Money and Soccer

Stefan Szymanski

Overview

Played by millions of people of all ages around the globe, the world's most popular sport requires nothing more than a ball and some open space. But professional soccer, known as football in most places outside the U.S., is not just a game – it's serious business.

Few understand the economics of soccer as well as Stefan Szymanski. As a leading sports economist, Szymanski teaches sports management at the University of Michigan and serves as a consultant to the Union of European Football Associations.

In this book, Szymanski helps us understand why the same teams keep on winning, and how the financial system driving the growth of soccer has evolved over the years. With empirical data gathered from over 25 years of research, Money and Soccer uncovers the numbers behind the goals.

"Soccer's growth has been remarkable over the last two decades... The forces that propelled it thus far are likely to propel it further in the next two decades. We should be planning for the problems of success."
