Any gay football fans going to the world cup???

Oh - did FIFA not have discussions on this when they awarded the WC to Qatar?



Fifa president Sepp Blatter has joked that gay fans travelling to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar should "refrain from any sexual activities".

Gay rights groups have criticised the decision to award the tournament to a country where homosexuality is illegal.

But Blatter, apparently joking, said: "I would say they [gay fans] should refrain from any sexual activities."

On a more serious note, Blatter added: "I'm sure when the World Cup will be in Qatar there will be no problems."

However, former NBA star John Amaechi, who revealed that he was gay in 2007, was highly critical of Blatter's comments.

BBC sports news correspondent James Pearce says Fifa will make no further comment following Blatter's remarks on attitudes to homosexuality in Qatar.

"Fifa says Blatter gave all the clarification required in his press conference," said Pearce.

The Islamic country of Qatar was the surprise winner of the race to host the 2022 World Cup, beating Australia, Japan, South Korea and the United States when the 22-man Fifa executive committee voted in their favour in Zurich on 2 December.

If sport can not serve to change society, even temporarily during the duration of an event like the World Cup that invites the world to participate, then it is little more than grown men chasing a ball

Former NBA star John Amaechi
Fifa has since come in for criticism after the decision to take the World Cup to the Middle East for the first time.

Concerns were raised about hosting the tournament during the summer months in a country where temperatures can reach 40C to 50C while current laws mean drinking alcohol in public is forbidden.

Gay groups are also worried about the acceptance of homosexual fans, with the Gay Football Supporter's Network saying at the time of Fifa's decision: "We strongly condemn Fifa's decision and will be leading a LGBT [Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender] boycott of all activities associated with World Cup 2022.

"We do not feel the World Cup should be held in any country that abuses and disregards the basic human rights of LGBT people."

But Blatter does not foresee any difficulties, saying: "You see in the Middle East the opening of this culture, it's another culture because it's another religion, but in football we have no boundaries.

"We open everything to everybody and I think there shall not be any discrimination against any human beings be it on this side or that side, be it left, right or whatever.

"If they want to watch a match somewhere in Qatar 2022, I'm sure they will be admitted to such matches."

Blatter says even if there are problems, there is still plenty of time to sort out any issues.

It's bad enough giving it to a country because they gave the biggest bribes (well lets be fair, it had nothing to do with footballing prowess), but a country without basic human rights!!!!! Stroll on!

Indeed.

Oh my.... Yes, I was concentrating on the gay side of things to much. I'd forgotten about the fact they will be issuing Burkhas at the airport to the hotties! X)

Is it too late for Blatter to admit he is corrupt and change it around?

lol....as if FIFA will allow that to happen, there will be a Fergie time equivalent in their last match.

They will in the hardest ever WC qualifying group when the draw is made, England will be in the second for all their bleating.

Any gay people wanting to stay in a b&b in Cookham Berkshire ENGLAND?

"A gay couple were turned away from a bed and breakfast by its Christian owner who claimed it was against her convictions for two men to share a bed.
When they arrived, Susanne Wilkinson and her husband Francis refused to allow them to stay."

At first glance, this does seem like a controversial comment, but it is actually a valid warning, if something is illegal in the country then it is wise to refrain from doing it.

Ah I see..... cloud the issue by saying you read of someone once who was homophobic in the UK.... Oh wait!

Yes, the hotel owners are very very bad people...... I expect you posted the hotel because its a recommendation?

Every cloud has a silver lining, at least Gary Neville won't be going.

just as well emile heskey will be too old by then..........

seriously,this is farcical-blatter is the king of corruption. whats the difference between this and a country not allowing black people into hotels/stadiums? its discrimination-you can say its the law,but laws should not be based on religion-its a muslim country,so if the muslims dont want to drink then they dont need to but why make it illegal for everyone? being gay isnt a CRIME ffs,no matter what your views are-another million dollars in blatters retirement fund methinks.

+1 didn't i read somewhere that they are now thinking of moving this world cup to the winter as it will be too hot to play it in the summer?

How can this happen, surely they should have thought of that before they took the bribe and awareded it to them

Of course it will be held in the summer, to eradicate any last chance of England possibly winning it.

I cant believe the winter part would be true, though in answer to your question, they don't think of anything apart from "how ****ing much? You're on"....
