beIN Sports, the official broadcaster of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 commemorates 500-days-to-go World Cup milestone as it continues to make preparations for broadcasting the world’s biggest football event.

The tournament is set to make history when it kicks off on 21 November 2022, for what will be the first FIFA World Cup to take place in the Middle East and Arab world.
