The 2022 FIFA World Cup will take place in Qatar from 21 November to 18 December, and Monaco have issued a single stamp to celebrate the sporting occasion.
The unprecedented period in which the tournament will occur is linked to the climate of Qatar and the excessively hot weather prevailing there on the dates when the competition is usually held.
In order to combat the extreme temperatures, Qatar has developed an air conditioning system in the stadiums. Six new stadiums have been built, including one, Stade 974, made from recycled shipping containers, fully removable and reusable.
