The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has rejected each and every allegation put forward by the Sunday Times.

In a recent report, Sunday Times claims that a "black operations" campaign was allegedly conducted by the Qatar 2022 bid team in an attempt to discredit and sabotage their rivals in the race for the World Cup.

However, Qatar hits back at allegations to sabotage rivals in race for FIFA World Cup 2022 as the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy said in a statement : “We have been thoroughly investigated and have been forthcoming with all information related to our bid, including the official investigation led by US attorney Michael Garcia. We have strictly adhered to all FIFA’s rules and regulations for the 2018/2022 World Cup bidding process."

Qatar won the bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and has become the first ever Middle Eastern country to host the World Cup soccer. The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy is making sure to successfully deliver all infrastructure, planning as well as operations required for Qatar to host an amazing and historic FIFA World Cup.

It is worth noting that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain had imposed a blockade on Qatar and cut off all kinds of ties accusing the country of supporting terrorism. However, they also tried to put pressure on Qatar’s hosting the 2022 World Cup, demanding that if they give up the tournament, they would lift their sanctions.
