Hes on that Bobby Bonilla pay plan
Wow. UAE, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Bahrain cut diplomatic ties to Qatar for supporting terrorism and destabilizing the region.
Fuck Qatar so hard
shocked a country that still uses slave labor would do such a thing
I got my popcorn ready.
"A sum of $2 million was sent to the 10-year-old daughter of a FIFA official prior to Qatar being awarded the hosting of the 2022 World Cup, according to Bild.
The German daily is publishing from Tuesday American independent investigator Michael Garcia's report into alleged bribery and corruption during the bidding for the hosting of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.
In an extract of the article released on Monday evening, the popular tabloid claims to have got hold of the report of more than 400 pages which has never been properly published by world football's governing body.
According to Bild, in the report Garcia reveals that "a former executive committee member congratulated members of the Qatari federation and thanked them by mail for a transfer of several hundred thousand euros" just after Qatar was awarded the 2022 tournament.
"Two million dollars from an unknown source arrived in the savings account of the 10-year-old daughter of a FIFA member," add Bild.
The newspaper adds that "three executive members of FIFA with the right to vote went to a party in Rio de Janeiro in a private jet belonging to the Qatari federation before the vote to decide who would host the competition."
The Aspire Academy in Qatar, one of the biggest sports academies in the world, was also "implicated in a decisive manner in the manipulation of FIFA members who had the right to vote," the paper adds."
10 year olds, dude
FIFA just published the full Garcia report.
FIFA statement on recent media coverage regarding the “Garcia Report”
Can't wait to read all the articles dissecting this since I have no patience or time to read it in its entirety on my own.
Nothing will come of this unfortunately
this is true.
As Sponsors Shy Away, FIFA Faces World Cup Shortfall
Weird how being corrupt makes people not want to associate with you and how going to countries that have to bribe you for the tournament means a lack of enthusiasm for it.
wow i am ashamed of myself 7 years ago, fixed
Went down a mini Blatter rabbit hole
How he only got a 6 year ban and not a lifetime one is maybe his best trick yet
The gift that keeps on giving, I'm sure the arrests and investigations will keep happening long after the event is over. Qatar cheated to get the cup.
Too bad they didn't do this half a decade ago and maybe there would have been time to revote
Well, the good thing is the USMNT seems to be actively boycotting participation in the Qatar WC.
Hopefully they do the right thing and give it to England.
You misspelled the United States.
We get it in 2026 and let’s be honest England > US for fun at the event
Would be great if Fox’s contract would be voided because of this.
This is shocking news.
