FIFA Are Locked In a Series of Legal Disputes With Qatar's World Cup Organisers

FIFA have become embroiled in a series of legal disputes with the Qatari authorities with relations between the two main World Cup organisers at an all-time low as the tournament reaches the knock-out stages. 

Sportsmail has learned that throughout the World Cup FIFA have sent several legal letters to Qatar's Supreme Committee and are awaiting formal responses.

The legal letters are understood to relate to contractual issues that have arisen before and during the tournament, and will ultimately boil down to a battle over financial liability.
