Qatar’s migrant workers ‘celebrate’ their own World Cup

Migrant workers on the outskirts of Doha are finally able to enjoy the World Cup that they made possible. The lives lost and the impact they had on the event are not forgotten far from the city’s bright lights.

Qatar could not have staged the 2022 World Cup without the assistance of migrant workers, some of whom perished in the process. On Tuesday, when their national team played its final World Cup match against the Netherlands, the Asian Town Cricket Stadium on the outskirts of Doha was once again bustling with activity.

Shams from India, on the other hand, was among the lucky few. He has been living in Qatar for almost 13 years and has built something for himself; his family also lives here. He got hold of a ticket and spent the equivalent of €60 on it.

“We helped build this country,” said Shams. “Why shouldn’t we be allowed to experience and celebrate the World Cup just like the Qataris?” The sandwich stall he runs on the grounds is decorated in typical FIFA branding, but alcohol is not served. “Beer is not allowed,” whispers Shams behind the counter.

Nevertheless, these jobs have also been a source of distress for many of their families. This week, Hassan al-Thawadi, secretary-general of the Supreme Committee of Delivery and Legacy, the World Cup organizing committee, admitted that between 400 and 500 migrant workers had died in the lead-up to the competition.

The number of deaths between 2014 and 2020 was later revised to 414. However, media reports place the number of deaths at over 6,500, with many migrant workers forced to work under intolerable conditions.

Al-Thawadi stated that employment laws had been strengthened as a result of the World Cup’s scrutiny, which contributed to a shift in attitudes toward migrant laborers. Additionally, they have improved workplace health and safety measures to prevent fatalities.JAMB portal

However, human rights organizations have demanded that FIFA compensate affected workers and their families, the majority of whom are now unable to work due to debilitating health conditions. However, Qatar has rebuffed these efforts, stating that all owed wages have been paid out of its Workers Support and Insurance Fund.
