Fifa issues warning to Qatar 2022 hotels over LGBTQ+ discrimination

Hotels on the official list of recommended accommodation for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar are required to welcome guests in a “non-discriminatory manner” or face termination of contracts, Fifa has said.

Homosexuality is illegal in Qatar, which will host the World Cup from 21 November to 18 December. Fifa said that, since being made aware of the report, it had been in touch with the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) and “will ensure that the hotels mentioned are once again made aware of our strict requirements in relation to welcoming guests in a non-discriminatory manner.
