about this item

World football is in crisis. The corruption scandal engulfing FIFA is arguably the biggest story in the history of modern sport and a watershed for sport governance. More than a decade ago John Sugden and Alan Tomlinson laid the foundations for subsequent investigations with the publication of Badfellas, a ground-breaking work of critical sport sociology that exposed the systematic corruption at the heart of world football. It was a book that FIFA and Sepp Blatter tried to ban. Now re-issued, with new chapters covering the current crisis and the importance of critical, investigative methods in sport studies, this is essential reading for anybody looking to understand Blatter’s rise and fall.
