Criticism of the World Cup in Qatar 2022

Qatar World Cup football 2022 has received a lot of criticism based on various issues. First and foremost, the human rights that prevail in the country. For example, it is forbidden to be gay by law.

In addition to that, the conditions for all construction workers who mainly come from other countries have been criticized as well. It is estimated that 6,500 workers died during the construction of arenas and other buildings related to the championship.

Lastly, it has also been criticized that the Qatar World Cup 2022 will be held where it is over 40 degrees in the summer. It will mainly result in dehydration or heatstroke, which could cause a huge health disadvantage for players. Luckily, this concern was heard by both FIFA and UEFA. As a result, the championship was moved to the winter season instead of the usual period of June / July.

For the 2022 World Cup dates, football will not be played in the summer as is usually done. Due to the high temperatures in Qatar, FIFA and UEFA chose to move the championship to November / December instead.
