The international football governing body FIFA has sent a letter to all 32 World Cup teams, asking them to “focus on the football” in Qatar and not let the sports dragged into political battle.

Read the Full Letter from FIFA below :

Dear Presidents, dear General Secretaries,

The FIFA World Cup Qatar is now just around the corner and excitement about the world’s premier football festival is building globally as we count down the days to kick-off in Doha, on Sunday, 20 November 2022.

As one of the 32 participating teams, you carry the hopes and dreams of your home nation and all of its people on your shoulders.

FIFA would like to assure you that in Qatar everything has been prepared to ensure that every participating nation will have the very best chance of achieving success on football’s ultimate stage.

The eight state of the art stadiums, where the 64 matches of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™️ will be played, will provide the perfect platform for the world’s greatest sporting event.


So, please let’s now focus on the football! We know football does not live in a vacuum and we are equally aware that there are many challenges and difficulties of a political nature all around the world.

But please do not allow football to be dragged into every ideological or political battle that exists.

At FIFA, we try to respect all opinions and beliefs, without handing out moral lessons to the rest of the world. One of the great strengths of the world is indeed its very diversity, and if inclusion means anything, it means having respect for that diversity.

No one people or culture or nation is “better” than any other.

This principle is the very foundation stone of mutual respect and non-discrimination. And this is also one of the core values of football. So, please let’s all remember that and let football take centre stage.

Now, at the FIFA World Cup, we have the unique occasion and opportunity to welcome and embrace everyone, regardless of origin, background, religion, gender, sexual orientation or nationality. Let’s take that opportunity and unite the world through the universal language of football.

Now our focus is football because #NowIsAll.

We wish you every success and a great tournament ahead!

Gianni Infantino FIFA President Fatma Samoura FIFA Secretary General
