Brazil World Cup In Jeopardy?


Recommended Posts

A little too late now, Dontcha think?

I'm sure they'll secure the stadiums to at least have the games. People thought Sochi would be a mess. Most of these major events are preceded by some anxiety as to whether they'll go off successfully.

If it does turn into a Bleep Show, perhaps he 2016 Olympics will be in jeopardy. I'm sure China can put together another Olympics with 2 years notice.

The next three world cups are looking a little dodgy.

Brazil, with its obvious issues.

Russia, which might still be the subject of sanctions (everything blow over by 2018, and friends again?)

Quatar, where it can reach 50C at game time. FIFA recently acknowledging the mistake made on that one.

Still, at least there's footy...

People survived South-Africa four years ago and even though Brazil is certainly a nasty place for a person who's used to safe comfy western lifestyle it is still far safer than South-Africa.

I think the safety is less and issue than the fact that the venues might not be finished.

Brazil will host the world cup this year and that will bring profits to the Brazilian economy when as in two year's time they will host the olympics and the olympics always cause economic loss. So, hopefully the profits gained from the world cup will offset the losses of the olympics but sadly; Brazil being Brazil, the profits of the world cup will go into better pockets.

The world cup should always be held in Germany or the United States. Both have ready facilities for the event and everything runs like a clockwork. Hence the best world cups have been the ones of 1994 and 2006. This forthcoming tournament has a failure written all over it.

No, I don't agree with that at all. Any country in Europe, most in Asia, and quite a few in South America are more than capable. South Africa did a commendable job.

The problem with Brazil is that, even for a football mad country, the population can see the folly of spending (wasting?) billions of dollars on sporting events when much of the country lives in deep poverty. And they aren't afraid to let their feelings be known.

Atlanta Olympic Games were not a model of organization.

He was talking about World Cups.

I believe the Atlanta Olympics were plagued by corruption.

The Salt Lake games were fine, especially a few months after 911.
