We would like to draw your attention to the report The historic treble in football. The legal, political and economic driving forces behind football’s transformation (Sport Policy & Management report No. 15).
Sport Policy & Management reports is a publication series of the Policy in Sports & Physical Activity Research Group, Faculty of Kinesiology and Rehabilitation Sciences, University of Leuven (KU Leuven).
The SPM15-report (Geeraert, Bruyninckx & Scheerder, 2012) aims to explain how the organisation and structure of football has transformed from the early developments of association football in England at the end of the 19th century up until its current state. As Europe has always been the epicentre of football, the focus is almost inevitably on driving forces mostly situated at the European or EU-level. The report analyses the economic, political and legal driving forces.
The report can be downloaded free of charge at http://faber.kuleuven.be/spm/(registration is obligatory).
