Corruption in Football: How to Block the Cops, Fool the Judges, Confuse the Media & Pocket $100 m in Contract Kickbacks
Investigative reporter Andrew Jennings looks at how the leaders of world football at FIFA solicited massive bribes on multi-billion dollar World Cup contracts and, in doing so, circumvented Swiss bribery laws. Then, after they were exposed, how their spin-doctors convinced gullible reporters that FIFA was actually trying to clean house. Andrew will also look at the strange circumstances that led to Russia and Qatar being awarded the rights to host the World Cup in 2018 and 2022, respectively.
