Six countries demand Fifa strips 'base of terrorism' Qatar of 2022 World Cup

Six countries demand Fifa strips 'base of terrorism' Qatar of 2022 World Cup | 15 July 2017 | The six Arab countries who last month cut ties with Qatar are reported to have written to world soccer's governing body Fifa to demand it be stripped of hosting the 2022 World Cup because they consider the Gulf state to be a "base of terrorism". Fifa president Gianni Infantino told Swiss website The Local that Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mauritania, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt had collectively written to Fifa asking it to remove Qatar as hosts under Article 85 of the Fifa Code, which allows for such action in the case of emergency. "The countries warned Fifa of the risks threatening fan and player security in a country that is 'the base and the castle of terrorism'," The Local quoted Infantino as saying.
