  1. FIFA is exactly the kind of organization modern dystopia novels write about. “International” to the point of being completely amoral. Corrupt to the hilt and yet still able to attract millions of supporters because they’ve monopolized an entire segment of society.

  2. Blizzard : becomes one of the most hated companies this week for being pro China

    FIFA : hold my beer…

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.npr.org/2019/10/09/768679277/fifa-disciplines-hong-kong-football-association-after-chinese-national-anthem-pr) reduced by 77%. (I’m a bot)

    > FIFA Disciplines Hong Kong After Fans Protest Chinese Anthem Fans at the Hong Kong vs. Iran World Cup qualifier game in September faced backward and booed as the Chinese national anthem played before kickoff.

    > The Hong Kong and China national teams are separate, but FIFA plays the Chinese anthem because Hong Kong is considered an administrative region of China.

    > During halftime, Hong Kong fans surrounded the stadium, locked arms and sang "Glory to Hong Kong," a song widely adopted as the protest anthem.
