Pedro Donnini Posted almost 2 years ago The Importance Of Hosting a World Wide Sport Event, such as World Cup and Olimpic Games, to a Country, I dedicated a bit of my time to try to answer some questions: "Why do Heads od State worry so much about his/her country hosts a Fifa World Cup or a Olimpics Games? How this passionate participation is explained?" I came up with some ideas such as the infrastructure legacy for example.Does it help the economy growth? I found out through some works i looked it up and reach some disappointing conclusions for both of this questions. For the first one, The infrastructure legacy, It turned out to be not real effective since most of sports facilities won´t be used in a regular basis ( See South Africa) and the city construction are very often overvalued, because they have to be ready in time. The contribuition for the economy is fairly relevant, and it´s seasoned for the year of the event, GERMany GNP World Cup Contribuition wasn´t relevant at all ( see Simon Kuper´s Soccernomics). the only signficant change on hosting country index, found by Mr Kuper, is population happiness. which made me link governmet effort to power maintenance, the only reasonable motive for engage. So what do you think? Thank you for reading until here.
