What kind of corruption has allegedly occurred within FIFA regarding the location of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, in Qatar?
FiFA has recently been clouded in a cloak of shadows with many allegations of corruption over the past few decades which always circle around the same basic concept, greed. All of the scandals that have and may have occurred have always been regarding money. During this world cup FIFA has been condemned by the nation of individuals who love the sport most, Brazil. One would think the world cup taking place in Brazil would make the locals happy, however what the international public may not know is that the nation has gone through extensive lengths to give the city a “good image” to the tourists. Locals who lived in favelas, Brazilian slums, were evicted while the government is building a stadium in Manaus, located within the Amazon, which cost roughly $300 million. While many uneducated to the circumstances think the World Cup would bring Brazil money, in reality FIFA is the only one to really profit. Therefore the citizens and many activists around the world think Brazil could have better spent the money that went toward the World Cup.
This case regarding the World Cup has interested me into reading about FIFA and led me to learning and wanting to learn more about the allegations and investigation into the location of the World Cup 2022.
