Attending Multiple Matches in 1 Day at Qatar 2022

When Qatar was announced as hosts many years ago (Dec 2, 2010) – honestly, the world is so different now in so many ways and many of our readers weren’t legally considered adults back in 2010 and this reflection on time can shake one to the core – one of the first pros was “with a condensed tournament, fans can attend multiple matches in one day!”.

We are happy to say that this is in fact true. You’ll likely want to follow up on how to navigate the metro system specifically to get to matches. The article illustrates where stops are and if you can walk to the stadium or need a bus. There’s also restrictions in place on the FIFA ticketing site to only allow purchase for multiple matches that are “compatible”.

How to Purchase Multiple Tickets For Same Day

Same as always – FIFA’s ticket portal.

Visit our article for more specific details.

Restrictions

The basic restriction here is that there MUST be more than a 4hr window between kickoff for games.

The FIFA site offers a mouthful of details here.

This means you won’t be able to add tickets to your cart with kickoffs that are NOT greater than 4hrs apart. Also, if you already have a ticket to your name, you won’t be able to add a new ticket to your cart that violates this restriction.

Breaking Down Matches

So FIFA lets you know which matches you can purchase together but they list the match #s here. I don’t know about you, but I have no idea what is “Match 13” vs “Match 15”.

And because I love all you fellow World Cup fanatics, I listed these out using the schedule:

    • Match No. 13 & Match No. 16
      • Switzerland vs. Cameroon

    • Match No. 17 & Match No. 19
      • Wales vs. Iran
      • Netherlands vs. Ecuador
    • Match No. 17 & Match No. 20
      • Wales vs. Iran
      • England vs. USA
    • Match No. 18 & Match No. 20
      • Qatar vs. Senegal
      • England vs. USA
  • November 26
    • Match No. 21 & Match No. 23
      • Tunisia vs. Australia
      • France vs. Denmark
    • Match No. 21 & Match No. 24
      • Tunisia vs. Australia
      • Argentina vs. Mexico
    • Match No. 22 & Match No. 24
      • Poland vs. Saudi Arabia
      • Argentina vs. Mexico
  • November 27
    • Match No. 25 & Match No. 27
      • Japan vs. Costa Rica
      • Croatia vs. Canada
    • Match No. 25 & Match No. 28
      • Japan vs. Costa Rica
      • Spain vs. Germany
    • Match No. 26 & Match No. 28
      • Belgium vs. Morocco
      • Spain vs. Germany
  • November 28
    • Match No. 29 & Match No. 31
      • Cameroon vs. Serbia
      • Brazil vs. Switzerland
    • Match No. 29 & Match No. 32
      • Cameroon vs. Serbia
      • Portugal vs. Uruguay
    • Match No. 30 & Match No. 32
      • South Korea vs. Ghana
      • Portugal vs. Uruguay

That’s it in the Group Stages. It is essentially the matches that are the first 2 matches each team plays. The last match of the group stage has all teams in one group playing at the same time and the other group plays 4 hours later.

For example, November 29 has:

  • 18:00
    • Netherlands vs. Qatar
    • Senegal vs. Ecuador
  • 22:00
    • England vs. Wales
    • USA vs. Iran

These games have kickoffs 4 hours apart but in order to be compatible, the rules state more than 4 hours which is why FIFA doesn’t list the games as compatible.

Knockout Rounds

The Round of 16 and Quarterfinal have kickoffs at 18:00 and 22:00.

After that, only 1 game a day.
