In total, 500 hours of FIFA World Cup content will be broadcast across SBS and SBS VICELAND throughout the tournament - including highlights shows, classic matches and match replays - in addition to live match coverage.

Many matches will be at favourable times for Aussie fans, with eight matches in the group stage set to kick off during prime time at 9pm (AEDT) and 16 group stage matches to kick off at 6am (AEDT).



The World Cup final will be held on December 19 at the Lusail Stadium in the Qatari capital of Doha.

Audiences will also be offered comprehensive access to World Cup content across SBS's digital platforms, including live streams, match replays, various mini-matches and more available via SBS On Demand.

Plus, the new SBS Sport website will be your home for all the latest highlights, interviews, video extras, news, feature stories, opinions and all the major talking points from Qatar 2022.

While 29 nations have already secured their place at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, there are still a handful battling to qualify. 

The Socceroos are one nation still in the running but must overcome the UAE and Peru in the play-offs after finishing third behind Japan and Saudi Arabia in their AFC group.

Australia's Graham Arnold was present at the official World Cup draw in Doha on April 2, where every nation learnt their opponents and the match schedule.
