FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) World Cup is a much-awaited event of the year for all sports lovers around the world. The unversed FIFA World Cup is a soccer match played between 32 teams including the automatically qualifying host nation.
The inaugural World Cup match was held in 1930 and thereafter every 4 years we witness the game of football at its best, being played by some of the world-renowned football-playing countries. Only during the period of World War II was when the proceedings of the match stopped. But once the world war got over in 1946, and 1950 we again resumed our madness for football.
The matches are played for over a month in and around the host nation to determine that year's champion.
The current champion of the World Cup in France won in 2018 in a tournament held in Russia.
After a gap of 4 years, we are all set to witness the craze for this sport in Qatar this time. With all that has happened in the past 2 years, countries are still reluctant to welcome tourists without implying quarantine rules.
But, to let the sports lovers enjoy the matches with ease, Qatar Government has decided to lift the quarantine rules for the spectators. This means that the tourists do not have to go through a mandatory quarantine process after arriving in Qatar. Having said that, the flyers will still have to take the pre-departure and pre-arrival Covid tests.
