FIFA has been engulfed in a bribery scandal, which could end in Russai and Qatar being stripped off hosting rights for World Cup 2018 and 2022.
However, 2022 FIFA World Cup that will be held in Qatar has already causes controversy, sparking fury across the world, following alarming reports of construction workers’ deaths.
More than 1,400 migrant workers have died building the infrastructure for the World Cup due to extreme weather and unsafe working conditions.
In order to create awareness and to shame the sponsors of the 2022 World Cup, activists around the world have started creating “anti-logos”.
People are getting creative and speaking out against brands such as Visa, Coke, McDonald’s and Sony with the hopes that they will withdraw sponsorship from the event.
