Qatar’s World Cup preparations have taken a big leap as the legal requirements for the global showpiece to hold have all been prepared.

On Sunday, the minister of justice for the gulf nation Masoud bin Mohammed al-Ameri confirmed that the Qatari legal framework for the hosting of the sports festival in its borders have been completed, and that the nation is fully ready to welcome the world to her cities come November-December.

HE al-Ameri thanked the local organising committee of the tournament for their wise leadership which helped in preparing the framework, which will also serve the same purpose for any global event that comes to their shores again.

HE al-Ameri pointed out that these special legislations, consistent with local and international benchmarks, include special provisions for organising, facilitating and ensuring the security and rights of regulators and participation in this event.

Fans can now start planning their trips to Qatar for the global showpiece, as the latest developments ensure that nothing can legally stand in the way of the groundbreaking tournament.

Fixture dates for Qatar playoffs

As host nation Qatar gets ready, teams are about to slug it out to finally determine who will take part at the 23rd edition of the global showpiece.

Belgium, South Korea, Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Denmark, France, Croatia, Spain, Serbia, England, Switzerland, Iran, the Netherlands and host nation Qatar are going to be joined by 17.more teams who are currently slugging it out in various qualifiers across the world.

The draws will take place in April when the other qualifiers would have been played and the full roster of teams confirmed.

Russia, however, will not take part in the World Cup due to their president’s invasion of Ukraine, whose football has been affected due to an invasion that has caused the loss of lives and property, and the shutdown of football facilities.

The international break begins on Monday with qualifiers happening over the next two weeks across the various confederations.
