    Shortest schedule since 1978

    The tournament in Qatar is the shortest World Cup in 44 years with only 29 days. The 1978 World Championship in Argentina lasted 25 days.

    4 matches per day

    The schedule consists of four matches per day. This gives the players enough rest, in the short and busy schedule.

    Flexible schedule

    The times and stadiums of the matches will only be filled in after the draw.

    This allows the organization to organize the schedule so that all football fans of the playing countries can watch the match live.

    Group matches format

    The group matches will be played according to the schedule below. Each team plays against every other team from the same group, according to the league system. This means that one gets three points for a win, one point for a draw and zero points for a loss.

    The last two matches of each group will be kicked off at the same time on the same day. This makes it impossible to look at the result of a competitor.
