The dodgy road to the Qatar World Cup Part 2 – Sports Bizarre

Play Audio

It’s part two of our look at the history of FIFA, and its somewhat eccentric accounting practices.

In this episode, we look at João Havelange, President of FIFA from 1974 to 1998, who brought in the money and bought the votes to be President.

Titus O’Reily and Mick Molloy examine the career of João Havelange, the man who taught Sepp Blatter everything.
