“While the coronavirus pandemic has delayed football tournaments globally, plans are being worked out to make sure that the qualifiers for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 go through all over the world and that we have a fantastic World Cup in Qatar in 2022,” Infantino said during a videoconference soon after the opening of the 70th FIFA Congress held online.
Infantino praised Qatar for implementing historic labor reforms setting minimum wages for workers.
‘This is a milestone, this is a game-changer, and it’s not me saying this — it’s the ILO [International Labour Organization], and it is partly thanks to the spotlight of hosting the FIFA World Cup. By the way in 2022, I give you an advanced warning, you will see in Qatar the best ever world cup. So get ready for that, said President Gianni Infantino.
