On Tuesday night, Wales will play England at the World Cup in Qatar. Lawyers have cautioned against the danger of workplace rivalries crossing lines.
According to a reputable law company, the rivalry between England and Wales supporters may be getting out of hand, and one Cardiff pub is already taking precautions to prevent any unrest.
For Tuesday’s crucial World Cup group stage encounter, which would see Wales eliminated with a loss, O’Neills in Cardiff have taken the action of barring England fans.

Due to “the tremendous levels of emotion and support” displayed surrounding the game, the well-known pub at the intersection of St. Mary Street and Wood Street, the epicenter of Cardiff’s nightlife, has decided to house Wales supporters solely for the match.
A representative for the bar added, “We have decided to be a home fan zone tomorrow evening for the safety and comfort of all our crew and customers.
This means that we will only permit Welsh team supporters to enter the establishment.
We’ve never seen anything like the extraordinary levels of love and support for this particular game, and we want everyone to take advantage of it in a welcoming environment. I am Cymru!
Many Wales supporters have traveled to Qatar to cheer on their squad.
Thousands of English residents live in Cardiff as a result of the city’s enormous student population, but now that the O’Neills have made their position known, they will need to find another place to watch the game.
The news comes after a renowned law firm issued a warning about the risks for companies of heated debates between fans in the workplace turning deadly.
Companies have been warned that they could face legal action if an employee was deemed to have been abused in the workplace. The game is sure to be a hot topic of conversation in the hours leading up to Tuesday’s 7pm GMT kick-off and then after the game on Wednesday morning.
England has a strong chance of making it to the round of 16
According to Peter Nicholson of Nelsons Solicitors, a firm that specializes in discrimination cases, “not all staff members who are football fans may support England and workplace banter may develop between staff members who support opposing nations, particularly as Wales has qualified for the tournament and will be facing England.”
Employers should make it clear that any discriminatory behavior will result in disciplinary action if it crosses the line into racial discrimination based on nationality.
There have been no reported arrests and a generally positive vibe among England and Wales fans in Qatar. Supporters have been seen mingling in the fan parks.
Contrast that with some of the sights in Tenerife, where hundreds of fans have opted to watch the World Cup.
The two groups of fans have started fighting at the Spanish resort, and shocking videos of the altercation have been viewed thousands of times online.
