The World Encyclopedia of Football – A Complete guide to the beautiful game
Football is the most popular sport on the planet. The game has come a long way since its early days as a rabble-rousing tussle between villagers. After little more than a century it is played professionally in over 180 countries and is one of the world’s most popular and profitable businesses.
The book traces the growth of football from its 19th-century roots. There are flashbacks to the dream tams of Arsenal in the 1930s, Real Madrid in the ’50s and Brazil in the ’70s.
Illustrated on every page with over 450 colour photographs and archive material, this is the ultimate reference guide, encapsulating the heady mixture of nostalgia and passion for the beautiful game felt by fans all around the world.
