Qatar will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup starting November 20, with 32 teams competing to claim the international championship. Fox is the tournament’s official broadcast partner in the US, though games will also stream in Spanish on Peacock.
Qatar will play against Ecuador in the tournament’s first match, as is customary for the host nation. This is the first World Cup tournament held in the Middle East, and the last before the World Cup expands to 48 teams in 2026.
France won the last World Cup in 2018 and returns as a top seed this year. Brazil is the favorite to win entering the group stages. The United States will compete in Group B of this year’s World Cup after failing to qualify for the tournament in 2018.
How to watch the 2022 World Cup
You can watch the 2022 World Cup on Fox and Fox Sports 1 in the United States starting November 20. The tournament will also stream in Spanish on Peacock, sharing the Telemundo simulcast.
If you have Fox and Fox Sports through your cable or TV provider, you can log in to stream via their respective websites and apps. If you don’t have cable, you can sign up for a live TV streaming service like Sling TV, Hulu Live TV, YouTube TV, or FuboTV to get access to those channels.
Sling TV’s Blue plan is one of the most affordable streaming options for both Fox and Fox Sports, starting at $40 a month. New members get 50% off their first month.
If you don’t mind watching the games in Spanish, Peacock offers the most affordable way to stream World Cup games without cable. The first four days of play will be free on Peacock; you’ll need a Peacock Premium subscription ($5/month) to watch the rest of the World Cup.
