John Oliver Slams FIFA on 'Last Week Tonight'

Posted By on Mon, Jun 9, 2014 at 12:30 PM

Apparently, Soccer is a religion everywhere except for the United States. FIFA, also known as the The Fédération Internationale de Football Association, will be holding the 2014 World Cup in an extremely remote location in Brazil. Brazilians aren't happy about this, but FIFA doesn't care. The country is allowing the soccer organization forgo paying $250 million dollars in taxes, according to John Oliver.

Last night, Last Week Tonight host John Oliver broke down every reason why you should never omit another penny to the horrible nonprofit organization. But despite all the corruption and unsettling future soccer fans will have to witness, everyone is still excited for the World Cup.

Watch the video after the break.
