The countdown to the Qatar 2022 World Cup started on Tuesday, as the official logo was projected onto big screens in Moscow, London and New York City.

The logo's unveiling drew thousands of people to Red Square, Leicester Square and Times Square. Meanwhile, the tournament's emblem was also unveiled in a number of locations worldwide, including Burj Doha and Katara Cultural Village Amphitheatre in host country Qatar's capital Doha.

According to organisers, the logo features the traditional woollen shawls worn in the Middle Eastern region during the winter months, paying tribute to the Arab culture. It appears like the number eight, a reference to the number of stadiums hosting games.

Qatar will host the FIFA World Cup in winter 2022, bringing the tournament to the Middle East for the first time.
