Who controls soccer in Britain today? The FA? The clubs? The fans? The shocking reality is that organized crime is aggressively moving in and there's little the authorities can do about it. A revealing investigation into how organized crime has begun to take hold behind the scenes of professional soccer, this study discusses how drug dealers launder money by buying clubs, hooligan gangs have muscled their way into the boardroom, and the influence of Asian betting rings continues to grow. Through a series of dangerous undercover investigations, along with interviews with players, club officials, police, and the underworld figures responsible, the sensational evidence is laid bare.
