Your guide to the 2022 World Cup

Welcome to the only guide you’re going to need for this year’s World Cup: After almost 12 years of build-up, 865 qualifying games and 2424 goals, we’re only two days away from the start of the 2022 Cup. The 32 squads have arrived and fans are on their way to Doha, where at 18:00 CLT on Sunday the hosts will play Ecuador in the first game of the tournament.

This will be a World Cup of firsts: the first time the tournament comes to the Middle East; the first time a country with a population half the size of Alexandria hosts the tournament; and likely ranked first on the all-time “most controversial World Cups” list.

And a first for us, too: This is the first time that Your Wealth has been sent out mid-way through the month, timed to coincide with the start of the tournament. If Qatar can get away with putting European football on ice for a whole month, we hope you’ll forgive us for keeping you folks waiting an extra two weeks for your essential guide to Qatar 2022.
