Press

  • SLUG Magazin
    "Even though The Workers Cup offers a bleak perspective about one of the world’s most celebrated "events, we see “unity in diversity” in these men. We see their drive to realize their dreams in spite of an undesirable context. We watch them as football players. You’ll see it, and you’ll feel it."
  • The Guardian
    "The Workers Cup fills a welcome niche in being an all too rare documentary about Qatar, with the added bonus of featuring charismatic characters spanning the world. It’s also a very successful film about modern day slavery which avoids pitying or patronising its subjects."
  • Screen Daily
    "A riveting underdog tale"
