually held between June and July.
This is the third time that an adult national team soccer World Cup has been held in Asia, after the one played in Korea and Japan in 2002; and Russia 2018, with one of its headquarters on this continent.
In addition, it will be the last time that the tournament will have 32 participants, since from the 2026 World Cup, which will be jointly organized by Canada, the United States and Mexico, the number of qualified teams will increase to 48 teams.
Although each confederation defines the classification mechanism for its representatives, FIFA decided that the quota distribution would be as follows:
- Asia (AFC): 4.5 seats
- Africa (CAF): 5 places
- Central America, North America and the Caribbean (Concacaf): 3.5 seats
- South America (Conmebol): 4.5 seats
- Oceania (OFC): 0.5 places
- Europe (UEFA): 13 places
- Organizer: 1 quota
FIFA has not defined how the AFC, Concacaf, Conmebol and OFC half-quota pairs will be defined. Although historically there have been back-and-forth matches, it is likely that due to the tight schedule it will take place in a single match on a neutral court.
After the FIFA date of November 2021, ten teams secured their qualification to Qatar 2022 and joined Qatar, which had secured a place as organizer, and Germany and Denmark, the first classified on the field.
Of the 13 teams that have already secured their presence in the World Cup, ten are European, three are South American and one Asian (Qatar):
