"I regret my comment, I didn't want to hurt anyone. We are against discrimination. I apologise for that comment," (Sepp) Blatter told a news conference ahead of Saturday's Club World Cup.Blatter later clarified his comment. What he meant to say was gay couples should not have sex on the field or in the stands during World Cup play. He added "and that goes for straight couples too."
Gay rights activists have reacted furiously after Blatter joked that gay football fans should "refrain" from sex during the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where homosexuality is illegal.
Question: How did a country as backward and uncivilized as Qatar with it's crazy and oppressive laws, get awarded the World Cup in the first place?
