3 Min Read

Begining Sunday, Taarifa will keep the esteemed audience updated on the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ scheduled to kick off in few hours from now.

With excellent reporting, our audience will keep track of the tournament via synchronized platforms including Kinyarwanda, English, social media, and multimedia.

Pictured above is the official tournament emblem serving as a beacon across the globe; drawing fans to a new type of tournament where everything is within easy reach.

Meanwhile,  for the first time ever, instead of one official song, a full FIFA World Cup™ Official Soundtrack has been released. 

With Qatar playing host to the first FIFA World Cup™ ever in the Arab world, a unique and extraordinary stage has been created for the teams, the players and, of course, the fans.

An official mascot can be seen at all the 8 stadiums hosting various matches of the tournament.

According to local press in Qatar, several national football teams have already arrived in the country ahead of their scheduled matches.

The opening ceremony of the World Cup will take place on Sunday at 17:30 local time (14:30 GMT) at the 60,000-capacity Al Bayt Stadium.

FIFA has yet to announce a full list of performers. South Korea’s BTS said Jungkook, one of seven members of the boy band, would perform a track titled Dreamers at the ceremony.

Others named as possible performers include the Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams and Nora Fatehi.

British singer Dua Lipa denied a report that she was set to perform. Some Spanish media reports said Shakira would also not perform.

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has hailed the “commercial success” of this year’s World Cup, saying FIFA was set to generate $600 to $700m more than past tournaments.

“We sold the media rights for around $200 million more than the last World Cup,” he said. “We sold the sponsorship rights for also around $200 million more than the last World Cup.”

“And as far as ticketing and hospitality rights are concerned, we are at almost two to 300 million more than the last World Cup,” he said.
