Investigations by Equidem between September 2020 and October 2022 documented significant labour and human rights violations at all eight FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 stadiums—Lusail Iconic Stadium in Lusail, Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Khalifa International Stadium and Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan and Stadium 974 and Al Thumama Stadium in Doha. Equidem carried out in-depth, confidential, one-toone interviews with 60 migrant workers employed across all eight FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 stadiums and spoke to a total of 982 workers employed at these sites.

The Qatar government did not respond, despite repeated requests for comment and frequent dialogue with Equidem over the last six years. Responses from FIFA and the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, and four companies are at Appendix of this report.
