John Oliver explains why we should all be very excited for the World Cup. And why we should also hate FIFA with every ounce of hatred we can collectively muster. 

Hey, non-brazilian followers, here’s a fairly good explanation of what’s going on around here. Please don’t support Fifa in any way. Ever.

One thing he didn’t say: there are some cities in which areas around the stadiums have, “for security reasons”, been declared “FIFA areas”. That means that during the Cup there’ll be days in which we won’t have the right to go there. There are parts of our cities that have been forbidden to us by a sports organization. If you live in a “FIFA area”, you have to fucking register your name in order to be allowed to go home. I have an elderly great-aunt in this situation. If during one of the forbidden hours she happens to get ill or suffer a fall or any of those things that made it really hard for elderly people to be alone, she will have to go stay someplace else, because no relatives will be allowed to stay with her at her home, or even go pick her up with a car.

Also, people who sell products in those areas are forbidden to work on game days, because FIFA will be selling their own products and won’t allow competition.
