Despite the nation's flagrant human rights violations, Qatar was awarded the honor of hosting the World Cup in 2022, a choice that will haunt FIFA for years to come. Likely the result of widespread bribery and corruption, FIFA's decision costs more than a damaged reputation. The International Trade Union Confederation estimates that, by 2022, an unprecedented four thousand workers will have perished in Qatar due to poor working conditions created in preparation for the World Cup.
