As the world prepares for the 2022 FIFA Qatar World Cup, there is one question on everyone’s mind: what time zone will the games be played in? With Qatar located on the west coast of Asia, there is a significant time difference between Qatar and many of the world’s other major soccer powers.
From the west coast of Canada, Vancouver, Qatar is 11 hours ahead, this is PT.
From the east coast of Canada, Toronto, Qatar is 8 hours ahead, this is ET.
This presents a challenge for fans wanting to watch the games live and the opening and closing ceremonies. As most will have to wake up early in the morning. Sorry night owls! No matter what time zone you’re in, you can be sure that the world will be tuning in to watch the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
