World Cup Draw Format
The field of 32 nations is divided into four pots, with each pot based on the current FIFA Men’s World Rankings. Teams will then be drawn from those respective pots and assigned to groups A-H with each group consisting of four clubs. As the host nation, Qatar automatically finds itself in Pot 1 and is subsequently assigned to group A.
Groups may not contain multiple clubs from the same confederation, with the exception of UEFA. Each group will also feature at least one team from Europe, but no more than two.
