Should we be having a World Cup?


In a world that is struggling to feed itself, is it correct that a single country should be spending a reported $11.3 Billion to host a sporting tournament? A tournament that is played by men that already earn huge salaries, and through exposure on a Global scale, have the opportunity to increase their own value.

    Football is the most popular sport in the world, so of course this is a "point" in having a World Cup. Also, players would not get paid so much if club teams did not have supporters who are willing to pay for merchandise and tickets.
