Qatar World Cup 2022: Sweden Football Association cancels training camp in Qatar over clubs' concerns about migrant workers’ rights

"Swedish FA drops training camp in Qatar over club concerns" 8 September 2021

Sweden’s football federation on Wednesday canceled plans for a training camp in Qatar in January after Swedish clubs expressed concern about the 2022 World Cup host’s human rights record.

The federation has held a January camp in Qatar since 2019 with a team featuring mainly players from the Swedish league, which is in the middle of its offseason at that time.

However, it said Swedish clubs had made “a unanimous assessment that the camp should not take place in Doha in the coming years.”
