Why we are talking about temperature in Qatar? In 2022, the FIFA World Cup will be held in the scorching heat of the Middle East for the first time.
Qatar was awarded the hosting rights for the tournament, causing the competition to be rescheduled for November and December.
World Cups are traditionally held in the middle of the year, during the height of summer in European countries, but Qatar’s intense heat has compelled FIFA to shift the dates.

What is the temperature in Qatar? 🔥

Qatar is regarded as one of the world’s hottest countries.
Yearly average temperatures range from 14 to 41°C (57-105°F), but temperatures can easily reach 30°C (86°F) in most months.
The hottest day ever recorded in Qatar was in July 2010, when temperatures reached 50.4°C (122.7°F).
A year-high temperature of 48°C (118°F) was recorded in June 2022.
What will be the hottest temperatures during the World Cup in 2022?
The 2022 World Cup kicks off on November 20 in Qatar, just as temperatures begin to drop in preparation for winter.
Early group games are expected to be the hottest, with highs of 26-28°C (78-82°F).
Each day of the event, two group games will be played at 13:00 and 16:00 (local time), when the greatest temperatures of the World Cup will be encountered.
To further reduce the heat in Qatar, knockout matches will be played only in the evening.
The knockout stages will also not begin until December, when Qatar officially enters winter, with typical daily temperatures dropping to between 19-26°C (66-78°F).

Are Qatar’s stadiums air-conditioned? 💨

One of the most significant changes that Qatari officials have had to make is to ensure that all eight stadiums participating in the competition are air-conditioned.
Despite worries about coolant machines’ potential to significantly reduce temperatures in open-air stadiums, each venue has been outfitted with specially built cooling units.
The technique, developed in collaboration with Qatar University, uses solar energy to power fans that draw in and chill outside air.
Dr. Saud Abdulaziz Abdul Ghani, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Qatar University and dubbed “Dr Cool,” initiated the initiative and will be involved in efforts to achieve a full roll out at all eight venues in time for the opening game.
Dr. Saul explained to FIFA.com, “We’re not simply chilling the air, we’re purifying it.”
We’re cleaning the air for the audience. People with allergies, for example, will have no problems inside our stadiums because we have the cleanest and purest air in the world.” ” Pre-cooled air is introduced into the stadium via grills constructed into the stands and enormous nozzles along the pitch. Cooled air is then pulled back, re-cooled, filtered, and sent out where it is needed using the air circulation technique.”
Inside Qatar’s air-conditioned stadiums, temperatures are forecast to be approximately 21°C (70°F).
