Some international sport events such as Olympic Games and World Cup (of football or rugby for instance) are an opportunity to encourage nationalist loves and distend some difficulties among countries. However, it all depends on the way that it is driven and the sense which every person give to that.
Around the world, there have had lots of wars and troubles between countries which have carried many rivalries that have produced tension and some hates in people toward some forests. It is why, some leisure activities like global sports might help people to face their bad feelings in an adaptive way.
On the other hand, sometimes sports awake strong fanaticism and a high proportion of fanatics can become violent with other after a game; what is more, on several occasions a group of people who follow a team have assaulted this one when either the score was not pro or the team did not play as well as people who support them expected.
Nevertheless, I could not agree more with the idea that these world sport event are a wonderful time in both, to deal with bad emotions and promote some patriotic feelings. Nonetheless, it is essential to create an educational campaign in order to avoid violence in general during these occasions.
In conclusion, from my point of view, I hardly ever find an objection to foster activities such as World Cups, because I think that it is a great way to solve old international problems, but there is fundamental to look for a way to prevent fanatic aggression.
