Overview

Mega Events: Inside the FIFA World Cup examines the World Cup, a global competition for national soccer teams held every four years. With soccer the most watched and played sport in the world, the World Cup is a global phenomenon with one billion viewers expected for the final game in Rio de Janeiro this July. This course will explore not only the sport of soccer and its organization, but the logistics and development of the event as Brazil prepares for the 2014 World Cup. Join us as we examine the many dimensions of the World Cup—history, culture, politics, business, urban planning—and learn that the FIFA World Cup is more than a game.
