Football teams versus Qatar human rights issues

Last February, a Guardian newspaper report highlighted that more than 6,500 migrant workers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have died in Qatar since it won the right to host the World Cup in 2011. Not all the workers were working on World Cup stadium but a large majority were working on construction and infrastructure projects.

Knowing these abuses of Qatar on migrant workers prompted high-profile national teams to protest the situation, leading to increased pressure on the World Cup hosts.

In the next few weeks, the Dutch FA wants to engage with fans and politicians to open a wider debate. Please support this campaign and support the change for the migrant workers.
