"An urgent rethink is needed to prevent labour abuse becoming the legacy of the 2022 World Cup", said James Lynch, a deputy director at Amnesty International.

According to the report, their partnership with a university to improve nutrition amongst workers is also a step towards ensuring their well-being.

An Indian construction labourer working on a 2022 Qatar World Cup football stadium has died of heart attack this month, tournament's organisers said on Thursday (18 May). The findings showed his death was due to natural causes, said Qatar's World Cup organising body, the Supreme Committee for Legacy and Delivery.

The organizers of World Cup 2022 in Qatar appear to be moving ahead of time as the first of the stadiums for the competition will officially be opened this Friday.

"It is therefore a fitting venue for the biggest match of Qatar's football calendar, the 2017 Emir Cup final between Al Rayyan and Al Sadd, and we look forward to welcoming fans into the magnificent remodelled stadium on Friday evening". He consequently passed away in the hospital as a result of a cardiac arrest.

In a March 2016 report called "The Ugly Side of the Beautiful Game: Exploitation of Migrant Workers on a Qatar 2022 site", Amnesty highlighted how migrant workers were exploited at the Khalifa Stadium.

Denying claims that heart attacks amongst their workers are a common occurrence, Qatar's government have said that they are in the process of implementing labour reforms and have hired a British consulting firm in an effort to increase transparency by assessing the working conditions in the stadium.

This renovated stadium features numerous innovative elements, such as the new cooling technology, which we promised during our bid.
