Popular events like the Football World Cup and other international sporting occasions are essential in easing international tension and releasing patriotic emotions in a safe way.
The world cup championship is organized every four years which is the most awaited year for every nation as it brings togetherness and unity among people of different language, culture and colors. During these events the whole world stops to watch international sporting events such as the Olympics and the Football World Cup in which athletes showcase their best performance to make their country proud. These sporting occasions have proved to be of immense help in easing international tension in unfavorable times due to border issues.
During this sporting activity, people travel from all over the world to one place or country to support and watch these players, thereby promoting universalism, peace, love and understanding among them which is important in easing global tension and freeing patriotic feelings. For instance, 2018 FiFA world cup, hosted in Russia as the 21st FIFA worldwide tournament saw the participation of 32 teams from the same number of nations which ended beautifully as France won the cup. The celebration alone from the French people in Russia was amazing as people from all over the world joined in dancing, clapping, jumping and expressing their affection and happiness.
These events are purposefully organized to promote international unity and make people realize we are all one irrespective of color or race. More importantly to stop wars and other negative perceptions that drive hate among people worldwide. In my opinion, such sports should be organized at a regular interval so as to always sense the need for human relations and devotedness towards our various place of origins. The gleaming joy on the faces of the spectators shows that these tournaments are simply amazing and memorable to the viewers.
In conclusion, popular sporting events continue to play an important role in resolving international tensions and liberating patriotic feelings.
