How does qualifying for the World Cup work?

Each continent has its own system for World Cup qualification. For starters, Qatar are granted automatic qualification for hosting the 2022 tournament. Based on the quality and number of its teams, each continent receives a certain number of qualifying places, with the tournament proper containing 32 teams. The number of qualifying countries are designated as follows:

  • Europe: 13
  • Africa: 5
  • South America: 4 or 5
  • Asia: 4 or 5
  • North, Central America and Caribbean: 3 or 4
  • Oceania: 0 or 1 

Where two potential numbers are given, a team will be entered into inter-continental play-offs to determine the final tournament qualifiers.

To determine their qualifying teams, each continent plays out a series of round-robin fixtures, with Europe containing multiple round robins and a short series of play-offs for teams finishing 2nd in their group.

When is each stage?

The 2022 World Cup qualifiers will take place between March 2021 and March 2022 during a series of international breaks in which matches will be played within the following time frames.
