FIFA World Cup final draw is scheduled to take place on Friday 1 April at 9pm local time at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre in Qatar.
The 32 nations involved in the 2022 World Cup, 29 of which are currently known, will be drawn into eight groups of four. Two of the remaining three pots will be filled by winners of the intercontinental play-offs on 13 and 14 June, with the final berth determined by Path A of the European qualifying play-offs, in which Wales will face off against either Scotland or Ukraine in the final.
As hosts, Qatar take position A1 from Pot 1, where they are joined by the FIFA Ranking’s seven highest-ranked qualified teams. The countries occupying positions 8-15 on the ranking of the qualified teams have been allocated to Pot 2, while the 16th-23rd best-ranked qualifiers have been placed in Pot 3. Finally, Pot 4 includes the qualified teams in position 24 to 28, plus three placeholders representing the two winners of the intercontinental play-offs and the remaining UEFA play-off winners.
All is set for the World Cup draw tomorrow. Below are the pots based on the current FIFA rankings:
