The 2022 World Cup Huge Success

FIFA World Cup 2022 was a huge success, despite controversies surrounding it. The tournament ended with a total of 32 teams competing in the final, which included one surprise participant. The FIFA World Cup 2022 has finally concluded after providing every one of the iconic games and memories that fans will appreciate eternally, as nobody expected this tournament to be this mouth-watering despite being engulfed by controversies.

It was believed that 4.6 billion people watched Argentina’s 4-2 penalty shootout victory over France, after the game ended in an agonizing 3-3 stalemate in extra time. FIFA did everything possible to ensure that this World Cup is among the greatest in football history. This year’s FIFA World Cup 2022 generated a total of $7.5 billion in commercial partnerships and sales, a $1 billion increase over the previous World Cup in 2018.


With the World Cup 2022 taking place in a Middle Eastern country, FIFA’s predicted net income was $4.7 billion, nearly the same as the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia. FIFA had contracts worth around $3.8 million, or approximately 82% of the overall target through December 2020. FIFA's 2018 World Cup in Qatar was a smashing success, and the organization continues to reap the rewards. FIFA has harvested $7.5 billion from sales of its televisions and broadcasting rights, which is one billion higher than the 2018 tournament in Russia. Because all eight stadiums were within a 50-kilometer radius of Doha, there were fewer travels for players and fans this time around.

According to The Guardian, FIFA executives believe the windfall will yield an additional $700,000 investment for the competition of $300,000 set aside for emergency COVID-19 funding. FIFA earnings are generated primarily through five categories: televisions, broadcasting rights, marketing rights, hospitality rights, and ticket sales.
