And is it truly a level playing field?  Look at the groupings.  The World Cup in Australia is drawing everyone together not in brotherhood so much as a reason for a drink up, brother!

It's also the same with the Olympics and other international sports. Since
everyone plays by the same rules and has an equal chance of winning, it
provides an opportunity to break the ice and get to know others as real
people. (Differences in population to draw upon for athletes and in money to
spend on coaching and training can make a difference, but even so, real
talent has something of a fair chance of winning out regardless of high tech
and wealth.)

On the other hand--British soccer fans. And in the early 70s a literal 
shooting war broke out between Honduras and El Salvador over a soccer game.

And of course there was the Terrorist Event at the 1972 Olympics which had 
the unique distinction of being the only Olympic event that I have ever found 
in the slightest interesting.
