ABSTRACT
AMID renewed calls for FIFA to overturn the controversial decision to hand the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, new research by the Mail on Sunday has shown just how much the oil-rich Middle East state spent on deals — including legitimate trade deals — in the course of lobbying in the run-up to the 2010 vote. Qatar won the final round of voting 14-8 against the USA in the executive committee ballot. The MOS analysis suggests that Qatar spent an astonishing £17.2 billion directly and indirectly on the way to victory.
