Présentation de l'éditeur

Founded in 1904 by representatives of the sporting organisations of six European nations then expanding into the Americas, Asia and Africa FIFA has developed to become one of the most high profile and lucrative businesses in the global consumer and cultural industry.  Recent years however have been characterised by a series of crises leaving the organisation open to critique and exposure, and creating a soap operatic narrative of increasing interest to the global media.

In this critical new account of one of the world’s most important sporting institutions, Professor Alan Tomlinson investigates the history of FIFA and the underlying political dynamics characterising its growth. The book explores the influence of the men who have led FIFA, the emergence of the World Cup as FIFA’s exclusive product, FIFA’s relationships with other federations and associations, the crises that have shaped its recent history, and the issues and challenges that are likely to shape its future. Particular focus is given to selected moments in the post- Havelange administration and the way in which FIFA, its current president Joseph Blatter and some key close colleagues have responded to and survived successive scandals. The book provides a foundation for understanding the growth and development of what is widely accepted as the world’s most popular sport; sheds light on the shifting politics of nationalism in the post-colonial period; and reveals the opportunistic forms of personal aggrandizement shaping an increasingly media-influenced and globalizing world in which international sport was both a harbinger and an early reflection of these trends and forces.

Fascinating and provocative, this is essential reading for anybody with an interest in soccer, sport and society, sports governance, or global organisations.

Understanding FIFA 29 mai 2015
Par Susan Southworth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
How did Sepp Blatter achieve reelection as President in late May, 2015? The leadership history of FIFA is complex and nowhere told better than here.
Tomlinson is the academic expert on the inside workings of FIFA, having studied it and written on it since the 1990's. His portrait of President Sepp Blatter is meticulous. Blatter was first elected President in 1998, years after the US somehow beat Morocco to host the 1994 World Cup, despite the fact the US had no soccer profile. In 2010 the US lost out to Qatar to host the 2022 World Cup and has been critical of the choice ever since.
Two days prior to the election of the next FIFA President the US Attorney General & the FBI managed to arrange dramatic arrests of FIFA officials in Zurich on US charges of money laundering through US banks in connection with the 2010 South African World Cup. The arrests suddenly gave life to the neophyte candidate for FIFA President favored by the US administration. Members of FIFA were lobbied on his behalf. Corporate sponsors of FIFA were pressured to threaten withdrawal.
Money laundering is obviously corrupt. Is timing arrests to sway an election not corruption? Why not arrest the officials two days later, in order to avoid the appearance of corrupt influence on the election? Or, why not, instead of the South African World Cup, investigate US citizens involved in securing the seemingly unlikely 1994 World Cup? Was the US interference too heavy-handed to succeed?
Although Blatter did not achieve a 2/3 vote in the first round of voting, his 133 votes versus the 73 votes for his opponent clearly showed he would win the required simple majority in a second round of voting. Prince Ali withdrew in the face of his unavoidable defeat.
This book is essential to everyone who has been transfixed by the drama in Zurich's Hallenstadion.
