The reasons against a World Cup in Qatar just keep stacking up and this latest news is perhaps the most controversial of them all.

After reports surfaced earlier this week about the poor working conditions for construction workers in Qatar NBC News understands that as many as 4000 migrant workers could die as the tiny Arab nation kicks on with its construction efforts ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

Many outlets have cited Qatar’s “appalling labor abuses” and want more to be done about the huge influx of workers — between 500000 and 1 million – who will be brought in from Nepal India and other South Asian and African countries to complete infrastructure for the tournament the ITUC said. This vast number of overseas workers represents a workforce increase of 50 percent.

“More than 4000 workers risk losing their life over the next seven years as construction for World Cup facilities gets under way if no action is taken to give migrant workers’ rights” ITUC General Secretary Sharan Burrow said in a statement.

“The annual death toll among those working on building sites could rise to 600 a year -– almost a dozen a week –- unless the Doha government makes urgent reforms.”

Following this recent allegations and the reports being made public soccer’s world governing body FIFA is looking into the situation in Qatar. While many will argue that migrant workers carrying out their job in harmful conditions is something that comes with hosting a World Cup Olympic Games or other events it shouldn’t be that way. Not at all.
