The Fall of the House of Fifa

by David Conn
£9.99   paperback  Vintage Publishing (2018)

The Fall of the House of Fifa by David Conn The Fall of the House of Fifa is the definitive story of Fifa's rise - and the most spectacular fall sport has ever seen.
 
1904: 'No person should be allowed to arrange matches for personal profit' - Fifa congress
 
A century later: 'Fifa is a Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organisation (RICO) enterprise' - A judge in Brooklyn, using a term originally coined for the mafia
 
For forty years Joao Havelange and then Sepp Blatter presided over a Fifa now plagued with scandal - dawn raids, FBI investigations, allegations of money laundering, industrial-scale bribery, racketeering, tax evasion, vote-buying and theft. Now David Conn, football's most respected investigative journalist, chronicles the extraordinary history and staggering scale of corruption. He paints revealing portraits of the men at the centre of Fifa - the power brokers, the indicted, the legends like Franz Beckenbauer and Michel Platini - and puts the allegations to Blatter himself in an extended interview.
