Description

The motivations and mottos of events, such as the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games, consist of leveling the playing field worldwide, spreading world peace through tournaments and championships, and simply enjoying the “love for the games”. Each host country’s government overlooks the problems presented within their own country, and instead uses hard earned tax dollars from their citizens in order to construct such events and their accommodations. These funds could be used on rebuilding broken down communities and schools such as those found in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Hosting these events takes out billions of dollars from a country’s economy. Organizations such as FIFA and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) should provide the funds and the means for countries to be able to host these events, which will allow for the money in the respective countries to be used on the problems within their own lands.
