Either way finacias are going to stop me from going to Brazil next year, hopefully i'll get back on the WC train for Russia. Hope Russia will be the same as it was when i last went in 2010 $4 bottles of vodka and 3 litre bottles of beer for not much more.
They always talk about fiasco in financing world events. In reality places that already have the infrastructure in place are the countries that are better able to hold large events. But if you look back to London you still had issues popping up from time to time about construction delays and funding issues.
The problem with Brasil they were given the World Cup and Olympics within a couple of years. In hindsight it wouldn't seem smart to give two massive events to a developing country who doesn't have the proper infrastructure in place.
