Four matches will be played each day during the group stage of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Fifa has announced.

The tournament will take place in November and December 2022.

The group games will be played over a 12-day period, with matches not being assigned to particular venues until after the finals draw in March 2022.

Kick-off times for the first two rounds of games will be 1pm, 4pm, 7pm and 10pm local time with the eight stadiums all within a 40-mile radius of each other.

It means supporters and media could attend two games on the same day.

Kick-off times in the final round of group games and knockout round matches will be at 6pm and 10pm local time

The tournament’s opening match will be played at the 60,000-seater Al Bayt stadium in Al Khor on Monday, 21 November in a game which will feature hosts Qatar.

The final venue is the 80,000-capacity Lusail Stadium in Doha on Sunday, 18 December at 15:00 GMT.
