Hrvatski Nogometni Savez (Croatian Football Federation)

Response from the Croatian Football Federation to questions on human rights risks and due diligence ahead of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022

Croatian Football Federation (HNS) is well aware of the challenges that Qatar has in the area of human rights, and that these cannot be underestimated...

We also underline our belief that hosting the World Cup, thus opening itself to the world, and different nations and cultures, is surely going to be useful for the human rights development in the county and the whole region.

HNS strongly believes in protection and promotion of human rights and those are the values we follow in all of our activities...

We did our research by delving into reports from FIFA and different NGOs in order to understand the situation in Qatar, and challenges when it comes to human rights...

Just like other national associations, HNS's only option is to choose a camp from the FIFA catalogue. As a FIFA member state, we respect such procedure and we strongly believe that FIFA, as a football governing body, takes strong care that all the hotels, and other companies and organisations that are contracted for the World Cup (including transportation, security etc.) meet all the necessary standards when it comes to securing human rights to its workers. At this point, HNS does not plan to contract any other company for its activities in Qatar - we're planning to use only FIFA services.
