Nowadays, many countries are in a bid to get the opportunity to organize international sporting events,such as the Olympics and the World Cup. Some people support the concept of hosting such events bya country, whereas others question the purpose of this practice. In general,I am in favor of the first viewpoint
In this age of globalization,international sporting events are high on many countriesagendas. For the host nation,it is a great chance to win global media attention to showcase the nation to the world in terms of its traditionscustomsand social values etc. As a result, the host country receives global recognition, which helps to enhance multilateral relations with other countries. In additionearning foreign exchange from the tourists who come to these events is valuable to the
national economy. Specificallyplane tickets,visas,and accommodation bring income to the country in the form of taxes, supporting the economic growth and allowing more money to circulate in the market.
On the other hand managing these events mayincur unnecessary costs as it requires theestablishmentof temporary facilities and services.For examplemost stadiums often need to be expanded and a large number of volunteers need to be hired.Obviouslyit is not feasible for less developed countries to invest in such events.There are cases of previous Olympic host countries that have sunk themselves into debt for years. To conclude,organizing multinational sporting events can pay off politically and economically for countries that can act wisely.
