Association football is the richest, most popular sport in history with a multicultural global following. It is also riven with corruption, racism, homophobia and a violence that has for decades resisted all attempts to tame it. Cashmore and Cleland examine football's dark side: the unpleasant, sleazy and downright nasty aspects of the sport.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book offers a series of theoretical perspectives on the `dark side' of football which will be of great interest to students of cultural studies and sociology. The book will also be of interest to people who follow the game beyond academia. ... a unique and invaluable resource for understanding the negative aspects of football culture." (Steven Harkins, San Francisco Review of Books, sanfranciscoreviewofbooks.com, May, 2017)

"This research is driven throughout by a mass online survey of football supporters and this approach makes the book a unique and invaluable resource for understanding the negative aspects of football culture." - LSE Review of Books
