Sunday marked the beginning of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, and Google celebrated with a Doodle and a brand-new online game.
As the globe focuses its attention to the largest competition in football, the animated World Cup Doodle shows a pair of colorful cleats practicing their passing techniques with a ball. On their mobile device, fans can Google “World Cup Qatar 2022” to compete with other fans all around the world. Fans who want to become involved themselves can do so.
The World Cup matches 32 of the world’s top national teams against one another to determine which nation will rule soccer for the following four years. The competition generally takes place in June or July every four years, but this is the first time it has been conducted in November.
The games were moved to later in the year because it is the first time that a Middle Eastern nation, which experiences oppressive midsummer heat, is hosting the tournament. In order to lessen the interruption to midway, the tournament was also shortened by four days. The games will end on December 18.
The sole English-language broadcasting license for the World Cup in the US belongs to Fox. Numerous live TV streaming services in the US, including Sling TV Blue, YouTube TV, Hulu Plus Live TV, DirecTV Stream, and FuboTV, carry FS1 and regional Fox stations.
