It is contended that major events
football World Cup and similar global sporting occasions are pivotal in reducing tension between nations and catalyzing patriotism safely.
essay will elaborate on the reasons why I staunchly endorse that argument, including commitments to fair play and possible patriotic emotions from those initiatives.
First and foremost, international games mostly have clear regulations and always promote fairness. Major sports are carefully designed
the agreed guidance because they comprise many professional stakeholders, from the athletes to the promotors. Football,
, has comprehensive guidance for every aspect of the game, including the newly established technology for the referees to review whether the ball has passed a certain line to verdict an official goal which can be seen in competitions like UEFA Champions League and FIFA World Cup.
, when events are held between countries, the relationships are built with the spirit of promoting fair play and can be seen as a tool to strengthen their networks.
, a sense of belonging is more likely to be aroused when an individual represents a common identity, particularly on prestigious occasions. The presence of the attributes of their identity in a global scale competition will trigger pride and honour towards it.
, after witnessing an athlete's journey throughout a series of matches in the Olympics, most people would feel proud when their national anthem was played after their representation won the championship, like when the women's double team from Indonesia won the first gold medal in the nation's history for that category.
, the pride of sharing the same identity with a champion,
, is a common feeling for particular citizens after an international occasion.
, there can be no doubt that popular events are effective in building international relationships and growing national pride. I strongly agree with
view because sport mostly promotes fair play values, meanwhile feeling represented in a major event will usually release patriotic emotions.
