For the 2022 edition, there are 32 teams that qualified for the World Cup. Qatar automatically qualified as the host country, while the other 31 teams earned their spots through their confederations. The distribution of slots per confederation is as follows:

  • Africa (CAF): 5 teams

  • Asia (AFC): 4 or 5 teams

  • Europe (UEFA): 13 teams

  • North and Central America (CONCACAF): 3 or 4 teams

  • South America (CONMEBOL): 4 or 5 teams

  • Oceania (OFC): 0 or 1 team

The reason why some confederations have a range of slots is because there are two intercontinental play-offs that will determine the final two spots.

The draw for the play-offs will take place on April 1, 2022, and the matches will be played on June 13 and 14, 2022.

The other seven top seeds will be placed in Groups B to H. The remaining 24 teams will be drawn from three pots according to their ranking and geographical criteria.
