Football is big business - the biggest sport on the planet, it has seen a massive commercial boom over the last twenty years which has resulted in it being worth $12 billion per annum, globally. Managing Football is the first book to respond to the growing professionalisation of the sport and the need for a text which both students on sport management courses and practitioners in the field can use. Expertly edited by two well known specialists in football management, it draws together the work of a world-class contributor team to form a comprehensive diagnosis of the most important issues facing football managers across the world, providing the reader with: * Cutting edge analysis of all the important issues in the football industry and the management of football * A clear and structured presentation and examination of key issues in football internationally * A strong balance of academic and practitioner analysis and comment * A strong pedagogy and structure allowing the material to be navigated easily by the reader * Global coverage of the football markets including England, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Australia, North America, United Arab Emirates, China, South Africa, Argentina, Netherlands, Mexico, South America, Russia. Managing Football is simply a must-read for anyone studying or working in football management and is set to be an important landmark in this rapidly moving and globally expansive field.
