More than a decade since Qatar was selected as the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the games are nearly here.

It's one of the most eagerly anticipated World Cups in memory — as much for off-the-field reasons as those on it — and it begins Sunday in Qatar.

A total of 64 matches are scheduled, which, for those doing quick math, means more than one match will be played on the majority of days.

The first two weeks are jam-packed with the most matches, during group stage play. Pool play features games starting at five different times: 5 a.m., 8 a.m., 10 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. — all Eastern Standard Time. 

Every game of the World Cup will be on FOX and on FS1 with the championship game on Sunday, Dec. 18 at 10 a.m.

Thomas Magee's, Detroit

Thomas Magee's Sporting House and Whiskey Bar is just south of Eastern Market is going to be a hot spot for games the first two weeks, starting at 8 a.m.

Look, the 5 a.m. start is an early start time to have a cold one on tap - but those later games are the perfect time for breakfast and drinks.

Thomas Magee's is at 1408 E Fisher Fwy in Detroit and opens at 7:30 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 21.

DCFC Fieldhouse, Detroit

Similar to Thomas Magee's, DCFC Clubhouse will be showing every World Cup starting at 8 a.m. - this does not include games on Thanksgiving.

The fieldhouse will have food and drink specials during each game and offers WiFi plus a conference room for anyone who needs to "work from home" during the games.
