Features of this FIFA World Cup Schedule Workbook:

Group & Knockout Stage Views

Group & Knock-out stage views - Fifa 2022 Excel tracker

Two separate tabs provide clear view of the schedules & results from Group Stage & Knock out stage of the football worldcup. They will auto-update whenever you refresh the workbook.

Fantasy View (set your own Group Stage Winners)

Pick your own winners for each of the 48 group stage matches and then see how that pans out at the knock-out stages (bracket view) with this cool Fantasy view. Switch between Fantasy and actual standings anytime.

Match Schedules:

The workbook also provides match schedules (dates & times as per local Qatar timezone) and quick access links to the match report.

Game schedules, date & times, match report links & fantasy option in one place.

Refreshable Scores & Group Standings:

The workbook is refreshable. If you hit CTRL ALT F5 (or Data ribbon > Refresh All), the group standings, points etc. will automatically update. The workbook uses Power Query in Excel to connect to Wikipedia page and fetch standings & results.

How is this built?

I plan to make a video explaining the process if time permits. But here is the quick run-down of the process:

  1. All the data comes from 2022 FIFA World Cup page on Wikipedia.
  2. I am using Power Query (Data Ribbon) to fetch the relevant tables from the Wikipedia page.
  3. Once the data is loaded to Excel, I created two different views, one for group stage and another for knock-out (elimination) stage.
  4. Here I am using either Dynamic Array formulas (such as FILTER & SORT) or good old INDEX MATCH formulas to get the correct values.
  5. In a separate tab, I have the schedule of all the 48 games. Here you can also specify the winners in a fantasy column.
  6. I used Data Validation to let you (users) select whether you want to view fantasy view or actual view.
  7. I applied conditional formatting to change color of the bracket view if fantasy results are shown.

Issues with the workbook? Read this:

As this workbook relies on the Wikipedia page, if something changes there, the workbook can break. I will check the file once every few days and fix any known problems. Comeback to this page and download latest version if possible.

If there are any issues with the file, please post a comment so I can fix them.

Alternative trackers:

Try the Spreadsheet tracker from Spreadsheet1.com as well.

    Thanks! but I'm having issue with this excel on the Bracket View. Something isn't working for me.

  3. Dan says:

    The Excel 365 version 1.1 shows an error on the Bracket View due to the knockout game, between Japan and Croatia, ended 1-1 after extra time and went on to penalties. The score is shown as 1-1 (a.e.t).

  4. Tony says:

    Great spreadsheet. However Last update just shows that game was drawn after extra time. OK but full info would be better. I realise that Croatia appears in next round as they won but no record of penalty shoot out. Traditional way of showing this would be 1(3)-1(1) or whatever. This info does appear on wiki page.

    • Chandoo says:

      If you apply word-wrap on the result cell, you should be able to see the penalty outcome too.
      Yeah, you are right. The logic needed to get that is a bit much.
      Good job Croatia
