There is expected to be a stream of live performances before the final showdown between Argentina and France in an epic clash at the iconic Lusail Stadium.

The lineup of artists includes world music superstars who have appeared on the official soundtrack of the FIFA World Cup, including Nigerian music superstar Davido, as well as Aisha, Izuna and Gims, Nora Fatehi, Balqees, Rahma Riad and Manal.

‘Hayya Hayya (Better Together)’ will be one of the featured songs during the ceremony and Nora Fatehi, an Indian actress/musician, is expected to perform a Hindi song during the ceremony.

The performance is expected to last around 30 minutes to give France and Argentina enough time to warm up and take down the stage before the final.

Reports also suggest that there could be surprise performances with designated fan zones that have already seen performances by different artists such as Nigerian superstars Kizz Daniel and Patoranking, as well as American superstars Lil John and Post Malone, among others, after the Opening ceremony was headed by BTS’s Jungkook.

The closing ceremony of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 takes place at the Lusail Iconic Stadium at 2:00 pm WAT.

Fans can watch the closing ceremony on Supersport Football on DSTV and GoTV, as well as NTA Sports 24.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup has so far exceeded expectations with surprises to remember and the closing ceremony will only set the stage for a memorable final as well.
