Six countries have demanded FIFA strip Qatar of the 2022 World Cup.

The nations, who have cut diplomatic ties with the Gulf state last month, also threatened a boycott.

They are: Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mauritania, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt.

Their request was confirmed by FIFA president, Gianni Infantino, according to Reuters.

“The countries warned FIFA of the risks threatening fan and player security in a country that is ‘the base and the castle of terrorism,’” Infantino is quoted as saying.

Infantino said the the countries cited Article 85 of the FIFA Code, that allows changes to be made to World Cup hosts in case of emergency.

The world football governing body said in June amid the diplomatic crisis, that it remains in “regular contact with Qatar.”
