What rich countries are interested in football?

The thread excelente post I am performing my partner Koldo Sandoval on the reasons why Canada did not come to the World Cup in Brazil and the little problems that it generated in the North American country, We found a strange relationship between the richest states and higher quality of life and the world of football. And is that if we look at the list drawn up by the International Monetary Fund for 2013 about countries in the world ranked by their gross domestic product (Schedule) values ​​of purchasing power parity (PPA) per capita data are truly amazing.

As none of the 16 countries with the highest purchasing power in the world has won a World Cup as that in none of them football plays an important role beyond Holland, Sweden and to a lesser extent, Switzerland. It is true that many of the countries included in the list are tax havens and mostly small and sparsely populated, but the classification gives us cause to reflect.

And it seems that football and personal wealth goes quarreling. Chance? Perhaps partly Beech, but outside of it also may have some indications pointing a why. The first is the excessive Football. This is the most beautiful game in the world and a business that generates thousands of millions. But, For all or some? Rather it seems that for a few.

In football money is wasted and in many cases are national treasuries which will end up paying the dishes does not miss anyone. The world of football is corrupt in general and although not want to admit generates many expenses to states and low income, except for a small part of the sector.

And it seems that the main victims are society in general and the particular. Have you ever thought perhaps they come from billionaires signings of great stars? ¿Of money from the clubs or their owners? How shirt sales or box office of their matches?

Football is a beautiful sport, like few that generates passions and emotions like no other possibly do. But, which is linked to poverty and middle class, perhaps because looking at him being livelihood to survive and make a fortune. The rich do not want to hear about it. They are smarter.
