Qatar 2022 will be remembered as the World Cup where abuse, corruption, and injustice were all normalised in our sport. 

Tell the FA to take a stand and support the #PayUpFIFA campaign for the families of migrant workers.
WHY THIS ISN'T FOOTBALL

Abuse, Corruption and Injustice

With a dreadful human rights record and a range of discriminatory laws against the LGBTQ+ community, Qatar should never have been a realistic choice to host a World Cup. Since their successful bid, things have only got worse, with reports of countless labour and human rights abuses that have led to thousands of unexplained deaths, serious injuries and loss of incomes.

WHY THE FA?

As the representatives for English football at the World Cup, the FA is in a powerful position to pressure FIFA. So far, they have only offered lip service to calls for compensation, but stopped short of calling for FIFA to create a remediation fund for the families of migrant workers that suffered death, injury or loss of income.

WHAT MUST FIFA DO?

FIFA is responsible for selecting host nations. The situation in Qatar was clear at the time - FIFA must shoulder the blame for the abuses faced in its name. This is why FIFA must:

1. Abide by its own human rights policy and create a remediation fund of $440 million for families of migrant workers who have lost their lives and livelihoods

2. Enhance and strictly implement its human rights criteria for future World Cups
