The dodgy road to the Qatar World Cup Part 1 – Sports Bizarre

Play Audio

With the FIFA World Cup in Qatar fast approaching, we begin a multi-episode dive into the corruption that led to FIFA thinking a country the size of the Falkland Islands, with no infrastructure and temperatures hovering around the 'too hot to play football' mark, could host arguably the biggest sporting event in the world.

To kick off, Titus O'Reily and Mick Molloy examine the problems with Qatar and look back at the formation of FIFA.

The next episode will be out later this week, so get ready for a festival of football and corruption.
