FIFA helps evacuate refugees from Afghanistan

ZURICH, Switzerland, October 15, 2021 / APO Group / –

FIFA (www.FIFA.com) can confirm that following complex negotiations, it, with the support of Qatar, evacuated from Afghanistan nearly 100 members of the football family, including female players.

FIFA would like to express its sincere thanks to the Government of Qatar for its support in facilitating in-depth discussions and for ensuring the safe passage of these people, deemed to be most at risk, on a Qatar Airways charter flight from Kabul, in Afghanistan, in Doha, Qatar.

FIFA management has been coordinating closely with the Qatari government since August on the evacuation of the group and will continue to work closely on the safe evacuation of other members of the sporting family in the future.
