People have different views about being the host country of an international sport. While some argue that it would be extremely beneficial for a nation when hosting a sports event, I suppose that it may result in some negative impacts as well.
There are numerous reasons why people support the idea of being the host country for international sports events. For instance, when a well-known sport event is held in a country, more people around the world will take notice of that country. As a result, it may successfully create better opportunities for that nation to establish more relationships with other countries. In the future, a nation can benefit from being a collaborator of rich nations, which leads to the development of the whole country in terms of economics, especially tourism due to the increase of foreign visitors. Furthermore, its citizens will have more choices of places to export and import goods and stuff.
In Spite of these arguments, I personally agree that hosting an event, especially an international event may have some detrimental effects on the country. As when in the process of preparing for the event, the host country has to make sure all the facilities meet the standard requirements because an international event is a huge and professional one that takes a lot of time and effort to make it ready. Therefore, it is surely beyond all dispute that the costs for all the arrangements and preparations including the construction of new stadiums and the installation of all the cutting-edge infrastructure. Eventually, when the events end, whether the turnover of selling tickets for the sport events can make up for the cost of its setting? Moreover, all the stadiums then can be unoccupied and that would definitely be a waste.
In conclusion, I believe that hosting an international sports event can help the country gain some benefits, but it can be worse for a country in some other perspectives.
