Organisers of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar have now revealed their official emblem for the tournament.

The design of the logo depicts the World Cup trophy. It also encompasses elements like a traditional woolen shawl, often worn in the Gulf in the winter.

The logo, according to the organisers, was inspired by the local and regional Arab landscapes and culture.

A statement issued by the world football governing body, Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), described the logo thus: "The logo is embodying the vision of an event that connects and engages the entire world.

"The swooping curves of the emblem represent the undulations of desert dunes and the unbroken loop depicts both the number eight – a reminder of the eight astonishing stadiums that will host matches – and the infinity symbol, reflecting the interconnected nature of the event."

The Qatar's Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy added: "The infinity sign symbolises the legacy of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, which will continue to inspire and accelerate development in Qatar, the region and globally, well after the tournament draws to an end."

World cup qualifiers will begin next year 2020, as five continents will be fighting to provide representatives among the 32 countries allowed for the tournament.
