The craze for football speaks volumes for the whole world. However, there was a tinge of glory when after 12 years of hard work, this time it was hosted by Qatar in the Middle East. In the first FIFA World Cup in the desert region, the moneylenders of the Gulf countries opened their coffers and spent 30 thousand crores (300 billion) US dollars on the world’s biggest sporting event. According to one estimate, this is more than the total amount spent on all 21 FIFA World Cup events so far.
Earlier in 2014, Brazil had spent the maximum of 1500 crores (15 billion) dollars. Not only this, this amount is $ 6,680 million more than the total assets of $ 23,320 million of Asia’s top two rich Mukesh Ambani ($ 9250 million) and Gautam Adani ($ 14070 million).
