FIFA World Cup 2022 has released their official opening credits

The short video captures everything football fans are excited for, and the Qatar theme is out too!

With just 17 days to go, the FIFA World Cup 2022 fever is reaching a near frenzy. From FanZones to epic screening spots, there’s a lot going on!

Adding fuel to the fanatic fire, FIFA’s official Twitter handle has just revealed the opening credits for the highly anticipated event! The clip kicks off with a bunch of local kids from Qatar playing football.

The ball then soars over the two magnificent World Cup stadiums – Khalifa International and Education City – before taking viewers on a journey through some iconic sights in Doha.



These include Al Bidda Park, Al Fanar near Souq Waqif, the Museum of Islamic Art, the Doha skyline and the National Museum of Qatar. Woven through the video are also key moments from previous World Cups tournaments, but you’ll really have to keep an eye out for it!

All of the eight stadiums make a flash appearance, right from Stadium 974, Al Janoub, Al Bayt, and Ahmad bin Ali to Al Thumama. And of course, what better note to end on than with the site that will host the final match, Lusail Stadium.

FIFA World Cup has also released the Official Qatar Theme, now available on Spotify! The country’s been gearing up for a horde of visitors, upping rooms available and even keeping ticket sales open.

In case you haven’t memorised the match schedule already, do catch it now and save the date to support your favourite teams! In the meantime, watch this space for FIFA World Cup 2022 updates and information.
