Ignite Media Group secures rights for 2022 FIFA World Cup

Ignite Media Group has acquired the rights to broadcast live 2022 FIFA World Cup games set to commence in Qatar on Sunday, November 20, 2022.

Headquartered at North Ridge, Accra – the IMG will exploit the rights via three free-to-air satellite broadcasters: an English-language television station, an Akan-language channel, and a radio station.

The 28 games will be live on all Ignite Media platforms on  Metro TV, Original TV, and Original 91.9 FM to give Ghanaians up-to-the-minute reports of the happenings in the 2022 World Cup.

Exclusive player interviews, behind the scene photos and videos, and more, will be available on our online portals – Metrotvonline.com and myoriginalonline.com and also on our various social media platforms.

This means our viewers, listeners, and readers will enjoy unlimited coverage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The World Cup 2022 will take place in Qatar from 20 November to 18 December 2022.

This will be the first World Cup to be held in the Arab world, and the second World Cup held entirely in Asia after the 2002 tournament in South Korea and Japan.

The tournament will be the last with 32 participating teams. The field will increase to 48 teams for the 2026 tournament in the United States, Mexico, and Canada.

Because of Qatar’s intense summer heat and humidity, this World Cup will be held in the winter, the first tournament not held in May, June, or July, and to take place in the northern autumn. It will be played in a reduced timeframe of 29 days.

The opening match will be between Qatar and Ecuador at Al Bayt Stadium, Al Khor.

The final will be held on 18 December 2022, Qatar’s National Day. The reigning World Cup champions are France, who defeated Croatia 4–2 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup final.
