Qatar has reportedly brought out ‘fake’ football fans parade ahead of the FIFA World Cup which is set to start on November 20. Countless football fans have been seen celebrating in the streets of Doha, a week before the tournament begins. 

Carrying banners and flags with painted faces, hundreds of ‘fake fans’ are roaming around as supporters from different nations.

Online football fans are calling out the authenticity of the videos of these football supporters parading in the streets of Doha. Twitterati has labelled them ‘paid actors’ and ‘fake fans.’ These suspicious videos were shared on the country’s official community platform, Qatar Living.

These clips show these so-called fans from Brazil, England, Portugal, Ghana, Argentina, and more. However, whether these fans are migrant workers from Qatar who’re partying early or whether the parades have been officially staged is not yet clear, as reported by The Sun.
