The Workers Cup

“The Workers Cup” by Adam Sobel

Tuesday 23 January, 19:00 (Cinéma Galeries)

Runtime: 92′

In 2022, Qatar will host the biggest sporting event in the world, the FIFA World Cup. But right now, far away from the bright lights, star athletes and adoring fans, the tournament is being built on the backs of 1.6 million migrant workers. The Workers Cup is a feature-length documentary giving voice to the men who are labouring to build sport’s grandest stage.
