Watford has canceled a friendly match against Qatar’s national team, the English club said on Monday, after two supporters’ groups voiced concerns about the country’s human rights record.

The two groups — Women of Watford (WOW) and Proud Hornets — had urged the club to display its support for “all human rights, the LGBT+ community and women’s rights” at the game but the fixture will no longer take place.
