Faeser recently had in a ARD-Interview said that the awarding of major sporting events must be linked “to the observance of human rights, to sustainability principles”. Commenting on the decision to have Qatar host this year’s World Cup, the sports minister added: “There are criteria that have to be met and then it would be better that it wasn’t awarded to such countries. ” For the federal government, this is “a totally difficult award,” said the SPD politician.

On Monday, Faeser wants to travel to Qatar together with the human rights commissioner of the federal government, Luise Amtsberg, the sports policy spokesman of the parliamentary groups in the Bundestag and a delegation from the German Football Association led by President Bernd Neuendorf. According to her ministry, meetings with top politicians and representatives of civil society are planned.

The World Cup will take place in the Gulf State from November 20th. The Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, complained on Tuesday that the country was facing an “unprecedented campaign” that no host country had ever experienced.
