The original plan was for the opening ceremony to be held before Qatar’s first game on Monday, which would have created the unusual situation of two games being held before it. Qatar’s opening match was then brought forward by a day.
The opening ceremony will be at the 60,000-capacity Al Bayt Stadium, 40 km (25 miles) north of Doha. Although FIFA has yet to announce a full list of performers for the opening ceremony, BTS member Jungkook will be gracing the stage with his track titled “Dreamers” at the ceremony. Others named as possible performers at the opening ceremony include the Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams and Nora Fatehi, according to The Telegraph.
