FIFA World Cup 2022™ - News - Draw sets the stage for an exciting FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021™

The draw for the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021™ was carried out at Katara Opera House in Doha tonight.

The 9 highest-ranked groups, together with host nation Qatar, will be a part of the seven winners from the qualifying stage in the closing match. The 16 groups have been drawn into 4 teams of 4, as follows:

Group A: Qatar, Iraq, Winner of Oman v. Somalia and Winner of Bahrain v. Kuwait

Group B: Tunisia, UAE, Syria and Winner of Mauritania v. Yemen

Group C: Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Winner of Jordan v. South Sudan and Winner of Palestine v. Comoros

Group D: Algeria, Egypt, Winner of Lebanon v. Djibouti and Winner of Libya v. Sudan

The 4 group winners and 4 group runners-up will proceed to the knockout stage: quarter-finals, semi-finals, third-place play-off and closing. The matches will happen at six Qatar 2022 stadiums, with the venues set to be confirmed sooner or later.

The match will happen later this yr – throughout an analogous timeslot to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. It is seen as an important alternative to check operations and services precisely a yr earlier than Qatar hosts the first World Cup in the Middle East and Arab world.

Ahead of the draw, FIFA confirmed the pairings for the qualifying matches. The 14 lowest-ranked groups will participate in single-leg matches, based mostly on the April version of the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking:

Oman (FIFA world rating: 80) v. Somalia (197)

Lebanon (93) v. Djibouti (183)

Jordan (95) v. South Sudan (169)

Bahrain (99) v. Kuwait (148)

Mauritania (101) v. Yemen (145)

Palestine (104) v. Comoros (131)

Libya (119) v. Sudan (123)
