World Cup Qatar 2022 logo

By Chris Dinsdale

November 21, 2022 - December 18, 2022 - The FIFA World Cup takes place in Qatar, in November 2022. FIFA launched the official emblem for the 2022 World Cup in Doha at 20:22 local time (19:22 CET). The emblem was projected onto several of Qatar’s most iconic buildings, including Burj Doha, Katara Cultural Village Amphitheatre, and Al Zubarah Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

To quote FIFA’s press release: “The emblem embodies the vision of an event that connects and engages the entire world, while also featuring striking elements of local and regional Arab culture and allusions to the beautiful game.

The swooping curves of the emblem represent the undulations of desert dunes and the unbroken loop depicts both the number eight – a reminder of the eight astonishing stadiums that will host matches – and the infinity symbol, reflecting the interconnected nature of the event. Besides echoing the shape of the iconic FIFA World Cup Trophy, the emblem’s central form takes inspiration from a traditional woollen shawl. During winter months, shawls are worn around the world and in the Arab and Gulf region in particular by a variety of people and in various styles.”
