"A comprehensive investigation into soccer in the 21st century covering corruption, betting, fan behavior, racism and the rampant commercialization of “the beautiful game.” As the corporations buy in, the fans lose out—ticket prices rocket, and soccer teams are more about marketing than sport. The author also examines the changing fan-base—from the inclusion of women and families to the ugly face of sectarianism racism and violence, as well as the “media” fans who change their colors from season to season."
