We inquired if gay followers will be safe at the Football World Cup in Qatar, Host said

Almost 12 years ago, Qatar stunned the world, winning the right to host the world’s biggest football tournament Football World Cup.

Then FIFA President Sepp Blatter announced it would become the first Middle Eastern nation to stage the tournament in 2022, with Australia among those overlooked. Australia received just one vote after spending more than million on its bid. But there was a problem; Qatar's record on human rights.

LGBTIQ+ rights

Homosexual activity is a criminal offence in Qatar and is punishable with a jail sentence even death in some circumstances. But the organizing committee for this year's FIFA World Cup in Qatar has told SBS News LGBTIQ+ fans won't face any discrimination during the tournament.

Fatma Al-Nuaimi, the Executive Director of Communications for the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy of the tournament, says Qatar has hosted around 600 international events since being awarded hosting rights and claims there hasn’t been one incident of discrimination.

“We keep assuring everyone that everyone is welcome, Ms Al-Nuaimi told SBS News. Everyone will be able to come, enjoy the games and support their teams, regardless of their background, religion or gender.”

Fans though aren't so sure. For the second Football World Cup in succession, James Cardall has zero interest in attending. Mr Cardall, who is the president of Pride Football Australia, says it’s "disgraceful" that FIFA has awarded consecutive editions of the tournament to countries Russia and Qatar that he believes have "dire and poor" opinions of the LGBTIQ+ community.

“Considering they brand football as the global game, it's quite hypocritical,” he said.

It's expected more than a million people will travel to Qatar for this year's Football World Cup. But for Pride Football Australia's 500 members, it's a trip not one of them will be making.

“We don't feel included, we actually feel excluded from the tournament itself,” Mr Cardall supposed.

“I think it's a pretty poor showing from FIFA and Qatar as well.”

FIFA, the governing body for world football, remains confident the promises of inclusion will be upheld, adding that supporters will be free to fly rainbow flags at matches. We've received the necessary guarantees, we are training all the officials, we are working hand in hand with the government, with the police authorities, everyone will be welcome, FIFA President Gianni Infantino told the Qatar Economic Forum in late June.

Nasser Al-Khori, who leads Generation Amazing, a social and human legacy initiative for the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy of the tournament, said Qatar was more progressive than its neighbors but hopes all visitors will respect Qatari culture and traditions.  We want to show to the world that we are sort of a progressive state in the region, Mr. Al-Khori told SBS News. We are modernizing, but in our own sort of way, sticking to our identity, our culture, our roots.

The messaging around culture follows that of the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani. When asked a question earlier this year about the rights of visitors from the LGBTIQ+ community, he supposed: We welcome everybody, but we also expect and want people to respect our culture.

But writing in a Canadian newspaper last month, Rasha Younes, a researcher with Human Rights Watch's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Rights Program, said: "Qatar’s steady reference to “culture” to deny LGBT people’s rights 

"Culture' should not be used as a cover for discourse, practices, and legislation that have effectively excluded content related to sexual orientation and gender identity from the public sphere."

Worker rights in Football World Cup

When Qatar was awarded hosting rights in 2010, the nation had a population of just 1.85 million people. It has since grown to almost 3 million. The total land size of the gulf nation is only 11,751 square kilometers, making it smaller than Sydney. Hosting the Football World Cup was every bit the ground-breaking opportunity for Qatar the first in the Arab world to do so. It required significant development with a workforce to match.

Thousands of migrants have been drafted in to complete the work in time but according to human rights groups, many have been killed on the job. Amnesty International Australia Researcher Nikita White says it’s unclear exactly how many workers have died building infrastructure related to the Football World Cup.
