Dilbar's picture

Throughout the history people have faced a lot of problems that have led to social tension among different nations or countries. Nationalism can be stated as one of the main international problems. A lot of measures have been taken to prevent people from expressing excessive patriotism and many people think popular sport events, such as football World Cup, Olympic Games and etc. can be very useful means to put the patriotic feelings of people in a right way. I agree with this idea as a sport fan and I will try to explain my view point below.

First of all, in my opinion great sport occasions are very succesful method to bring people belonging to various nations and countries togeher. As thousands of people go to watch these occasions, they have chance to know one another and it is clear that when we try to know people, we see no matter which country, nation and race they belong to, they are human like us, and we mustn't see them as our enemies.

Secondly, when we watch sport events, we observe a lot of sportsmen, whose national identities are different from us, as we appreciate them as representatives of their nations, when we feel sympathy for them, we usually feel sypmathy for their nation. I mean well known sport occasions help us to throw away negative feelings about strange nations from our brains and those events sometimes even create positive feelings about them.

However, I can't deny the fact that, unfortunately, sometimes great sport events trigger social tension. For instance, during many occasions fanatic sport fans-hooligans have had many battles with the opponent supporters and they have attempted to insult their rivals with their slogans.

To sum it up, although during some sport events there have been some problems among fanatic supporters, because of the above mentioned reasons, I consider big sport events create positive social atmosphere.
