Qatar: Majority of Norwegian Football Federation's board vote against boycotting 2022 World Cup over migrant workers' rights abuses

"Norway votes against boycott of Qatar World Cup over human rights," 21 June 2021

Norway’s Football Federation has comprehensively rejected a chance to boycott the Qatar World Cup.

An extraordinary general meeting of the NFF on Sunday, which lasted several hours, saw the federation hold off demands from some of Norway’s top clubs and a campaign by grassroot supporters to withdraw from next year’s tournament because of Qatar’s treatment of migrant workers.

In a vote, 368 delegates, made up from teams across the country and members of the NFF board, voted against a boycott, with just 121 in favour.
