World Cup Warm-Up Soccer Tournament | Nov 18

What is “World Cup Warm-Up”?

The Intramural World Cup Warm-Up Soccer Tournament was inspired by the FIFA World Cup, the most prestigious soccer competition in the world. Every four years, the top 32 national teams compete in a month-long tournament. This year’s FIFA World Cup is being held in Qatar and starts on November 20th, 2022.

This event is a 3-on-3 mini field, mini net tournament. Just like the World Cup, we will have 32 teams split up into 8 groups of 4 teams. During the group stage (round robin style play) you will play every other team in your group to determine the top 2 that move onto the round of 16, where the winners keep advancing until a champion is named.
