>Gay football fans ‘should refrain from any sexual activities" at Qatar 2022

>You could be mistaken for thinking that FIFA President Sepp Platter had been replace by under pressure Italian President Silvio Berlusconi. He announced at a press conference that gay football fans wishing to attend the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in should “refrain from any sexual activities”. Homosexuality is illegal in the Islamic state that was controversially awarded the tournament.

Football has tried to do a lot to make it more friendly to everyone, but comments like this just show how out of touch the game’s global leadership still is. Still, at least FIFA’s corporate sponsors get to get into the Middle East, even if their gay customers won’t.

  1. >i don't have high expectations but I'd like to think the FA will boycott the tournament if there's no permanent shift in the law by 2022. This should be treated exactly the same way apartheid was.
