BTS, Nora Fatehi to Perform at the Opening Ceremony
The complete list of performers has not yet been disclosed by FIFA yet. The only two performers that have been evidently present at the Qatar World Cup are BTS and Nora Fatehi.
BTS is a Korean music band. They are expected to be the special performance for the opening performance. Nora Fatehi will be the first Indian/African performer to perform at the World Cup ceremony.
Changes Were Made to the Match Schedule
The opening ceremony was supposed to take place before Qatar's first game on Monday, which would have resulted in the uncommon circumstance of two games taking place before it. The first game in Qatar was then moved up by a day.
The 60,000-person Al Bayt Stadium, located 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of Doha, will host the opening ceremony. The Al Bayt Stadium is the most remote but also one of the largest and features a retractable roof. It was named and built after the tents used by nomads in the Gulf.
