Fifa in the spotlight over gay joke

Fifa were under the spotlight again this week because of President, Sepp Butler’s inappropriate comments with regards to Qatars strict rules about homosexual relationships.

When asked what he though about such matters, Sepp joked,  “I would say they should refrain from any sexual activities.”

Herman Ouseley, chairman of Kick It Out, a British campaign group for equality and inclusion in football, stated that he expected better from someone in Blatter’s position and that his joking about the matter showed a lack of leadership.

As well as the soaring heat during finals time, Qatar have other laws which may cause problems for those attending the World Cup 2022 such as no drinking in public.
