The biggest soccer competition in the world kicks off more than 8,000 miles east of Arizona on Monday, when the 2022 World Cup begins in Doha, Qatar.
The 2022 event is the first to feature the United States men’s team since the 2014 competition, with the U.S. facing off against Wales at Al Rayyan Stadium at noon on Monday.
From there, the U.S. team will have to knock off either England and/or Iran to advance out of group stage, which it did in 2014.
To celebrate the sport’s biggest stage, downtown Phoenix retail sportsbooks are hosting a series of promotional events for customers, centered around World Cup free bets and soccer-themed giveaways.
Here’s a breakdown of the deals Arizona sportsbooks are offering while the best in the world take the pitch in Qatar.
