The Supreme Committee of the Qatar World Cup 2022 responded to the Hummel company’s statement. The brand protested against Qatar as the host country and the tournament on the Danish national team shirt.
Hummel sewed a black jersey for the Danish national team, which he called the color of mourning. The reason is the thousands of people who died during the preparation stage of the World Cup in Qatar.
However, the competition’s top committee, which mainly includes members of the Qatar royal family and those close to them, rejected the allegations.
“Since receiving the right to host the championship, the Supreme Committee has worked tirelessly with the Qatar government. We have implemented reforms in the labor sector and adopted laws that protect workers’ rights and guarantee the improvement of their lives.
Cooperation with FIFA and UEFA
As a result of cooperation with UEFA and FIFA, we established an active and transparent dialogue with the Danish Football Association. Conversely, the dialogue clearly showed the progress, problems, and traces we will leave after 2022.
Also, we completely reject Hummel’s statement that the tournament’s organization cost thousands of lives. Since day one, we have been protecting the health and safety of the 30,000 people working on the construction of the stadiums. The same applies to another 150,000 tournament employees and 40,000 hospitality workers.
States have a responsibility to do more to protect human rights worldwide than they are doing now. By the way, the same applies to Denmark. Many international human rights organizations have evaluated the activities of the High Committee as a model that has led to progress and improvement in people’s lives.
The reforms carried out in Qatar are considered a benchmark in the region. We call on the Danish Football Association to make public the information obtained from their work with the High Committee and to ensure that the said documents also reach Hummel,” the statement reads.
In November last year, the Danish Football Federation pledged to present critical messages at the 2022 World Cup. The Danish national team will play against France, Australia, and Tunisia in the World Cup group stage.
