Soccer & Society, Volume 22, 2021, Issue 1–2 | COVID-19 and the Soccer World: Early Impressions and Initial Responses
Soccer, a.k.a (association) football is the most popular mass spectator sport in the world. Soccer & Society is the first international journal devoted to the game of soccer, and aims to focus on the game in the context of a more global world. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: NO SPORTS, NO SPECTATORS – NO MEDIA, NO MONEY? THE IMPORTANCE OF SPECTATORS AND BROADCASTING FOR PROFESSIONAL SPORTS DURING COVID-19 by Thomas Horky.
