The Ugly Side of the Beautiful Game: Exploitation of Migrant Workers on a Qatar 2022 World Cup Site

Amnesty International carried out research on the Khalifa Stadium refurbishment and the Aspire Zone between February 2015 and February 2016. Researchers visited Qatar three times and interviewed 234 men in total working for the companies responsible for the abuse. They visited the labour camps where the men were living, reviewed publically available documentation on the projects and met with the organization responsible for delivery of the World Cup in Qatar, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy. Researchers also engaged in correspondence with companies responsible for the Khalifa Stadium and Aspire Zone projects.
