Seriously, FIFA's just fucking with us, right?

Russia, Qatar, and I'm guessing South Sudan in 2026.

The winter games in Russia went quite well. To compare Russia with Sudan and Qatar is pretty ridiculous

Yeah. It's a great destination.

Some posters here seem to understand that the WC and the Olympics can be held only in the UK, USA and Australia. Now that´s not exactly the spirit and the purpose of these events. Qatar is obviously a mistake but Brazil was a great choice and a great WC.

Kilo - Its not so much that the WC and Olympics should only be in UK, USA, and Australia......
More that its time to make countries bid for the events with mostly EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE.
This idea of 'nation building' with sporting events is one of the biggest worldwide scams of the last 30 years.
One thing thats for certain, one thing thats for sure

Grecian, you can't afford the sun-cream for Qatar
Sadly, if we all paid for the funerals for everyone who died so far building the stadiums, I bet few of us could afford to go to Qatar.
Top decision Sepp Blatter & Michel Platini.
