All 8 groups of the 2022 World Cup

The group stage of the World Cup will also be one of the most interesting phases of the tournament in Qatar in 2022. The matches in the groups not only make up the largest part of the 2022 World Cup, but also include all the teams that successfully qualified for the finals. This means that there is at least one nation from almost every continent that will try to go down in World Cup history as the title holder.

The 32 teams of the 2022 World Cup will compete in a total of eight groups of four. After the draw, you will find an overview of the results of the World Cup groups here. In each group, one team from each of the four pots lands.

All World Cup groups 2022 at a glance

The World Cup draw on 1 April 2022 resulted in the following eight groups:

World Cup Group A: Qatar, Ecuador, Senegal, Netherlands
World Cup Group B: England, Iran, USA, Wales
World Cup Group C: Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Poland
World Cup Group D: France, Australia, Denmark, Tunisia
World Cup Group E: Spain, Costa Rica, Germany, Japan
World Cup Group F: Belgium, Canada, Morocco, Croatia
World Cup Group G: Brazil, Serbia, Switzerland, Cameroon
World Cup Group H: Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay, South Korea

These are the venues in the 2022 World Cup group stage

Of course, all venues and stadiums of Qatar will already be used in the group stage. These are the eight World Cup 2022 stadiums where group matches will be played:

Al Bayt Stadium (Al Khor City)
Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium (um Al Afaeo)
Al Thumama (Al Thumama)
Al Janoub Stadium (Al Janoub)
Khalifa International Stadium (Aspire)
Lusail Iconic Stadium (Lusail City)
Education City Stadium (Al Rayyan)
Stadium 974 (Ras Bu Abboud)

Schedule & start times of the World Cup groups in Qatar

The 2022 World Cup opening match will take place on November 20 at al-Bayt Stadium. In this it also comes to the first game of the host Qatar. The final group match will take place on 2 December at Stadium 974 (also known as Ras Abu Aboud Stadium). During this period, all teams in a group meet once.

From 20.11. to 2.12.22 there is not a day on which you do not play. With four games each on one day (except for day 1 and 2), it is probably also the most eventful match days of a World Cup ever.

The start times have been set for 11:00, 14:00, 17:00 and 20:00, except on the decisive match day of each group. At these, both group duels take place at the same time, so that there is no agreement regarding the result. On these days, matches start at 16:00 and 20:00.

This is how it continues in the knockout phase

After the 2022 World Cup group stage, the field of participants will be halved from 32 teams to 16. This means that 16 teams will move into the round of sixteen of the 2022 World Cup. These are the first and second places of each group. The round of sixteen runs from 3 to 6 December 2022 and will be decided in one match

Also in the quarter-finals (9. & 10.12.) and World Cup semi-finals (13. & 14.12.) the promotion will be decided as usual in only one game. The losers of the semi-finals will then meet in the match for 3rd place on 17 December. The big World Cup 2022 final as the crowning finale will then take place one day later, on 18 December.

Promotion mode of the 2022 World Cup group stage

Compared to the last European Championship in 2021, the promotion mode of the 2022 World Cup group stage is much clearer and easier to understand. There are no calculations regarding the best third-placed teams, but the very clear rule that only the first and second of each group can advance to the next round. The other two teams, on the other hand, were eliminated.

Often, however, the fight for promotion to the knockout round is very close and two teams have also collected the same number of points after the same number of games. For many, the question then arises as to who will be promoted and according to which criteria will be decided.

Here is the list of promotion criteria in the event of a tie in the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar:

* Only decisive in case of a tie of more than 2 teams.

The World Cup 2022 group stage starts on 20 November and lasts until 2 December 2022.

In each of the eight groups, two World Cup teams qualify for the round of sixteen of the 2022 World Cup.
