ken bensinger Presents...
in conversation with Alan Rothenberg
Ken Bensinger, the Buzzfeed journalist who broke the FIFA scandal and author of Red Card: How the US Blew the Whistle on the World’s Biggest Sports Scandal, will be in conversation with Alan Rothenberg.
In what should be an engaging conversation - for sports fans and fans of a good story alike – Mr. Bensinger and Mr. Rothenberg will discuss how FIFA corruption existed for decades before American law enforcement officials began to secretly dig, finally revealing that nearly every aspect of the planet’s favorite sport was corrupted by bribes, kickbacks, fraud, and money laundering. Not even the World Cup, the most-watched sporting event in history, was safe from the thick web of corruption, as powerful FIFA officials extracted their bribes at every turn.
Alan Rothenberg is the former president of U.S. Soccer during the 1990s who oversaw the 1994 FIFA World Cup in the United States and the establishment of Major League Soccer in 1996.
