Almost two months to the day after the 2021 FIFA Gold Cup, the 2022 FIFA World Cup will begin in Qatar. Almost three million fans are expected to make the trip to the host nation to watch the tournament live. There are already a number of high-profile matches on the schedule. These games will be televised on a variety of networks. These include Fox Sports, Fox Soccer, and Telemundo. These broadcasts will be available to viewers across the world.
There is a good chance that the World Cup will be the most watched sports event of all time, with an estimated 5 billion people expected to tune in. The event will be held in Qatar and will include teams from around the world. However, the host nation has faced a number of criticisms regarding its stance on women’s rights and LGBTQ+ rights. Many advocacy groups have raised concerns about Qatar’s stance on these topics.
Among the top teams in the tournament is the United States, which defeated Senegal 1-0 in the last round of group play. France, which won the tournament in France last year, is still hoping to retain its title. However, there is a very real threat that other nations will derail France’s hopes of repeating.
While many will consider the tournament to be a great opportunity for sports fans to get their fix of the game, others will also be upset by the host nation’s stance on homosexuality and women’s rights. Homosexuality is considered a crime in Qatar and can result in up to three years in prison. In addition, women have limited rights in the country, including the need for male guardian approval before they can travel.
There are a number of streaming services available for fans to watch the 2022 World Cup. These services include the FOX Sports app, which is available on mobile devices and games consoles. These platforms will broadcast every match live in 4K. In addition, FOX will produce extensive pre- and post-match programming from the stadium in Doha.
Another streaming service that will be available for fans is Tubi. Tubi is owned by FOX and will provide analysis and highlight content for all of the games played in Qatar. However, it is a subscription-based service. For those who are interested in watching the games, they can use a free trial of the service.
The 2022 FIFA World Cup will be the first tournament held in an Arab-majority nation. It will also be the first World Cup held in a Muslim-majority nation. It will also mark the last time a tournament will involve 32 teams, as 48 will be the norm by the time 2026 rolls around.
While the World Cup will be held in the Middle East, the most action will take place in Doha. Five new stadiums will be built in Qatar to accommodate the large number of spectators expected. These stadiums will also be outfitted with over 15,000 cameras that will monitor spectators.
