The controversy between the Danish Football Association (DBU) and the International Football Federation (Fifa), due to issues related to human rights, had a new chapter this Wednesday (23).

After the veto by football’s top governing body on the use of ”One Love” armband (which expresses support for the LGBTQIA+ cause) by team captains during the World Cup 2022the president of the DBU, Lesper Moller, told The Athletic website that he is considering disaffiliating from FIFA.

The extreme attitude could be taken, according to the leader, if FIFA does not review its human rights policy. In the interview with the website, Moller says that the possibility has already been discussed with other federations in the Nordic region since August this year.

The DBU leaders have also already stated that they will not support a possible re-election attempt for the FIFA president, Gianni Infantino🇧🇷 Denmark would be one of the four nations against the reappointment of the representative to the position.

understand the controversy

Denmark is not the country that was involved in controversies in this World Cup, due to issues related to human rights. In addition to her, six other teams (England, Wales, Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany) intended to use the prop in support of the LGBTQIA+ cause, but withdrew after threats from FIFA🇧🇷

The ban on the “One Love” armband prompted a protest by the players of the German national football team, who posed for the official photo, before the game against Japan, this Wednesday (23), simulating having been gagged🇧🇷

FIFA bars messages considered political

FIFA’s justification for such punishments is that the armband would represent a political demonstration, something that is vetoed by the entity in its official competitions.

This argument was the same used by Fifa to block another initiative by Denmark, which intended to use, during training sessions in Qatar, T-shirts with messages in support of the human rights cause, in place of the sponsors’ brands.🇧🇷 In this case, the BDU had asked the highest football entity for authorization to carry out this action.

Even so, the country managed to take a form of protest to the World Cup in Qatar, with the shirt that erases the logo of the supplier of sports material Hummel and the shield of the national team🇧🇷 At the time the uniform was launched, the company made it clear that it was a protest against the host country, which is accused of violating the rights of workers, women and the LGBTQIA+ population.
