I am not the biggest sports enthusiast. I am not the biggest fan of many Florida teams. I can barely tell you the difference between fut-ball (soccer) and football. I can tell you from a business standpoint why the FIFA World Cup championship game should be played in Tampa, Florida. There are five main reasons that come to mind when I made my decision on what I thought about the idea.
Reason 1: If the FIFA World Cup game was to be played in Tampa, Florida, it would bring much needed revenue to local businesses. This in turn would also bring much needed jobs back to the area. With the high unemployment rates in Florida, and the constant closing of many businesses, this would be a much needed economic boost for the area.
Reason 2: If people come from out of state or out of country, they are not going to go right back home. Many of the tourists will venture to other tourist destinations in Florida. These destinations would include areas like Daytona Beach, Orlando, Miami, and the Florida Keys. This would help in boosting the economy on a statewide level. This would help small companies to be able to hire many of the people who are unemployed, which will further boost the Florida economic status.
Reason 3: Many of the Florida fans, which are not able to travel to the FIFA games would have a chance to see them in person for the first time. This would be a morality boost that many Floridians need in these trying times.
Reason 4: This gives Florida a chance to show the world that even we can overcome economic hardship and learn to enjoy life. The way things are in Florida right now, this would be a great step in the right direction for the state to return to its former glory.
Reason 5: This would give Tampa bragging rights over Miami. Okay, many business people may think that bragging rights do not mean anything, but any true sports enthusiast knows what I mean. Miami has hosted many large sporting venues like the Superbowl. Daytona Beach has Race Week, so Tampa deserves to have the chance to be the home of the FIFA World Cup for the 2022 game.
These are my five reasons why Tampa should be the chosen venue for the FIFA World Cup championship in 2022, feel free to add your own or to argue mine. I am a writer and am used to criticism, so bring forth your opinions.
