World Cup 2022 Schedule Released, with Four Matches a day starting at 10 am and final week before Christmas Day
10 am kick-offs and four group matches a day as 2020 FIFA World Cup schedule announced
Action will get going on November 21, 2022 – as the world tunes in to the first-ever winter World Cup.
World Cup 2022 Schedule Released The group games will be played over 12 days,
with matches not being assigned to particular venues until after the finals draw in March 2022 to choose optimal
kick-off times to suit television audiences in different countries as well as supporters out in Qatar.
Kick-off times for the first two rounds of matches will be 1 pm, 4 pm, 7 pm and 10 pm local time (10 am, 1 pm, 4 pm and 7 pm Irish time),
and with the stadiums all within a 40-mile radius of each other, it will enable supporters and media to realistically
attend two games on the same day.
For all but three games there will be a three-day rest period in between.
There will also be no need for teams, supporters or media to spend time flying or taking long rail or
road journeys between matches.
Kick-off times in the final round of group games and knock-out round matches will be at 6 pm and 10 pm local time.
