Praise Jesus. Let's hope that the next president is not an asshole like this man.

Oh, well thats not good o.o can they stop that or probably not, huh?

They definitely can if they can prove that it was bought which shouldn't be too hard especially now Blatter is gone.

How are WC locations usually decided? I actually assumed they were bought or maybe auctioned or something XD

FIFA member countries (even countries together) can submit a bid for the World Cup, and then a bunch of FIFA officials (about 22 to 24) get to vote, and as soon as one bid gets a majority in votes they get the World Cup.  If after a round of voting one bid doesn't have a majority then the bid with the lowest amount of votes (England for 2018, Australia for 2022 for example) can't be voted on again in round 2.

As you can see it's really easy to buy a World Cup since you only need to buy about 12 or 13 votes, which especially for rich governments like Russia's and Qatar's isn't a problem.

Should have never been re-elected.

Every FA that voted for him needs investigating.

So, like, 2/3s of them?



Aprils fool?

So... How much dirt will be digged up?

I think the uncovered bribes are gonna be at least 1 billion dollar.

Wait, what did this guy do? I dont follow sports, but everyone here seems to hate him, so Im curious as to why everyone is celebrating

He's so corrupt to the point that he's willing to sell Qatar the World Cup, where the stadiums are build by modern day slaves.


not to mention that those stadiums aren't even needed after the World Cup. Especially considering they all have capacities of 40 000 and more.
Brazil was bad in that regard (for a handful of stadiums), but Qatar is going to be much worse.



Glad he had some sense left in him. Pretty sad that he got re-elected in the first place.
As president, all the things happening below him is a huge failure on his part, whether he knew about them or not.

Maybe Figo will enter the running again?
