It was a tough decision to make but More Than a Game will not be travelling to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
MTAG does not feel comfortable travelling to Brazil aware that FIFA and the Brazilian authorities have squandered billions on white elephant football stadia and further redistribution from the poor to the rich when instead they could have worked towards improving the lives of the millions of poor in Brazil. The ongoing protests throughout Brazil remind us that the citizens of that country are extremely unhappy that so much money has been wasted.
The ludicrous costs of attending Brazil 2014 also convinced us that it was a financial waste of time to attend this tournament. We will watch the tournament on the TV but sadly we will not attend.
Hopefully, More Than a Game will return in July 2015 at the South American Copa America, due to be held in Chile.
