Qatar 2022 will be the best world cup ever-FIFA President

FIFA President Gianni Infantino has praised Qatar for improving workers’ rights.  Addressing the 70th FIFA Congress 2020 on Friday, Infantino also said that Qatar 2022 will be the best world cup ever.

“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.

Further emphasising the strength of the new FIFA as a partner for social change, President Infantino said, ‘As well as for our stakeholders, sponsors, and broadcast partners, we are also a solid partner for the UNODC [United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime], the World Health Organization, the World Food Programme, Unesco, UN Women, the Council of Europe, the African Union, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and the members of the G20.
