Some articles you might find interesting

The way I see it, sports teams are like little countries. Fans defend their teams without thinking rationally, which often leads to violent situations.

I suggest you read these two articles, from the online magazine TVP Magazine, which stands for The Venus Project Magazine.

The first one is about the Brazil World Cup and other sports events and the funds used to keep those events going.

The second is a long article called "Nationalism, An Infantile Disease?". It covers the topic of the differences between nations, in order to show how nationalism is a bad thing.

I agree with you.
Just like in the article we could use the stupid amounts of money they waste on athletes to better our world and everyone who lives in it. Brazil hosts so many problems yet they're happy to spend $14 billion on a relatively useless event that only feeds a desire for superiority over others rather than treating everyone as equal like how it should be. This with Qatar spending $200 billion and Russia spending $50 billion, which wastes $264 billion that can benefit the whole of humanity.
