The Ambiguity behind Qatar's hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup


Polemic Paper from the year 2018 in the subject Sport - Sport Economics, Sport Management, grade: 1, , language: English, abstract: Football on the field has always been associated with ethereal beauty. As such, FIFA World Cup provides an opportunity to billions of spectators to reap the benefits of fun-making, a phenomenon that seems to be associated with social satisfaction. On the other hand, this international sporting event creates an opportunity for entrepreneurs, as well as the host countries to reap the related economic benefits. This implies that FIFA World Cup plays significant social and economic roles. Despite the benefits related to this international sporting event, it appears that Qatar, the host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, might loss its fortune owing to the ambiguity surrounding the event, including the bidding process and suitability of the country. This is why it is suggested that FIFA should 'change its World Cup vote procedures to ensure fairness and transparency' (Becker, 2013, p. 133). It is argued that the choosing Qatar as the host of 2022 FIFA World Cup was a surprise. This is evidenced by remarks that 'the bestowment of the hosting privilege was a shock to many people worldwide; most news analysts thought the country didn't stand a chance' (Beydoun & Baum, 2012 p. 12). Therefore, this argumentative essay will justify the existence of ambiguity behind Qatar's hosting of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
