Qatar was announced to host in 2010

The most controversial World Cup ever

This World Cup held in Doha Qatar is also being called most controversial World Cup ever. How did Qatar get to host this World Cup how were stadium workers treated & is it the right place for the World Cup? Such questions are constantly being raised. The treatment of 30,000 migrant workers associated with project has drawn considerable criticism.

In February 2021 Guardian newspaper reported that since Qatar won its bid for the World Cup 6,500 migrant workers from India Pakistan Bangladesh Nepal and Sri Lanka have died in Qatar. are Labor rights group Fair Square says many of dead were working on World Cup infrastructure projects.

However Qatari government says these figures are overstated as they include thousands of foreigners who have-died after living & working in Qatar for years.

According to the government many of them were not working in construction sector. Qatar says 37 people have died in the construction of World Cup stadiums between 2014 and 2020. 34 of these deaths were not due to work.

Why is the Qatar World Cup being held in winter?

World Cup tournament is usually held in June & July but the average temperature in Qatar during these months of  year is around 41 °C which can reach 50 °C in certain conditions. One cannot imagine playing 90 minutes in such dangerous heat & conditions.

During the bidding process Qatar promised to use advanced air conditioning technology. It is said that this will keep areas like stadiums & training pitches cool by up to 23 degrees Celsius. However in 2015 FIFA decided that tournament will be held in winter.

World Cup starts from November 21 & the final is scheduled to be played on December 18. This means that it will come right in the middle of club football season in many countries which will cause them to face disruption.

For example English Premier League will not play any matches between November 13 & December 26. & to make up for this, the 2022/2023 season will start a week earlier & finish a week later than usual.
