How To Watch the World Cup

FIFA World Cup 2022 Flags

For the first time since 2014, the United States men’s national soccer team is headed to the World Cup – a quadrennial global event where nations compete to be crowned the world champion.

The details: 32 teams, 64 matches, 29 days. The 2022 FIFA Men’s World Cup kicks off on November 20 in Qatar, with the champion crowned on December 18.

This year’s tournament marks several firsts:

  • The first World Cup ever hosted in the Middle East.
  • The first World Cup held in the winter – to avoid Qatar’s intense summer heat.
  • First Men’s World Cup to host women referees.

Will the U.S. men’s national team make us proud? Is France successful at defending its title? Can Brazil and Argentina live up to the fan-favorite hype? No matter who comes out on top, it’s safe to say this is a sporting event you don’t want to miss!
