How do LGBTQ+ football fans feel about the Qatar World Cup?

Live on BBC TV, BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio 5 Live, BBC Radio Wales, BBC Radio Cymru, BBC Sounds and the BBC Sport website and app.

England, Wales and other European nations will not wear the OneLove armband at the World Cup in Qatar because of the threat of players getting yellow cards.

The captains, including Englands Harry Kane and Gareth Bale of Wales, had planned to wear the armband during matches to promote diversity and inclusion.

A joint statement from seven football associations said they could not put their players in a position where they could face sporting sanctions.

We are very frustrated by the Fifa decision, which we believe is unprecedented, the statement read.

The governing bodies - England, Wales, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland - said they had written to Fifa in September informing them about the OneLove armband but not received a response.

Fifa has been very clear that it will impose sporting sanctions if our captains wear the armbands on the field of play, the statement added.

We were prepared to pay fines that would normally apply to breaches of kit regulations and had a strong commitment to wearing the armband.

However, we cannot put our players in the situation where they might be booked, or even forced to leave the field of play.

In response, Fifa hasbrought forward its own No Discrimination campaign, which had been due to start from the quarter-finals. Captains will now be permitted to wear a No Discrimination armband for the duration of the tournament.

Kane wore the Fifa armband asEnglandbegan their World Cup campaign with a6-2 win over Iranon Monday, with the Three Lions also taking the knee before kick-off.

Were disappointed, Kane said about not being able to wear the OneLove armband. We wanted to wear it, that decision was taken out of my hands. I turned up to the stadium with the armband that I wore and I was told I had to wear that.

Look, its out of our control as players. Im sure the FA and Fifa will continue those discussions but most importantly we focused on the game and got a great result.

Youve seen over the last five years weve made a stand as a squad and well continue to do that as much as we can. We took the knee as well but sometimes these decisions arent up to us and thats the bottom line.

Attacking midfielder Jack Grealish scored for England in the win against Iran and told ITV it was a bit stupid that Kane could not wear the OneLove armband.

He added: We are with them [LGBTQ+ community], we wish they were here with us.

Meanwhile, Irans playersdeclined to sing the national anthembefore the match in an apparent expression of support for anti-government protests in their home country.

Human rights activists have said more than 400 anti-government protesters have been killed in Iran and 16,800 others arrested in a crackdown by security forces in recent months.

Why is the Qatar 2022 World Cup controversial?

BBC pundit Alex Scott wore the OneLove armband before Englands World Cup opener against Iran

It was announced in September that the captains of 10 European nations - England, Wales, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the Netherlands -would wear a OneLove armbandat Nations League games and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Norway and Sweden are not at the World Cup, while France captain Hugo Lloris said he wouldnot wear the armbandbecause he wanted to show respect to Qatar.

The Netherlands began the OneLove campaign before Euro 2020 to promote diversity and inclusion, and as a message against discrimination.

Same-sex relationships and the promotion of same-sex relationships are criminalised in Qatar.

On Saturday,Fifa president Gianni Infantino accused the West of hypocrisyin its reporting about Qatars human rights record.

In a statement, the Dutch FA said it was abandoning the plan to wear the armband with a heavy heart following Fifas decision to impose sanctions.

This goes against the spirit of our sport that connects millions of people, it added. Together with the other countries involved, we will take a critical look at our relationship with Fifa in the coming period.

Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal,whose side beat Senegal 2-0on Monday, said: One thing is clear - we are not going to wear the armband if were getting a yellow card.

I think we need to question whether this a correct action on the part of Fifa and you can answer that question.

The Football Association of Wales said: Were frustrated. Were disappointed. But we remain with the belief that football is for everyone and stand with our LGBTQ+ members of the Welsh football family.

Fifas warning that it would impose sanctions on any captain who wore a OneLove armband has been criticised, withthe Football Supporters Associationexternal-linksaying it felt betrayed by footballs world governing body.

Today we feel contempt for an organisation that has shown its true values by giving the yellow card to players and the red card to tolerance, it added in a statement.

Never again should a World Cup be handed out solely on the basis of money and infrastructure.

No country which falls short on LGBT+ rights, womens rights, workers rights, or any other universal human right, should be given the honour of hosting a World Cup.

3LionsPride, an England fan group for LGBTQ+ supporters, saidexternal-linkthe decision was more than disappointing, adding that captains basic rights to freedom of speech and expression were being crushed by Fifa.

The Rainbow Wall, which represents Welsh LGBTQ+ fans, said it had no faith in Fifa following the decision.

In a joint statement with 3LionsPride, it said: This abuse of power by those who have chosen to remain silent for so long is a gross betrayal of trust.

The decision was also condemned by anti-discrimination campaign group Kick It Out for continuing to highlight Fifas failure to address concerns of both human rights groups and the LGBTQ+ community in the build-up to this tournament.

Players and fans should not have had to bear the burden of Fifas mistakes and we will continue to support Gareth Southgate, and his team, as they look to explore other ways to support inclusion in football, the statement added.

Former England captain Alan Shearer told BBC Radio 5 Live the timing of the decision was not fair on players, adding he would have defied Fifa and worn the armband anyway.

I would obviously have spoken to the manager and my preference would have been to say: Ill wear the armband and Ill take the hit, he said.

That would pose a bigger question and a bigger problem for Fifa than them not wearing it - and thats what I would do, if I could.

The OneLove armband promotes diversity and inclusion - and is a symbol aimed at standing up to discrimination

Jack Murley, presenter of the BBCs LGBT Sport Podcast, speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live

If youre Harry Kane and you can risk a booking and miss the World Cup final by wearing this armband, you can see why he wouldnt necessarily do it. The flip side to that is whats the point of a protest if it doesnt actually make a splash; if there are no stakes to it?

Its not as if players do not have power and influence in this situation, but its a difficult one to ask them to exert on the biggest stage of their lives.

The question really should be why have they been put in this situation on the day of the game? Fifa has known for months and months they wanted to wear this armband. Why are we only having this conversation now?

Weve now got to a point where Fifa has spent years saying this World Cup is for everyone. Its now essentially said that if you wear an armband symbolising that its OK to be gay, youll get booked.

Fifa has a lot of explaining to do about how those two things marry up. There will be a lot of LGBTQ+ people who are not only entirely unsurprised by this decision, but also absolutely furious.

It feels like a gut punch that a symbol for who you are being OK can get you booked at footballs greatest tournament. That is an extraordinary place to arrive at in 2022.
