Sport & Rights Alliance Raises Concerns over FIFA’s Surprise Selection of UAE to Host 2021 Club World Cup

Since 2017, FIFA has made important progress in terms of its human rights responsibilities, including adopting policies that ensure a human rights risk assessment for host countries and holding a transparent stakeholder consultation under FIFA’s Statutes, Human Rights Policy and the reformed Bidding Process for future hosts.

Apparently, FIFA granted this tournament without undertaking the comprehensive human rights assessment and stakeholder consultation set out under the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) and FIFA’s own Human Rights Policy.

The Sport & Rights Alliance responded on Twitter to share its questions and concerns about the bidding and decision-making processes used to make this critical selection...

The news comes only two years after FIFA chose another country known for its government’s human rights violations to host the same tournament. In 2019, the global football organization announced it had selected China for the 2021 Club World Cup.
