Deadly stampede could affect Iraq’s World Cup hopes

Iraq won the Gulf Cup for the first time since 1988 with a 3-2 victory over Oman on Thursday but the triumph was marred by a deadly stampede outside the Basra International Stadium.

The disaster could have repercussions for the country’s 2026 World Cup hopes.

As fans tried to get into the stadium hours before kickoff, there was a crush that killed at least two people and injured dozens, a health official said.

It was a blow for organizers of the first international soccer tournament hosted in Iraq since 1979 as the bigger prize of hosting 2026 World Cup qualifiers seemed to be within reach.
Due to security concerns, Iraq has staged only two World Cup qualifiers since the U.S.-led invasion of 2003, against Jordan in the northern city of Erbil in 2011 and Hong Kong in Basra eight years later. All other competitive games involving the national team have been played in neighboring countries such as Jordan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

Baghdad last staged a competitive international game in September 2001 against Bahrain but was finally scheduled to host a 2022 World Cup qualifier against United Arab Emirates on March 24 last year. After a missile attack on Erbil 11 days before the game was to be played, however, the venue was switched from the Iraqi capital to Saudi Arabia.

The deadly stampede outside Basra International Stadium following Iraq's Gulf Cup victory has cast a shadow over the country's World Cup hopes. While their triumph on the field was significant, the tragic incident has raised concerns about safety and security, potentially impacting Iraq's bid to host the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Hosting international tournaments has been a challenge for Iraq due to security reasons, with limited opportunities to showcase their football prowess on home soil. The stampede highlights the complexities and risks involved in organizing such events, especially in regions with security issues.
Despite these challenges, Iraq remains determined to overcome obstacles and demonstrate its ability to host major football competitions. The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of prioritizing safety measures and ensuring the well-being of fans and participants.
