FIFA - Don't shame the game

How FIFA and the Qatar 2022 World Cup can be a catalyst for change.

What's wrong with working in Qatar?

Qatar is a government which takes no responsibility for workers. There are 1.4 million migrant workers in Qatar who have no rights.

  • 4000 workers could die before a ball is kicked in the 2022 World Cup. 
  • 1200 workers have died since the World Cup was awarded in 2010, on available data from just two countries.
FIFA delegates from nearly every country will take part in the FIFA Congress in Brazil on 11 June. 

Watch this video exposing the conditions in harsh labour camps for 1.4 million migrant workers in Qatar.

With your help and the help of millions of football fans around the world, the ITUC is calling on FIFA to rerun the vote for the Qatar 2022 World Cup unless Qatar respects workers' rights.

Qatar is a slave state. 1.4 million migrant workers are trapped in a broken system. Fundamental rights and freedoms do not exist for workers in Qatar whether for poor migrant workers or highly paid professional expatriates. Foreign workers are enslaved - owned by employers who hold the power of recruitment, total control over wages and conditions of employment, the authority to issue ID cards and the ability to refuse a change of employment or exit visa to leave the country. This is known as the kafala system.
