The Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup is now in full swing, with the first few matches have been played to rapturous applause from fans worldwide. Qatar has been in the spotlight for many years as it prepares to host the biggest tournament in international football. Attention has only intensified in recent months as the date of the World Cup draws closer.
Qatar has remained steadfast in its commitment to hosting a successful World Cup, and the opening rounds of games have shown that Qatar is more than capable of putting on a world-class event.
From a viewership perspective, Qatar 2022 is already proving to be a massive success. For example, over 6.4 million people in Colombia tuned in to watch Ecuador’s win against Japan. This was 50% of all TV viewers in Brazil during that time slot, showing just how popular the World Cup is even outside of Europe and South America.
There are high expectations for Qatar 2022, and so far, Qatar is living up to them. The next few weeks will be crucial as we see which teams make it through to the tournament’s latter stages, but so far, Qatar 2022 has been an unqualified success.
