List of UK Films

The Workers Cup | Adam Sobel | 92 mins | 2017

The Workers Cup is a close and personal look inside Qatar’s labour camps, where the football World Cup is being built on the backs of a million-plus migrant workers. By day they sweat to build the World Cup stadium; while by night they compete in a ‘workers welfare’ football tournament, playing in the same stadiums that will one day host the world’s greatest players. We join one team of men from Nepal, India, Ghana, and Kenya whose only common ground is love for football.
