The Football Blackout For Human Rights
Loud against Nazis
A campaign that activated Germany to switch off the Football World Cup Qatar 2022 and do something else instead. A strong sign for human rights.
In 2010, Qatar, a country that violates human rights severely, was chosen to host the FIFA World Cup 2022.
Dec 10, 2022 was the match day of the World Cup quarterfinals – the same date as the International Human Rights Day.
We asked everyone in Germany to switch off football and do something else instead. We collaborated with brands, NGOs and fan clubs which helped the campaign gain traction.
As more people boycotted the World Cup, we decided to extend “The Football Blackout for Human Rights” beyond its original end date of Dec 10, 2022. In the meantime, more and more NGOs and influencers came on board and fueled our mission further.
