The 2022 FIFA World Cup is scheduled from November 20, 2022, to December 18, 2022. The tournament extending over a period of 29 days will be hosted by Qatar. There were many requests from users for providing the 2022 FIFA World Cup Schedule in Australian Western/Central/Eastern Standard Time and so here we are with that.

FIFA World Cups are quadrennial events are organized by FIFA, so far 21 tournaments have been organized by FIFA wherein the South American nation Brazil has been the most successful team with five trophies. The tournament is generally organized during the June-July months, however, due to intense heat in Qatar, the matches will be played during the November-December months.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup will feature 32 teams and 64 matches will be played over a period of 29 days. The tournament will be played in two stages one will be the Group stage while the other will be the Knockout stage. In the Group stage, all the 32 teams will be divided into 8 groups of 4 teams each and each team will face all other three teams of the group. The group stage will have 48 matches and based on the performance of teams in the group stage, the top two teams from each group will advance to the knockout stage which will have 16 matches. The matches during this stage will be played in a single-elimination format i.e. loser of any match will be out of contention to win the world cup.

Australia is known for its sporting talent be it Cricket/Football/Hockey/Rugby. Given the wide popularity of football in Australia, a number of football lovers would like to follow each and every match of the competition. As the matches will be played in Qatar which is in a different geographical region, fans might face a slight bit of difficulty in finding the match kick-off time, there are three main time zones used in Australia which are Australian Western Standard Time (AWST) (UTC+08:00), Australian Central Standard Time (ACST) (UTC+09:30), and Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) (UTC+10:00) so there could be a difficulty for the football-loving Aussie to know the match kick-off time of the 2022 FWC. So on this page, we have provided the match schedule/fixture of all 64 matches in three major Australian Time Zones i.e. Western Standard Time, Central Standard Time and Eastern Standard Time.

Match Kick-off Time/Local Time AWST/ACST/AEST Time Difference
