Qatar govt is giving FIFA World Cup 2022 tickets for free… but there’s a catch!

Qatar is hosting the FIFA World Cup this year, and it’s a major deal. The spectacle has become more about foreign politics than athletics. According to reports, Doha officials are now attempting to fill the stadium with pro-government football fans. How are they accomplishing this? By bribing the audience.

What is going on?

According to sources, the Qatari government is reaching out to well-known football fan clubs from various participating countries and providing them free tickets to the tournament, as well as transport, lodging, food, and a few other expenses.

Isn’t it a football fan’s dream come true? You won’t have to spend a dime to enjoy the most luxury version of your favourite game. But why would Doha show such extreme kindness?

Where’s the catch?

It’s always a game of give and take. Those who accept the invitations must practically and metaphorically become cheerleaders for the Qatari regime.

What are the terms and conditions?

Fans who accept the invitation are apparently required to sing what they are told, speak what they are told, and perform in a way that supports the Qatari government.

Organiser’s document:

  • They are NOT PERMITTED to criticise the government in any way.
  • They will also be expected to report online criticism of the government, even taking screenshots and sending them to Qatari tournament organisers.
  • We are not asking you to be a mouthpiece for Qatar, but it would be inappropriate for you to trash Qatar, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy…or the FIFA World Cup Qatar.

You undertake to report any disrespectful, derogatory, or abusive remarks to the SC and, if feasible, to take a screenshot of those comments and then delete them as soon as possible. – Organiser’s document.

  • The supporters are required to attend the opening ceremony, but reports indicate that many will stay far longer.

How are football fans reacting to the seemingly impossible offer?

According to rumours, Qatar has already recruited 450 football enthusiasts from around the world from various fan organisations to serve as cheerleaders.

However, there were other supporters who declined the offer.

They are purchasing fans. It’s their strategy. We have crossed a line. It’s ludicrous. This is not the image we want to project of our followers. Money alone isn’t everything.

Despite the dish’s appealing aspect, I opted to stick to my ideals.

What does the Qatari government have to say?

The organising committee has stated that the reports are “absolutely false.”

According to recent media conjecture, this programme is an illegal plan that pays visitor fans in exchange for coordinated marketing of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. This assertion is completely untrue.

-The Qatari government

Why would the Qatari government act in this manner?

This FIFA World Cup, a lot is riding on Doha’s leadership.

  • Qatari government has been accused of bribing FIFA officials in order to host the event in their country.
  • Doha has been accused of leveraging the high-profile international event to boost its worldwide brand while continuing to tolerate human rights violations on its territory.
  • According to reports, the country evicted numerous migrant workers residing near the World Cup arena to make room for tourist accommodations, forcing the workers to live on the streets.
  • There is also concern that the attendance will be lower than in previous World Cup competitions.

Given the prices, remoteness, and discomfort surrounding this World Cup, the fans will be different than in a traditional World Cup. As a result, we must endeavour to bring them into the stadiums. Color is needed at the opening ceremony, with supporters wearing team shirts. Very well shot. It has the potential to have an influence.
