A paper on how devolving the power to award the finals of major championships such as the World Cup finals to all of FIFA's members could, instead of preventing corruption, turn into a cheats' charter. This paper looks at lack of activity at smaller federations, such as Montserrat and Guyana, and questions where the UD 250,000 awarded annually to all FIFA members is spent, particularly at small nations which play infrequently at international level. This research was given as a paper at the 2011 Play The Game conference in Cologne, Germany. The paper was then published in Issue Three of the quarterly journal, The Blizzard, and made available for open access online by sportingintelligence.com.
