Coupe du monde au Qatar: la Fifa “a fait de fausses déclarations” sur un tournoi neutre en carbone, selon le régulateur suisse

La Fifa a fait de fausses déclarations sur la réduction de l’impact environnemental de la Coupe du monde 2022 au Qatar, a déclaré un régulateur suisse.

L’instance dirigeante mondiale du football revendiquélien externe le tournoi serait la première “Coupe du monde entièrement neutre en carbone”.

Le régulateur de la publicité, la Commission suisse pour la loyauté (SLK), a confirmé les plaintes de cinq pays européens.

“La Fifa n’a pas été en mesure de fournir la preuve que les affirmations étaient exactes pendant la procédure”, a déclaré le SLK.

Dans sa décision, qui n’est pas juridiquement contraignante, la SLK a ajouté : “La SLK a conseillé à la Fifa de s’abstenir de faire des allégations non fondées à l’avenir. En particulier l’affirmation selon laquelle la Coupe du Monde de la FIFA 2022 au Qatar était climatiquement ou carbone neutre.”

La Fifa, basée à Zurich, a déclaré que la Coupe du monde avait une empreinte de 3,6 millions de tonnes de déchets carbone équivalents, qui a été compensée par un certain nombre d’initiatives, telles que la compensation des émissions de vol de chaque détenteur de billet, ainsi que plusieurs autres programmes tels que la mobilité électrique pour le public. transport autour du tournoi.

Le Royaume-Uni, la Suisse, la France, la Belgique et les Pays-Bas ont tous contesté la déclaration, le SLK confirmant chaque plainte “à la suite d’un processus ardu et complexe”.

En novembre, BBC Sport a rapporté comment les écologistes ont qualifié la déclaration de neutralité carbone de la Fifa de “dangereuse et trompeuse” et ont averti que le tournoi pourrait avoir une empreinte carbone trois fois supérieure à celle indiquée.

Les plaintes étaient centrées sur l’argument selon lequel l’affirmation de la Fifa d’une Coupe du monde neutre en carbone est fausse en raison d’une sous-estimation des émissions et d’un manque de crédibilité dans ses compensations, ce qui, selon les militants, signifie que les consommateurs et les fans sont induits en erreur.

“Le SLK a conclu qu’il ne faut pas prétendre que les objectifs de durabilité ont été atteints s’il n’existe pas de méthodes définitives et généralement acceptées pour mesurer la durabilité ou s’assurer que des mesures de durabilité ont été mises en œuvre”, a ajouté le régulateur.

Il a déclaré qu’il ne pouvait pas juger si l’estimation par la Fifa des déchets de carbone était “réaliste ou exacte”.

“En outre, l’instance du football a promis à plusieurs reprises de compenser intégralement les émissions qui seront définitivement calculées à une date ultérieure”, a-t-il ajouté.

“Cependant, il n’a pas prouvé que les émissions indiquées dans le rapport ex ante avaient été compensées et n’a pas établi de plan pour définir comment il compensera davantage les émissions.”

Andrew Simms, directeur du groupe environnemental britannique New Weather Institute – l’organisation qui a déposé la plainte du Royaume-Uni – a déclaré qu’il fallait faire davantage pour éliminer l’écoblanchiment.

L’écoblanchiment consiste à tromper le public en lui faisant croire que les produits, les objectifs et les politiques d’une organisation sont respectueux de l’environnement.

“La Fifa a été découverte pour avoir utilisé de fausses allégations vertes comme substitut à une véritable action climatique”, a déclaré Simms.

“Les régulateurs prennent lentement conscience de l’ampleur du problème et de la menace qu’il représente en semant la confusion dans les véritables efforts de lutte contre le changement climatique. Les gros pollueurs se rendent compte qu’ils sont en sursis.

“Mais pour protéger les personnes et la nature, il y a un besoin urgent d’une réglementation plus robuste et proactive pour éradiquer l’écoblanchiment et réduire les dommages causés par la publicité à haute teneur en carbone.

“Le sport continue d’être utilisé comme un panneau d’affichage géant par certains des plus grands coupables du climat pour promouvoir des produits et des modes de vie polluants, menaçant l’avenir des athlètes, des fans et du sport lui-même.

“Il est temps que le sport et ses instances dirigeantes comme la Fifa utilisent leur pouvoir et leur position pour accélérer la transition bas carbone, au lieu de la retarder et d’induire le public en erreur dans le processus.”

La Fifa n’a pas encore répondu aux critiques.

Euro 2024: Record-breaking start to tournament and 16 goals scored in four games

Published

on

Only four games have been played at Euro 2024, but it has been an exhilarating start to the tournament.

After Germany set the tone by thrashing Scotland on Friday, records have tumbled, with a 16-year-old starring and goals going in left, right and centre.

It was no surprise, therefore, that Gary Lineker began the half-time BBC coverage of Italy’s win over Albania by praising the first two days of action.

There are three games on Sunday, including England’s opening match against Serbia at 20:00 BST, which will be shown live on BBC One.

Kevin Campbell tributes show he was ‘amazing character’ – England boss Gareth Southgate

Published

on

Millwall goalkeeper and Montenegro international Matija Sarkic, who was 26, has also died.

