A quick web search will throw up plenty more reasons.

I won’t be watching any match at this tournament or the next. Not in a stadium, not on TV, not on a dodgy stream. It’s all I can do or most of us can do. This **** only continues when there’s money in it. Nobody watching it = no money.

Noble stance, but I fear you're pissing into the wind.

Won't be long before the USA host or co-host another World Cup despite their poor Human Rights record . And on and on it goes .

Enjoy the Footie .
