How FIFA corrupted the World Cup

23 nov 2022

And how Russia and Qatar took advantage of it.

On December 2, 2010, FIFA announced the 2022 World Cup would take place in a surprising country, Qatar. At that same meeting, they also announced that the 2018 World Cup would take place in Russia. These selections set off a new chapter in FIFA’s history, one where the public would have a greater sense on how bribery and corruption have a huge role in who gets to host this international sporting event.

The last 14 World Cup locations were decided by a group of 24 powerful men within FIFA called the executive committee. Their votes meant a lot to bidding nations and allegations on bidders bribing members of the committee lingered for decades. These allegations reached a new level when criminal investigations were launched nearly five years after that FIFA announcement. The fallout of these investigations nearly broke FIFA and tainted the World Cup.

It’s a story that shook the world of sports in 2015. Executives from across the globe indicted for bribery, fraud and embezzlement in the FIFA Corruption Scandal. FIFA – the organization that runs world football – had been investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice for years. Many of the allegations centered on bid bribes to host the games and vote-buying to obtain broadcasting rights to televise them. The corruption trial has been underway in New York and some of Latin America’s top football officials are being sentenced.

The 2022 World Cup is scheduled to be played in Qatar. It’s the first time an Arab nation will host the games. Despite the FIFA Corruption Scandal there have been no plans announced to alter the location for 2022.

Nothing compares to football. Joy, pain and injustice: It’s one of few sports which makes its fans experience the full range of emotions. There are some football fans who deservedly felt injustice during the 2002 World Cup.
Italians, Spaniards, Turks, Belgians and Americans: they all spoke out against the tournament’s referees. The refereeing was surprisingly average, even bad. The co-hosts South Korea’s run to the semis came out of nowhere. Which led many people to say that the 2002 World Cup was rigged, but is this true?

What is it like to be kicked out of an executive position, to lose almost all your friends, and to be vilified by so many? Joseph “Sepp” Blatter knows all about it. For almost two decades as president of FIFA, football’s world governing body, Blatter not only rubbed shoulders with the rich and powerful, he also headed a highly lucrative business, one that racked up USD 2 billion in revenue per year. Suspended after being accused of wrongdoing, he is currently serving a six-year ban from participating in FIFA activities. In this week’s Executive Talk with Editor in Chief Urs Gredig, the 82-year-old Blatter speaks about the mistakes he made, how much he’s suffered from the allegations, and why being born prematurely has helped him become a lifelong fighter.
