FIFA World Cup 2022: 8 Amazing Stadiums To Host The Games

The start of the FIFA World Cup 2022 is just around the corner, and the entire world is eagerly awaiting it. The venerable football competition between the men’s national teams will take place in Qatar. Japan and South Korea jointly hosted the 2002 World Cup. This is the only other time it will be in Asia.
