All You Need to Know about FIFA World Cup 2022 Opening Ceremony

FIFA World Cup 2022

The four-year wait is finally over. The FIFA World Cup 2022 is set to begin today (Sunday, November 20, 2022) in Qatar. At 9:30 p.m., the hosts Qatar will face Ecuador in the first game of the mega sporting event. Before the football action begins, an opening ceremony at Al Bayt Stadium will be held to declare the tournament ‘open.’ Jungkook, the singer of South Korea’s popular band BTS, is among those scheduled to perform at the opening ceremony. 

The stadium can hold 60,000 people, so it will be a spectacular event. The tournament has been plagued by controversy since the hosting rights were awarded to Qatar, but finally, the focus will shift to the footballers and the skills they can display.

The stage is set for the world’s largest sporting event to begin, and what better way to kick off the festivities than with glitz and glam? Here’s everything you need to know about the FIFA World Cup 2022 opening ceremony.

The opening ceremony will take place on Sunday, November 20, prior to Qatar’s first Group A match against Ecuador.

The final of the tournament will take place on December 18 at Lusail Stadium.

The original plan was for the opening ceremony to take place before Qatar’s first game on Monday, creating the unusual situation of two games taking place before it. Qatar’s first match was then moved up by a day.

About FIFA World Cup 2022 Opening Ceremony:

The opening ceremony will take place at the 60,000-capacity Al Bayt Stadium, located 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of Doha. Although FIFA has yet to release a complete list of performers for the opening ceremony, BTS member Jungkook will be performing his song “Dreamers” at the ceremony. According to The Telegraph, the Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams, and Nora Fatehi have all been mentioned as possible performers at the opening ceremony.

Dua Lipa, a British singer, denied reports that she was scheduled to perform. The pop star previously stated that she will visit Qatar once they have fulfilled all of their human rights commitments. Similarly, Sir Rob Stewart declined the invitation to perform at the opening ceremony. He stated in an interview with the Sunday Times, “I was offered a large sum of money, more than one million US dollars, to play there 15 months ago. I declined it. It’s not right to leave.”

Despite the controversy and setbacks, the FIFA World Cup 2022 is set to begin, and football fans all over the world will tune in to watch what promises to be some enthralling action. What the opening ceremony has to offer is yet to be seen.

FIFA World Cup 2022 Opening CeremonyWhen is the opening ceremony going to take place?

When and where will the opening ceremony be held?

The opening ceremony will take place at the 60,000-capacity Al Bayt Stadium, located 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of Doha.

The Al Bayt Stadium, named and designed after the tents used by Gulf nomads, is the farthest venue from central Doha but also one of the largest, with a retractable roof.

Rod Stewart, the singer, told the New York Times that he had turned down an “over $1 million” offer to perform in Qatar.
