Five College MUN Liveblog: Feature on FIFA Executive Committee
Waka Waka! Fresh off the successful last World Cup in South Africa, the FIFA Executive Committee convenes to discuss the next step in advancing football — including awarding the bids for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups — and to address other issues like corruption, rule changes, and protests. Not only was this committee of particular interest to the Best Delegate team — Best Delegate‘s Parsa Sobhani chaired a FIFA committee during UCLA’s LAMUN before — but the quality of debate was high and the crisis team did an excellent job at creating tension within the committee. Check it out!
There is much to be happy about after a successful 2010 World Cup in South Africa but also new challenges ahead for FIFA.
