Making goals & headlines (business lessons from the world cup)

6.30.14

Neymar da Silva Santos Jr., the Brazilian fútbol wonder boy, scored his 100th professional goal on his 20th birthday in 2012. Now 22 and still in his formative years, Neymar has led his team to the World Cup quarterfinals.

But in the days following Brazil’s decisive 4-1 win over Cameroon, the news that reached further than Neymar’s obvious contributions to the victory was the fact that he was under investigation for displaying a line of clothing not sanctioned by the World Cup. While fans know him for his impossible goals and tricks and for his showmanship, the casual observer may remember Neymar most for his non-regulation underwear. Also facing potential fines, Neymar has more than his reputation at stake.

Not unlike the state and federal regulations for businesses, FIFA’s World Cup rules are extensive, complicated, and easy to break. At PayReel, we know the guidelines inside and out so that our clients can spend money on (and get in the news for) the things they want to, rather than for preventable errors.’
