Football super fans from all over the globe can officially get excited about the 2022 World Cup as FIFA has just unveiled the emblem for the forthcoming tournament to be held in Qatar.

The 2022 emblem was revealed simultaneously in the host country as well as 24 other major cites around the world including London, Johannesburg, Mexico City, Mumbai, Paris, Madrid, Milan, and Seoul.

According to FIFA, the insignia is meant to embody the vision of “an event that connects and engages the entire world,” while also reflecting the culture in which the sporting event is taking place. The curves represent the undulations of Qatar’s desert dunes and the unbroken loop depicts both the number eight — also a nod to the eight stadiums that will host the fixtures — and the infinity symbol. Additionally, the emblem is marked with floral and geometric patters in maroon. The new emblem also echoes the shape of the FIFA World Cup Trophy as well as the woollen shawls that are typically worn by the citizens of Arab and Gulf countries in the winter.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup will take place in November and December, a first for the tournament which is usually held in June and July. The tournament kicks off on November 21, 2022 with the final being played on December 18.

In more football-related news, adidas launched its 2019 Icon Jerseys collection featuring Arsenal, Real Madrid and more.
