    Protests at the Confederatoins Cup in Brazil have cast doubt on the future of countries holding "mega-events."

    Brazilian "anger against the cost of staging the World Cup could undermine the argument that host countries benefit from sporting mega-events as they become too big for most countries to handle," according to Brian Homewood of REUTERS. Analysts said that UEFA's idea of splitting Euro 2020 into mini-tournaments hosted in 13 different countries "could be one of the alternatives which organizers could follow in the future." Although the Brazilian protesters "have a multitude of grievances, one of their main complaints has been the contrast between shiny new stadiums and shambolic state of public services including health, education and transport."
