Has the FIFA World Cup become a Qatar-strophe?

The Football, or Soccer, World Cup has kicked off in Qatar. For 2 weeks the world’s attention will be trained on Qatar as the world’s best players compete for the ultimate national prize - winning a World Cup.


But equal to the attention focused on the pitch, is the climate surrounding this event. There’s been a lot of media commentary at Qatar’s human rights record, at the migrant labour used to build these new football stadiums, and how they ultimately won the right to host the world cup in the first place. 


In today’s episode of The Dive Sascha and Alec set the scene for the World Cup, and then Alec speaks to one of Australia’s highest profile football commentators - Ed Kavalee - one third of the trio Santo, Sam and Ed.

How Budweiser salvaged its World Cup campaign

The FIFA World Cup wraps up in Qatar this weekend. France will take on Argentina in a heavyweight battle. Off the pitch, perhaps the most significant moment happened two days before the whole tournament kicked off, when Qatar and FIFA decided to ban the sale of alcoholic beer at stadiums. This took the event’s major beer sponsor, Budweiser, by surprise. The company had to pivot its marketing strategy on the spot.Today Darcy and Sascha discuss how Budweiser managed this change of events.
