Danish World Cup expedition to Qatar reveals false reality
The Danish football association, the DBU, has been one of the most vehement detractors of Qatar hosting the FIFA World Cup in
2022 due to numerous reports of human rights abuses of migrant workers building the new stadia and infrastructure required to host the event.
So to waylay such criticisms, the DBU and the Danish union confederation LO were part of a Nordic delegation invited by Qatar to inspect the conditions of the migrant workers toiling in the desert sun to get the nation ready for the world’s biggest sports event.
While the DBU, currently busy with its own in-house dilemma over its wage agreement with the national team, has yet to comment, LO has not pulled any punches.
