Money buys everything, even the organization of the 2022 World Cup!

On June 1st, The Sunday Times alleged that Mohamed Bin Hammam, the former Qatari vice president of FIFA, has paid millions to ensure support for Qatar’s bid to host the World Cup in 2022.


The decision to award this huge event to Qatar was largely condemned from the start. Situated in the Gulf, Qatar has extreme weather conditions. The summer heat may be unbearable for both, players and fans, and FIFA is taking into consideration the possibility of rescheduling 2022 World Cup to cooler season.

In addition, Qatar was accused of abusing the Nepalese nationals  involved in the World Cup preparations.
“The extent of the risks faced by migrant construction workers building the infrastructure for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has been laid bare by official documents revealing that 185 Nepalese men died last year alone.” Reported The Guardian.

One week ago, Qatar's decision to preserve its culture by imposing a special outfit on its visitors made me wonder if FIFA will regret Qatar’s nomination and consider a change.

Well yes, I would love to attend the World Cup in one of the Arab countries but I cannot turn my eyes away from the huge human costs. I already have my serious problems with the football game and the large amounts of money spent on it. I hope FIFA will not give me more reasons to question the integrity of this game.
I doubt Qatar can host the World Cup. Until now, it didn’t show its intention of  accepting  the culture and the diversity of  its visitors. Besides, it is violating the rights of its workers and paying money so the world would disregard its slips.

For the sake of this game, FIFA should preserve some dignity and call for an investigation to clarify all these buzzes. When rumors are raised about illegal bargains and enormous bribes, we should ask ourselves what Qatar is trying to hide.
