FIFA has confirmed that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar will begin on Nov. 21, according to the Associated Press.
The organization also announced that the competition will take place over the course of just 28 days, four days shorter than usual.
FIFA previously announced that the World Cup Final would take place on Dec. 18, which is also Qatar National Day.
The competition was originally set to take place in June and July, but was moved in anticipation of Qatar’s summer heat.
