Qatar World Cup 2022 draw: date, format and how to watch

The group stage draw for the World Cup 2022 takes place next month, but when exactly is it, how many teams are there and what is the format?

 

The draw for the 2022 World Cup will take place in Doha on April 1, and will determine which teams will face each other at the tournament later this year.

Gareth Southgate will be hoping for a similarly favourable draw to Russia where England defeated Tunisia and Panama in their opening games and were able to rest players for the final group game against Belgium.

It remains to be seen which of Wales and Scotland will join them in the finals via the play-offs.

Here, Telegraph Sport explains how the remaining places in the tournament will be filled and how the draw will work.
When is the draw?

The group stage draw will be held in Qatar on Friday, April 1.
How can I watch the draw?

The draw will be streamed on Fifa’s website and will also be broadcast live on BBC. The exact start time will be confirmed nearer the time.
How many teams will be involved?

The World Cup still features 32 nations who will be draw into eight groups of four lettered A to H. Qatar were granted automatic qualification as hosts and will be drawn into Group A.

These are the teams who have booked their place in the draw at the time of writing.

Europe: England, Germany, Denmark, France, Croatia, Belgium, Spain, Serbia, Switzerland, Holland

South America: Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, Uruguay

Africa: To be confirmed.

Asia: Qatar (hosts), South Korea, Iran, Japan, Saudi Arabia

North and Central America: Canada

What still needs to be decided?

The final European spot will not be filled until later this year, as Scotland’s play-off semi-final against Ukraine has been postponed due to the war in Ukraine. The winner of that match will face Wales in Cardiff in a subsequent play-off final.

The team that finishes fifth in South American qualifying will then face an inter-confederation play-off against a team from Asia. The Asian opponent will be determined by a confederation play-off between two teams in that region. .

The fourth-placed team in the North and Central American region will face the winners of the Oceania region (New Zealand play Solomon Islands in their final on Wednesday) in a play-off.

All play-off matches are scheduled to take place in June, although there is still uncertainty over Ukraine’s meeting with Scotland. Steve Clarke, the Scotland manager, has expressed doubts over whether the game will indeed take place on its rearranged date in June, given the situation in Ukraine.
How are the pots determined?

The 29 qualified teams and three “play-off spot placeholders” will be allocated to four pots of eight teams each, based on the Fifa world rankings released following the conclusion of this week’s international fixtures.

The highest-ranked seven teams will go into Pot 1, along with hosts Qatar. Teams ranked eight to 15 will be placed into Pot 2. Teams ranked 16 to 23 will go into Pot Three, while Pot Four will include teams ranked 24 upwards and the three “play-off spot placeholders”.
Can teams from the same continent play each other?

Fifa says its “general principle”, wherever possible, is to make sure that no group has more than one team from the same “qualification zone” drawn into it. Brazil, for example, cannot be drawn into the same group as Uruguay.

However, this principle does not apply to teams from Europe. There will be 13 European teams in Qatar, which means that five out of the eight World Cup groups will contain two European sides. There cannot be more than two European teams in one group. These geographic principles will also apply to the “play-off placeholder slots”.

What does the ranking system mean for the home nations?

England are guaranteed to be among the top seeds due to their world ranking of fifth. Also certain of a place in Pot 1 are Qatar, Belgium, France, Brazil, Argentina and Spain.

Germany, who are currently ranked at 11, will go into Pot 2 and could therefore be drawn against England in the group stages. Holland and Croatia also represent two potentially tricky opponents in the second pot.

If either Scotland or Wales make it to Qatar ahead of Ukraine, they will go into Pot 4. They can therefore expect to be handed a tough draw, on paper at least.
When does the tournament start?

The Qatar World Cup will be the first edition of the tournament to be played in November and December.

The group stages will kick off Monday, November 21 at the Al Bayt Stadium. In a more condensed tournament, the group stages will feature up to four matches per day over a period of 12 days.

The final will be on Sunday, December 18 at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.
What is the tournament format?

Nations will play each other once in the four-team group stage with the top two qualifying for the last-16. If two teams have the same number of points they will be split by goal difference.

From then on the tournament will be straight knockout, with a series of one-off ties. Draws will result in 30 minutes of extra time and then a penalty shootout if the scores are level.

There will be a third-place play-off between the two losing semi-finalists.