Southgate said: “I know that some of our players and staff actually played and worked with Matija as well so both pieces of news were received with shock and great sadness.

“Those boys that played with him are feeling that even more.”

Campbell’s son Tyrese – a striker who has spent the past seven seasons at Championship side Stoke City – called the pain of losing his dad as “indescribable”.

“He was the life and soul of every party and room he blessed, a one-in-a-million person that was loved by everyone,” the 24-year-old added.

Kevin Campbell made his senior debut for Arsenal in 1988 and scored nine goals in 22 appearances for the Gunners during their title-winning campaign in 1990-91.

He then helped the London club win the FA Cup and League Cup double in 1993, followed by the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1994.

“Being a London boy and growing up watching him and Ian Wright playing together was brilliant for us youngsters,” former Crystal Palace striker Clinton Morrison, 45, told BBC Radio 5 Live.

“The way they scored goals and the way they celebrated, that’s how we were, looking up to those two players as idols.

“Kev was like that even when he finished football. He still had that bright smile and I only remember the good stuff, brightening up a room and being a top player and a great individual.”

Campbell moved into broadcasting after his playing career and worked for BBC Sport and Sky.

“He was adored by everybody,” said BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Mark Chapman.

“It doesn’t matter if you worked with him on 5 Live or supported Arsenal, West Brom or Everton, he was adored by everybody.

“He was always so positive and always had a smile on his face whenever he came into the 5 Live sport studio. And he was a heck of a striker.”

Campbell moved from Arsenal to Forest in 1995 and spent three seasons at the City Ground, scoring 22 goals in 39 games during his final campaign to help the club win promotion to the Premier League.

Following a short stint with Trabzonspor, he moved to Everton on loan in March 1999, scoring nine times in their final eight Premier League games to help the Toffees avoid relegation.

He was rewarded with a permanent deal that summer and stayed for more than five seasons.

Campbell’s playing career came to an end with spells at West Brom and Cardiff.

“I’ve been watching the TV and everybody who’s come on has said exactly the same thing, what a great guy he was,” said former Everton defender Phil Jagielka, who joined the Goodison Park club after Campbell had left.

“He made a lot of people laugh, he always had a good smile on his face. I’d seen him around and about the place at Goodison.

“I played with his son Tyrese at Stoke. It will be a really, really sad day for the family and all you can do is send your regards and, hopefully, they will get through this tough period.

“What a guy, what gentleman, what a character. I don’t think I ever saw him without a smile on his face and he was always one of those people to come up to you and give you a hug and have a little bit of a laugh and a joke.”

Former Tottenham keeper Paul Robinson, also speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live, added: “He graced our lives in the media and we all got to experience a little bit of his charm.

“We’ve lost one of life’s good guys today, a genuinely lovely man.”

Former England striker Alan Shearer told BBC One’s Match of the Day that he was “lucky enough to play” with Campbell for the England Under-21s “and work with him on bits in TV over the years”.

“He had an infectious personality and a great character,” added Shearer.

“You can see, with the outpouring of grief today, how much he will be missed. Sending our condolences to all his family and friends. Such sad news.”

Lamine Yamal: Spain 16-year-old becomes youngest men’s Euros player

Published

on

Spain forward Lamine Yamal became the first 16-year-old to play at a men’s European Championship as he started Saturday’s Euro 2024 group match against Croatia.

The Barcelona teenager was making his eighth appearance for Spain, despite only being 16 years and 338 days old.

Yamal became Spain’s youngest player and goalscorer on his debut against Georgia in a Euro 2024 qualifier last September.

He has already played 51 times for Barcelona, scoring seven goals, after becoming their youngest player at the age of 15 in April 2023.

Among his records, he has become the youngest La Liga goalscorer and youngest player to start a Champions League game.

He broke the European Championship youngest player record by about nine months.

Yamal revealed recently that he would be doing school homework while at the Euros in Germany.

The previous record holder was Poland’s Kacper Kozlowski, who was 17 years and 246 days when he played against Spain at the delayed Euro 2020 tournament.

England’s Jude Bellingham briefly had the record aged 17 years and 349 days when he faced Croatia at Euro 2020, before Kozlowski, who is now a Brighton player, broke it six days later.

Brighton: Fabian Hurzeler, 31, becomes youngest ever Premier League manager

Published

on

Brighton have appointed Fabian Hurzeler, 31, as their manager, making him the youngest ever full-time boss of a Premier League team.

Hurzeler, who guided St Pauli to the Bundesliga 2 title last season by winning 20 of their 34 matches, has signed a contract until 2027.

Brighton chairman Tony Bloom said his work with St Pauli made him a “standout candidate” to replace Roberto de Zerbi, who left at the end of the season.

Hurzeler will start with the side once he receives a work permit before Brighton’s squad embarks on pre-season preparations in July.

“He has a style of play that aligns with how we want a Brighton & Hove Albion team to play and I’m confident it is one our supporters will appreciate and enjoy,” said Bloom.

Ryan Mason, then 29, was briefly Tottenham’s interim boss in 2021 and is the youngest coach to ever lead a Premier League team, but Hurzeler is the youngest to do so on a full-time basis since the division’s creation in 1992.
