FA’s World Cup campaign ‘falls well short’, human rights group claim

The Football Association's attempts to take a stand on the issues that have plagued the build up to the World Cup in Qatar still "fall well short" of what is required, human rights groups have claimed.

The FA has joined nine other European federations, including the Football Association of Wales, in supporting a season-long OneLove campaign against discrimination...

The measures, announced on Wednesday, are not enough in the eyes of some groups though, who believe more still needs to be done with the tournament now just two months away...

"Coloured armbands are no substitute for clear demands for Fifa," human rights organisation Fair Square said. "While the English FA's support in principle for key issues is welcome, it falls well short on the detail and specificity that those affected by the World Cup need from participating nations."...

“It’s obviously welcome that the FA is actively seeking to promote inclusion and anti-discrimination, and it’s important that this is wholeheartedly extended to the World Cup," the organisation's head of priority campaigns, Felix Jakens, said on Wednesday.

“The FA’s pledge to support efforts to remedy abuses suffered by thousands of overseas workers in Qatar - including with a Migrant Workers’ Centre - could be significant, but we still need to see whether this is seriously taken up either by the Qatari authorities or by Fifa."
