By a wide margin, the World Cup in Qatar swept the online public referendum conducted by the British "BBC" network on the best version of the FIFA World Cup in the 21st century.
The referendum, which was launched on December 24 and lasted for two days on the English BBC website only;
It ended with the Qatar 2022 World Cup sweeping the five editions that preceded it in the current century of the World Cup, as it won 78% of the votes, followed by the Japan and South Korea World Cups in 2002 with only 6%.
The World Cup in Brazil won 5% of the vote, followed by the World Cup in Russia 2018 and Germany 2006 with 4% each, and finally the World Cup in South Africa 2010, which won 3%.

It is strange that the BBC did not comment on the sweep of the World Cup Qatar in the referendum or write down the number of people who voted in it (it is expected that it will be huge because it is a global referendum) even though a day has passed since its end and the article that launched the referendum was not updated, as it contented itself with publishing it on the English website Only without the Arabic version, in which it was expected that Qatar would sweep the World Cup by a higher percentage than its English counterpart.
Indeed, at the beginning of the referendum, the network tried to influence the voters by repeating the fabrications promoted by the West against the Qatar World Cup, without any reference to the global success certificates for the first Arab version of the World Cup, which confirmed that it is the best in the history of the tournament.
This is what Gianni Infantino, President of the International Federation of Football Associations (FIFA), said about the Qatar World Cup immediately after its end.
And in the manner of putting poison in honey, the BBC wrote that “the Qatar World Cup began with controversy about the deaths of migrant workers, gay rights, and the Winter World Cup, and ended with perhaps the largest final ever.” They repeated it, turning against him after the impressive success of the 2022 World Cup.
The response came as a shock to the British network from the audience - who speaks English - and perhaps I thought that he would be affected by these poisoned words by voting for the Qatar World Cup with a huge intensity that made all the other versions hide in shame from the level of organization, stadiums, hospitality and everything related to the tournament that will tire everyone who organizes it after that due to the impossibility of his access to the unique events. Which the world witnessed and was touched by the fans, teams and media, including many who were able to attend the full 64 tournament matches for the first and last time in its history due to the close distances between the eight stadiums that hosted the matches.
Argentina, led by Lionel Messi, beat France on penalties after an exciting match that ended in a 3-3 draw, in which French star Kylian Mbappe became the second player after Sir Geoff Hurst to score a hat-trick in the World Cup final.
The Qatar World Cup also had many surprises, as Morocco reached the semi-finals for the first time in the history of any Arab or African team, and Japan beat Spain and Germany, and Tunisia defeated France and Saudi Arabia over Argentina, which finally crowned the title.
