Because of Qatar's harsh desert climate, unlike previous FIFA tournaments, the regular summer FIFA World Cup schedule was moved to the winter for the first time ever.

FIFA will use semi-automated offside technology after the World Cup in Russia in 2018 saw the successful use of VAR technology.

When a player is offside, 12 specialized monitoring cameras positioned beneath the stadium roof will track the ball and send offside alerts to the video match referees.

The FIFA Arab Cup 2021TM and the FIFA Club World Cup 2021TM, among other FIFA competitions, successfully tested the workflow of semi-automated offside technology and connected ball technology, according to FIFA.

All audiences have heard from the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, which emphasized that the nation is on schedule to host a World Cup that is carbon-neutral.

The committee intends to carry out its strategy using a batch of 741-unit electric buses.

First compact World Cup

Qatar's close proximity will help the nation's environmental initiatives advance by limiting gas emissions for all parties.

Because every stadium is located within 55 kilometers of the city, it is quite convenient for everyone.

First to host women referees

Three women will create history by officiating the men's World Cup: Rwanda's Salima Mukansanga, France's Stephanie Frappart, and Japan's Yoshimi Yamashita.

On the largest platform in football, the trio will serve as captains and head referees for the competition.
