After qualifying for the 2022 World Cup, Denmark’s football organization has announced a number of actions to highlight human rights concerns in Qatar.
The DBU said its two training-kit sponsors would make way for statements critical of Qatar, which is hosting the World Cup next year, and that it would limit its visits to the nation to prevent commercial activities that promote the World Cup hosts’ festivities.
“DBU has long been strongly critical of the World Cup in Qatar,” its chief executive officer, Jakob Jensen, said in a statement. “But now we are further intensifying our efforts and critical dialogue so that we take advantage of the fact that we have qualified to work for more change in the country.
“In addition, we have long drawn attention to the challenges facing Fifa and Qatar, and we will continue to do so.”
