“Qatar abuses sport”

The World Cup in Qatar is a nuisance for many football fans. They protest again and again in the stadiums – here the fans of SV Werder Bremen (D).

In less than three weeks, the football World Cup will start in Qatar. A World Cup in a country that tramples on human rights. With games in the middle of the European winter. So far, there has been no euphoria in this country. SP National Councilor Matthias Aebischer (55), top sports parliamentarian in the Federal Palace, observes critically. The native of Bern chairs the parliamentary group Sport and plays in the FC National Council.

Blick: Mr. Aebischer, as a football fan, are you already looking forward to the start of the World Cup in Qatar?
Matthias Aebischer: A football World Cup is actually a highlight for me. But this time the anticipation is limited. With Qatar wallowing in the glamor of the games, a country that has no football culture, where it is far too hot for players and spectators and which got the bid thanks in part to corruption. Added to this is the intolerable human rights situation. The whole thing is not in the spirit of sport. A wrong decision.
