Poll reveals 93 percent of fans want Qatar to be shown red card over 2022 World Cup hosting rights

LONDON: A new poll has revealed that a huge majority of football fans want to see Qatar stripped of the hosting rights for the 2022 World Cup.
The survey in British newspaper The Sunday Times, which is ongoing until Friday 15 March, had, as of 2.30 p.m. (GMT) on Monday, as much as 93 percent of the 5,704 fans who voted adamant that the Gulf state should be shown the red card and the tournament moved elsewhere.
This comes just a day after yet more allegations of corruption surrounding the controversial decision to award hosting rights for the 2022 showpiece to Qatar.
It has long been claimed that Qatar offered bribes to FIFA officials in its bid to host the 2022 World Cup — and this weekend The Sunday Times reported that Qatar allegedly offered football’s governing body as much as $880 million in secret payments at key stages in its efforts to host the 2022 World Cup.
Leaked files seen by The Sunday Times appear to show that Doha offered FIFA $400 million 21 days before the decision to hold the tournament in the tiny Gulf state was announced.
Executives from the Qatari state-run broadcaster Al Jazeera made the offer at the height of campaigning over the tournament, in a clear breach of FIFA’s own anti-bribery rules, the newspaper claimed.https://www.geezgo.com/sps/54886
