9781471149375: The Ugly Game: The Qatari Plot to Buy the World Cup
Quatrième de couverture :

When the tiny desert state of Qatar won the rights to host the 2022 World Cup, the news was greeted with shock. How had a nation with almost no footballing tradition or infrastructure, a high terror risk and searing summer temperatures beaten more established countries with stronger bids? And why were FIFA willing to sanction moving the tournament from its traditional time of the year, causing huge upheaval to the sporting calendar?
Soon, allegations were flying that the Qataris had secured the tournament by foul means. When Heidi Blake and Jonathan Calvert of The Sunday Times Insight team received a cache of hundreds of millions of documents from a whistleblower detailing phone calls, emails, bank transfers and much else besides, they were able to build up a devastating picture of what had happened. The FIFA Files became a global news sensation, unearthing massive corruption in the bidding process.
Now, in The Ugly Game, Blake and Calvert are able to tell the full, astonishing story of what really went on, and how the Qataris bought the World Cup. In compelling detail, they reveal the sickness at the heart of FIFA's affairs and raise a series of issues that question the position of Sepp Blatter, as he seeks to run for a fifth term as FIFA president. It is a gripping and shocking account that anyone who cares about the game must read.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

When FIFA awarded the tiny desert state of Qatar the rights to host the 2022 World Cup, the news was greeted with disbelief and allegations of corruption. How had a country with almost no football infrastructure or tradition, a high terror risk and searing summer temperatures of 50C beaten more established countries with stronger bids? The story behind the Qatari success soon developed into one of the greatest sporting scandals of our time.
And when the Sunday Times Insight team received a cache of hundreds of millions of documents from a whistleblower, the contents of the FIFA Files became a global sensation, unearthing the corruption that lay at the heart of the bidding process.
Now in this remarkable new book by the Sunday Times journalists at the centre of the investigation, Heidi Blake and Jonathan Calvert, comes the most comprehensive account yet of what happened and who was involved. Above all, it explains why, despite all the evidence, FIFA under Sepp Blatter continues to support Qatar - even to the extent of publishing an edited and abbreviated report into the process that was immediately denounced by its original author. The Ugly Game is undoubtedly the biggest sporting story of the year.
