It is impossible to make a list of the best apps to follow live results and leave out Soccerway.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup is upon us. Despite the surrounding controversy in Qatar, 32 teams will compete for global glory in matches scheduled to run through December 18. Because of the Middle Eastern locale's intense heat, this is the first time that the World Cup will unfold so late in the year.

In order to house fans and host the 64 matches, Qatar employed (as well as reportedly jailed and deported, according to CNN) thousands of workers and innovative engineers to envision and construct seven new stadiums and renovate another. How much money did Qatar spend on the World Cup? Our best guess is about $3.3 billion, with some numbers unavailable and variable (per The Sporting News).

Beer bottles and a soccer ball.

Amidst the multitude of controversy, protests, and social issues that arise during an event like the 2022 World Cup, perhaps none is so universally applicable as Qatar’s decision to ban alcohol sales at match venues. On Friday, November 18, FIFA announced that it would respect the host country’s decision for Qatar 2022 in a short statement.
