Qatar’s draw for the FIFA World Cup 2022 has been done; all the groups, brackets, fixtures, and schedules are set. This article will check out Spain’s World Cup Fixtures 2022, match schedule, and venues for the group-stage matches. Then, we will try to figure out their fixtures and schedules for the Round of 16, Quarter-Final, Semi-Final, and Final, should they go all the way.

The FIFA World Cup 2022 will be held in Qatar, and the journey to lift the dream title will begin on Monday, 21 November 2022. We will find the FIFA World Cup 2022 Champions by Sunday night, 18 December 2022.

Since the World Cup winning campaign in 2010, Spain’s run in the tournament hasn’t been impressive. They were knocked out from the group stage in the 2014 World Cup following back-to-back defeats against Netherlands and Chile. The World Cup host Russia sent them home from the 2018 campaign from the Round of 16. Spain played in the semi-finals of the Euro 2020 (held in 2021), losing to Italy on penalties.

Luis Enrique’s men have qualified for the FIFA World Cup 2022 directly from Group B in the UEFA region. They will visit Qatar in November with the mission of winning their second World Cup title.
