The stage is all set to witness the beginning of the world’s greatest sporting tournament, the FIFA World Cup 2022 opening ceremony will set off to a trailblazing start right ahead of the mega encounter in the WC opener as the host Qatar takes on Ecuador.

Earlier the plan for WC’s opening ceremony was supposed to be held before Qatar’s first game on Monday, however, that would have created an unusual situation where two games will be held before the great show begins, hence Qatar’s opening match was preponed by a day.

The opening ceremony will take place at the Al Bayt Stadium which boasts a capacity of 60,000 and is located 40 KM north of the Qatari capital city of Doha. The stadium is named and designed after the tents used by nomads in the Gulf and is the furthest venue out of all designated for the FIFA WC games from Central Doha but is also one of the biggest and has a retractable roof.
