This Wednesday, December 7 (12/07), and Thursday, December 8 (12/08), the 2022 World Cup will have no games played.
With the end of the round of 16, the competition takes a break for the first time and the next matches of the world only happen again on Friday, December 9 (09/12).
After all, why will the 2022 World Cup have two days without games?
The break follows the schedule defined by the International Football Federation (FIFA). The two days without games will allow the teams to rest and prepare for the games that will define the four semifinalists of the 2022 Cup.

The group stage, on the other hand, had a tighter schedule than usual and FIFA, at the time the schedule was released, cited Qatar’s geography as an advantage.
“The compact nature of the tournament – no need for air travel to move between venues – will allow organizers, for the first time, to optimize specific match demands for the benefit and comfort of fans, teams and media,” the Federation said.
