In 2010, Qatar clinched the rights to host the World Cup and beat bids from the likes of the US, South Korea, Japan and Australia. It is the first ever middle eastern country to host the competition.

Ever since the announcement, football fans and the media have scrutinised the decision to host the World Cup in Qatar for many reasons. Not only for the country’s human rights record or the fact homosexuality is illegal, but for the many lives that have been lost in preparing Qatar for the competition.

But when will FIFA Uncovered be released and available to watch on Netflix and how can you watch it? Here is everything you need to know.
