The international sports such as football, basketball, tennis, chess and so on brings people from all around the world to participate in this event together regardless of their nation, culture and religion. The events such as World Cup for example achieved friendly international relations that most of the diplomats and international organization like UNO was have difficulty to achieve. The international sports events really help to reduce tension between countries. Also such event helps increase patriotism within countries. The same interest among participants regardless of their nation could grow up to long term friendship. Instead of competing in battlefields they compete in football field where people don’t die and countries become good friends rather than worst enemies. However, not all such events go as smooth as the should be. It hard for some people to accept defeat in sport competition which brings to a conflict between the fans of winner and loser team. I saw such incident on the news channel where two competing team’s fans started criticizing each other and then this escalated to a fight between them. Nevertheless, such incident is rare and the police of the country where tournament is held are in high alert and always solve such conflicts before they escalate into something serious and dangerous. Even if such incident happens most of the countries apologies for behavior of some of its fans.
