Statement in response to France Football allegations
DOHA, QATAR: 19 June 2014: The recent baseless allegations by France Football follow a disturbing pattern in the media of publishing stories designed to tarnish the reputation of Qatar’s 2022 Bid Committee. This latest article is riddled with inaccuracies and falsehoods and is indicative of a blatant disregard for ethical reporting.
We reiterate that in every aspect of the 2018/2022 FIFA World Cup™ bidding process, we played by the rules and won fair and square.
This matter is now with our legal team who will explore all avenues to defend the integrity of our successful bid.
