‘Operator negligence’ blamed for fan debacle at last World Cup

The Fire Festival World Cup is off to a rough start.

Qatar’s Supreme Committee, which is in charge of hosting the 2022 World Cup, offered supporters who were promised accommodation in the official village, and did not receive it, full refunds, blaming “operator negligence”.

“We are aware that several fans have experienced delays in checking into selected fan village accommodation due to the negligence of the owner and operator,” A spokesman for the Supreme Committee told ESPN. “A portion of the units at these facilities, which are provided and managed by various private companies, did not meet the required standards advertised to the fans.

“Although these sites are operated by independent commercial companies, correcting these problems is a top priority for the Supreme Committee. Fans severely affected by this issue are being given full refunds as well as alternative accommodation which will be free for the duration of their stay.”
