United kingdom drinks large Brewdog has introduced an ad marketing campaign criticising the Qatar 2022 Entire world Cup.

Huge billboard adverts have appeared on structures in what the firm has billed as “anti-sponsorship” of the controversial event.

Qatar was awarded the legal rights to hosting the world’s most viewed sports activities celebration in 2010.

On the other hand, the oil-loaded nation was criticised before long immediately after, when claims of bribery and corruption in the bidding course of action surfaced.

Qatar has also confronted developing criticism around its human legal rights history and the treatment method of migrant personnel who have arrived in the state to construct the stadiums desired for the Globe Cup.

In a assertion, Brewdog stated: “This just isn’t a Planet Cup, it really is a World F*cup – and we are kicking off.

“Football’s been dragged via the mud, just before a single ball’s been kicked. Let’s be trustworthy: Qatar won it by bribery. On an industrial scale.

“Soccer is intended to be for absolutely everyone. But in Qatar, homosexuality is unlawful, flogging is an accepted kind of punishment, and it is Okay for 6,500 employees to die setting up your stadiums.

“Which is why we’re kicking off. To be crystal clear we enjoy football, we just don’t appreciate corruption, abuse and dying.”

As section of the marketing campaign, Brewdog has pledged that all the profits from 1 of its beers bought all through the match will go to “combat human legal rights abuse”.
