Many nations nowadays are competing for the right to host international sporting events however some people think this is not a good idea. Hosting big sports events can be an issue for countries especially for those which are competing to win such right. It can be a problem and it is not a good idea since the competition may result to a sour relationship among them.
Big sporting events such as World Cup, Olympics, and others attract many affluent people and tourists to witness them. Consequently this would bring huge profit and long term economical increase in terms of tourism. However due to the benefits that could be possibly acquired, the right to host thus become a stiff competition among them. Although it would be a big advantage to win the right due to the prospect of having more infrastructures, labour force and promotions. For example, the Olympic that was held in China was announced with greater margin and apparently it acquired more prominence especially to its culture.

Furthermore, the opportunity to host such a massive event provides an opportunity to invite more people like businessmen and the like. Eventually it will result to further boost to economy. On the other hand, the negative impact of creating a compelling decision to which country will come out as the eventual host will most likely result to a deteriorating relationship among the participating countries. Aside from that, bribery and corruption might also happen among the competing nations.
Eventually, the hosting of such events will either result to a positive outcome or a negative one. It is therefore upon the hands of the corresponding leaders and officers of these nations to see to it that everything is done according to the best of interest of all.
