France Football says Qatar bought 2022 World Cup rights...

Qatar has bought the right to stage the 2022 World Cup through bribing the inner circle of FIFA’s executive committee members, an investigation has shown.

The results of the probe revealed Tuesday by France Football allegedly prove that in December 2010 Qatar bought the votes of FIFA executives and won the bid against such strong opponents as the US, South Korea, Japan and Australia.

France Football said the votes of Issa Hayatou and Jacques Anouma from the Confédération africaine de football (CAF) were purchased for $1.5 million each.

In 2010, Qatar spent $1.25 million on CAF’s congress to win the four votes of FIFA’s African executives. In addition, the then President Nicolas Sarkozy asked UEFA president Michel Platini to support Qatar’s bid for “geopolitical reasons.”

France Football alleged that President Sarkozy and Michel Platini then met with Qatar's Crown Prince Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani to discuss Qatar’s future investments into French football.

In 2011, Qatar Investment Authority purchased 70% of Paris Saint-Germain.

France Football said it is going to submit the evidence to FIFA. Source...
