Russians tell gay World Cup fans: 'You'll be hunted down and stabbed' [View all]

Gay football fans have been warned that they will be hunted down and attacked if they go to the World Cup.

Last week, LGBT football fans were “strongly” warned to not “publicly display sexuality” at the World Cup. 

The Football Supporters’ Federation said that queer fans should not hold hands or be affectionate towards their partner in public, to ensure their safety.


White told PinkNews that FIFA was “at least pushing the Russian authorities on investigating the threats and they now have, alongside UEFA, sexual orientation and gender identity rights as part of the bidding process.

“But it is ridiculous that they gave the World Cup to Russia and Qatar.”

The 2022 World Cup will be in Qatar, where homosexuality is illegal.
