World Cup fixtures Australia time: Complete schedule to watch Qatar 2022 matches in Australian time zones

Another FIFA World Cup means several more early mornings for Australian football fans. 

With the 2022 tournament to be played in Qatar, kickoff times aren’t as bad as usual for Aussies hoping to watch most of the action. 

In fact, the Socceroos’ second match against Tunisia starts at the friendly time of 9 p.m. (AEDT). 

But with Qatar some 10,000 kilometres away from Australia, their time zone is radically different meaning some calculations are needed when it comes to kickoff times.

Qatar time zone compared to Australia time zones

Qatar is part of the GMT+3 time zone which puts it a few hours behind all of Australia’s different time zones. 

Those in Western Australia will get the shortest time adjustment of only five hours, while those on the east coast will get the biggest at eight.
