Qatar hit the headlines in December 2010 when football’s world governing body FIFA
awarded it the right to host the 2022 men’s football World Cup, the first to be held in the
Middle East.
It was clear that a global event of this magnitude would mean Qatar would need to deploy
immense resources and rely on vast manpower to build new stadiums, roads, hotels and
other facilities and infrastructure to cater for football fans from across the globe.
With migrant workers making up more than 90% of the country’s workforce, it was clear
that the weight of delivering these projects would rest overwhelmingly on the shoulders of
all those who travelled to Qatar in the hope of securing a better livelihood.

TAKE ACTION
The road to #Qatar2022 will
soon reach its destination.
