A while ago, FIFA announced the schedules for the FIFA World Cup 2022, which is all set to be hosted in Qatar. The showpiece event will begin on November 19, 2022, at the Al Bayt Stadium and will end on December 18 at the Lusail Stadium which has a seating capacity of 80,000 people. The group stage will have four games on each day which will be held in and around Doha to avoid inconvenience for fans. But no sooner the schedule was announced the fans were quite unhappy with it as they thought that it would interfere with the domestic schedule.

Will interfere with leagues

"The World Cup is always a festival of football, a real celebration for the fans who come on-site and watch. In Qatar, with the compact nature, this is going to be amplified even more with 32 teams and 32 sets of supporters all in and around Doha," said FIFA Chief Tournaments and Events Officer, Colin Smith. Coming back to the schedule, we are sure the FIFA and the other football governing bodies would have an answer about the domestic tournaments.
